That's right it's the middle of the week. The misery is just about over. I always start to get a little excited when Wednesday comes around. You only have to suffer through two more days, then you get a couple of days. Believe it or not I do like my job and the people (for the most part) I work with. I just enjoy my weekends more than the week days.
Now that the sun is staying out longer I can finally get in an afternoon ride. Time changes in a few more weeks and nobody looks forward to that more than I do. Last night I hit the woods right after work and it was perfect, it hasn't rained here in few weeks, everything is dry and fast! I haven't ridin a lot this winter as I have talked about already but I am starting to get the urge. Racing season is like three weeks away and I am beginning to get excited. All I have said for the last month is that I don't want to race. Now I do!
My times are starting to pickup, not far off my fast times when I am racing and training. So I feel like there is still hope! I have decided that unless somebody wants to give my bikes and uniforms or other free stuff I am going it alone this year. No club teams, I either want a sponsor or I will do it myself. That way if I don't want to race a particular race I don't have to.
Have you ever seen those army duffel bags? I have two of them slam full of riding clothes. So I sure ain't paying for more! The team I helped get started is doing well, they have signed up a whole group and won't miss me. They might miss my points in the team races but that's it. No hard feelings I just want to move on. I liked it better when I was the only one wearing the uniforms for my shop, now they have a bunch of people out there. I like to fly solo.
Remember, lead don't follow!!!!! At least I get more satisfaction out of it that way. I like to be in charge. Looks like I am heading to Virginia on the 12th for the race Sunday the 13th. Kinda getting excited about it.
So last night I went right after work and hit the trail. My time was only 2 minutes off my fastest time ever for this particular trail, so yea I was pretty stoked. I think that's what has me rethinking my year of riding.
