Did the Paul Smiths to Santa Clara out and back that I'v been wanting to do for a long time. It was very nice :) also our average was fast, especially for 40 miles. I didn't take any gu's because I'm trying to build up endurance so the last 7 miles were a drag but I felt really good for most of it.
So we were supposed to go out with our friend Elizabeth but she got the flu and isn't even going to class BUT this international freshman decided to join us. I really didn't know how good he was but when I mentioned the 12 mile loop he seemed totally down. Unfortunately his bike is some crappy thing he got from Walmart or something and it was making a lot of noise... We finished...he was very tired and I felt kinda bad. :/
Nice that he came out with us though! It would be good if he had someone his speed to go with and someone our speed to go with us because a lot of the time I was just coasting and waiting. I guess it was ok because I am sick so I shouldn't have been pushing. We shall see.
