Wow, its nice outside. I don't know if I can make it to my 2:30 quitting time.
It looks like some good riding weather. Hmmm... what to do.
I had a good week last week as far as riding goes. The weekend wasn't so good. Saturday I left in the morning underdressed and came home early beaten by the cold and wind I wasn't prepared for. The temp with wind chill according to the weather channel was 45 degrees. I had a short sleeve jersey and shorts. I was not happy during that ride. Saturday night I had a few drinks which gave me a pretty good headache Sunday that kept me off the bike. It was a bit disappointing since it was so nice but I needed it. Which brings me to todays point to ponder... noon stopping time or wait for the 2:30 whistle (there isn't really a whistle).
On the mtb front I am getting pretty pumped for Iola. I know it is a few weeks away yet but I am already getting those little butterfly's in my belly that make you poop. I was trying figure out why I am getting anxiety already. I figured it must be from the fact that as it gets closer to race day I am out of options but to race SS. Not that its a bad thing but it gives me so much more to think about. I have been known to overthink and overanalize things to the point of obsession and its starting to get that way. I need to get this first one down.
Who says SS'ing is easier? To me there is more to worry about. With gears you didn't have to, there were 27 and at least one would work. Now it is so important to get it right the first time and that's where the anxiety is coming from. I know it probably wont be that bad which I why I wish we could just get on with it already 'cause I am sick of feeling like I have to poop.
