Met up with Ross this morning and headed out onto the trail at Branched Oak. The first lap was felt nice(except for a wipe out around a turn when rolling over some walnuts) and the temp was perfect for riding. Towards the end of the first lap I started to feel a little sick to my stomach and tired but kept going thinking it would pass. By the time we got 1/4 the way into the second lap I felt like heaving and could barely keep myself peddling. Ross got way in front of me but I kept on a made it through the second lap. After the second lap I was depating of going out for a third but decided if I didn't I wouldn't feel very good about myself. I'm glad I decided to keep going. For some reason the third lap felt great and I got myself all situated. We ended up doing about 15 miles.
After we finished we experimented with my bike by dropping the headset. I felt like I was just riding to high. So we lowered it a bit and I'm going to try it out tommorow in Wilderness and see if it is good or if I should bring it down more. I think its going to help me move on the downhills faster. I kinda wish I would have tried this at the start of the season.
Gotta go. I'm going to try to put up some pictures of Ross kicking my ass this morning later.
