Doing the Bull Dance, Feeling the Flow.
I felt like writing something on the blog, so here we are.
Have you lost anything lately? Cell phone, GPS, sunglasses, a snake? If so, I've probably found it one the side of the road in the last week or so. Seriously, I found a fully functional Garmin NUVI on the road last week and this week I've already found 2 cell phones and three pairs of sunglasses. None of the phones or glasses were keepers, but the GPS is money. I actually gave it to my brother to make up for being a mean older sibling. As for the snakes, been seeing like 5 a day. The majority are dead, but I've seen some fatties that were still alive and scheming to eat me.
I've been scouring the racing websites for something good for this weekend, but there really isn't much worth traveling for. There are 2 crits within an hour drive of Bloomington this weekend, but I don't really want to waste 2 good training days on 1 hour crits. The solution, ride to the race and get a ride home. The race on Sat. is going to be about 50-55 miles to get there and then tack on a 75min crit at the end and it should be a good training day. We'll see how the legs feel on Sunday morning before I decide if I'm gonna do the same thing again.
With Little 500 coming up next weekend, I'll have the next two weekends at home, and that will be nice. I'm trying to save some of my "travel bullets" for later in the year, because if I don't, by the time cross rolls around i'm sure I'll be needing all the mental strength i can muster to deal with the full-on cx schedule.
A couple more weeks of training around here and then it'll be full time racing and recovering in-between.
Alright, I'm outta here. The blogging energy I was feeling earlier is dying out, so I'm off to bed.
