It has been a while, but I am still here. I am riding the road bike more and taking a break from racing for a bit. I have abandoned any "real" training structure, but still maintaining a somewhat-if haphazard- attempt at keeping my overall fitness level up to snuff. Surprisingly, I am riding stronger than I ever have right now. I am mixing in my son's baseball schedule and my daughter's ballet schedule and my softball schedule with my riding time and it is working out nicely.
I am racing the 12 hours of Cranky Monkey with my lovely teammate Liz again for another chance at a podium spot in the co-ed division; we took 3rd at Bakers. She recently old me she is ready for a singlespeed build up. Wait, I have to wipe the tears from my eyes and catch my breath. Ok, anyway things are going very well for me right now and I am aggressively going after certain segments to push my limits a bit more; with the help of my friend Bruce who is back to riding our shop ride on saturdays. I really enjoy riding with Bruce. He pushes me to ride harder and even though I dont always want to, I know it is good for me.
So, thats it right now. Hopefully I can keep this momentum going into Quantico.http://www.hammernutrition.com/
