Finally a bit of time for a quick post. Only had to work at the college today. 2 days in a row of leaving the house for work at 8 and getting home after 11:30 gets old fast. Those hours actually aren't to uncommon for a lot of the machocistic chefs like I used to be but it's hard for a guy trying to train to be a mediocre bike racer. Anyways I have still been have been able to get a little bit of time on the bike. Yesterday and today I got out around six am for some fast paced trips through wilderness park. I actually do like to ride at this time. I love being up and being out at dawn and dusk. I like the twilight feel of it as it's still dark but the light is creeping up or out. It's also nice cause I got the park all to myself.
I've really been digging riding my mountain bike lately too for some reason. Not that I don't always but with the new shifters and front der plus cutting an inch off each end of the handle bars the bike is running smooth. What I have also been thinking a lot about lately is how much I enjoy riding this particular mountain bike. The bike just seems to fit me and my riding style perfectly.
And for some reason in the last few days I have been really focused on training and what I need to do to get ready for the few races that I have left. I've been watching what I eat and have been getting my plan ready for what I need to accomplish in my upcoming holiday weekend of extended training time. I really wished I would have gotten my shit together and made arrangments so I could have gone to the Dakota 5-0 race this weekend. I think it is definetly going to be on the schedule next year.
I did see today on Nebraska Cycling news that they have the series rankings up for the psycowpath series. I'm sitting at 7th in my category. Not exactly where I want to be. I think that's another reason I've been so focused lately is I've only got two more chances to meet my main goal of the season.
A big congrats to my man Ryan though. He's sitting at number one in his category. Rob is also doing well sitting in second in his.
Other than that I need to go catch up on some reading.
