The Bonk Post
|April 3, 2018||Posted by Melinda under Uncategorized|
I went for an awesome 20 mile run on Sunday with a friend (see the pics on the facebook page) and had the easiest/best/fabulous 20 mile training run EVER.
My friend, unfortunately, did not. In fact, she spent the last hour in a pretty serious “bonk”. After she started talking to me again (she probably spent the one hour bonk silently swearing at me inside of her head. It’s OK Jo, I didn’t take it personally) she told me I needed to write down my approach to fixing a bonk.
This post is now available in “Go Ride Far.”
“Go Ride Far” is a collection of revised and updated posts, as well as new content that focuses on what I wish I had known prior to my first endurance ride. (original release details here)
For the price of the fru-fru coffee ($3.99) the ebook covers:
- How to easily and intuitively back a trailer
- Take control of your conditioning and training
- Recognize and fix a “bonk”
- The never before told story of Dr. Mel’s first endurance ride
…and more from the running, riding, writing veterinarian and Singletrack Press!
Paperback versions ($9.99) are available from Amazon, or if you are in the US and want a signed copy directly from me ($10+$2 shipping) contact me at [email protected]
If you REALLY want a copy of this post and you are McDonald’s coffee broke (seriously, any size for a $1?) and fru-fru coffee is not in the budget, contact me at [email protected] with the title of this post and I’ll send you a pdf copy of the post/chapter.
