Well, this is the longest I have gone without boring you with my usual pointless bantering and frivolous writings; but I figured two months was long enough.
There hasnt been too much happening in the way of racing; ok nothing has been happening. I aint doin' no kind of dat racin' stuff till next year. I even thought that I may decide to "retire" from racing due to the fact that I am having a blast just riding and doing as many junk miles as possible. In fact, this has been the lowest race total sincel 2007 for the year. Funny thing is, I had some of my best results (at least consistent) this year; all top 5 finishes. I do still have some goals that arent race oriented for the final leg of this year, though.
I am also going to beat my previous best of 7,500 miles in the year as well. A little over 300 miles to go with a month and a half to go.
I have also destroyed last years best of 332 personal records. As of today, I am at 414. I really have felt a bit stronger than the past few years even though I have pretty much abandoned any form of training known to man.
I turn 46 pretty soon and I really dont feel that old, em er young. I am still putting up some pretty good consistent efforts. My recovery seems a bit slow, but again, that is what fun junk miles will do.
Most of my rides are of the road variety with at least two mountain bike rides a week. I am feeling pretty strong on the mountain bike, although my technical skills seem a bit rusty as of late.
On another note, our Aviation Velo kits arrived and man they look great. I have to admit, I
So, next year I may just focus on endurance races instead of the short stuff. I have a great co-ed partner in Elizabeth. I really want to do the Shennandoah 100 this year in the SS class so it is going to require a new mindset on my part. We shall see if I can maintain some sort of training plan. Hmmmmm...
