It is only 7:12 but that is sleeping in for me. It is pouring rain outside. I wonder if they'll even have the mountain bike race. I rode the course yesterday, thankfully by myself. Some friends had invited me along (expert formerly pro level riders) but I decided to go it alone. I was glad I did. I struggled up every steep section, there was no spin, no nothing left in the legs from Saturday's race. I'd like to be able to spend more time becoming a decent mountain biker racer but it seems I can't do both. I'm still figuring out the roadie thing. Oh well, I'll be a Capitol Reef with friends in July and I'll get in lots of great trails there.
So now I am thinking about doing the TT next weekend. The only way to get better at them is to do them. Besides, being bad a particular type of racing has never stopped me before (except for maybe today where I just would have been in everyone else's way). So I'll strap 'em on and give it a go. I'm seriously considering trying it as intervals. A couple of hard minutes and a short recovery might be faster for me than trying to give it a sustained effort. That might also help keep the ADD in check. Hmmmmmm, thoughts anyone?
