Today was another TT at the same course as last week (Monrovia) but it was put on by another organization and they started and finished in a different place than before. They also moved their turn around from where the other people have it. I woke up feeling ready to race, warmed up well and felt good racing. But when I hit the turn around in 25minutes, I knew the course was short.
|Yes, there were other people in my race, but they left before awards, so I was on the podium alone like a chump|
And since I'm a Cat 3 on the road, I won "my race." Since these races are backed by Colavita, I got a bottle of XVO (extra virgon olive oil), which is totally sweet because 1) I buy Colivita XVO anyway 2) I'm almost out and 3) its like $20 a bottle. Score. Beats the crap out of winning a box of some shitty flavor of expired powerbars!
Despite the turns my life has taken recently, my training is going really well. I'm very focused (but I'm always pretty focused) and I'm able to push very hard. It's hard to say when you're not racing a ton but I think I'm on some really good from right now. The summer racing for me is just getting started and summer racing is less frequent for me than Fall racing, but we'll see how it all goes. It's gone pretty good so far these past couple weekends. And the training should stay up.
This coming weekend is the Indy 500 and because of that my nieces will be at my sister in law's parent's house, which isn't super far from here. I am going to try to get up to their house to see them for the day.
Well, I don't really have much else to say. I have a ton of stuff (little things, big things, tons of things) I'm dealing with right now, but this blog is about my cycling life (mostly). So that's how we'll keep it.
Next race for me will be MTB racing at BCSP. It's a couple weeks out (June 2), but I am feeling pretty good overall and will put in a couple more weeks of training to get started on MTB racing for the year!
