Metric Century

Finally, I managed to finish a metric century (100k = 62 miles) with no cramping or bonking issues! For the past two years, I've run into problems around the 55-60 mile mark, and had to limp to the finish. Today, I did a hilly course in about 4:25, averaging about 14.5 mph overall, and had no such issues. This course totaled just over 3000' of climbing.

Oh, I was pretty tired between the 30 and 50-mile marks, but the rest stop at 53 miles invigorated me, the last 10 miles were mostly downhill with some rolling, and I cruised in to the finish feeling pretty good.
