Thanks for the warm welcome and good wishes. That is so helpful when I'm just starting out.
It sure looks like many of you have had great success. I love reading your Spark Pages!
Just a couple of quick questions - if you do a long bike ride (or other strenuous activity - burn say 500+ calories - 1000 calories), do you typically change (increase) the calories that you intake that day? If so, do you add mostly carbs or protein? Before or after the ride?
Also, in figuring my speed on my bide, I know how to figure it from my bike computer, for relatively flat terrain, but how do you count it when it is just one big hill after another. I did a short 7 miles tonight, but in a park that I can do downhill about 25+mph, but on some of the uphills, I am lucky to be at 5-6 mph in a granny gear at that. The 7 miles tonight took me about 35 minutes. I just want to enter it correctly on the cardio log. Definitely cardio - those hills are killer!
Thanks for the help!
