Back on track


After a couple weeks off the bike and I feel good about riding again. I sold my PowerTap and am going to avoid making any strict training plans. I love the analytical side of cycling, but I'm a little bit obsessive compulsive and it eats me up mentally. I can't afford a coach and think this is best. To be honest, the last time I trained with power was in 2006 and I suffered some serious burn out. This year was a little different, but I was still feeling pretty down and found myself getting too heady with the numbers so screw it.

I spent the last three days on the mountain bike doing epic rides out in St Charles and enjoying the shit out of it even though I could feel my brain melting and my fitness could only get me through 2 hours before the pain curtain dropped. The music was loud.

Loosely, I'm going to ride lots up until September, maybe throw in a race or two for kicks and then see what the mountain bike calender looks like. After that I will probably start riding a little less but much harder to get ready for CX and hope that Shottler flats a lot, because that MO FO is going to be unstoppable. Congrats to him for claiming a step on the podium at Nationals!

Peace!
