Oh Crap – What did I do?

Sitting here on Monday night just wondering what I did on Friday.  No – it wasn’t a drunken binge but it may have been something even crazier.  I registered for a bike race.  Been cycling for about a year and a half now – nothing too serious though.  Logged just under 1,000 miles for 2010.  Have already logged 45 for 2011.  I guess I wanted to put some pressure on myself to get moving.  I know one thing, I am scared to death about it.  I don’t think it is an easy course either.  Morgantown, WV April 2nd.  I am hoping to compete in five of the seven Appalachian Bicycle Racing Association Road Races this year so not time to start like April.  I just hope I don’t totally embarass myself – knowing the terrain around here it could be brutal.  I rode 28 miles Saturday and 20.3 Sunday.  Outdoor riding is out during the week because of darkness so I have been riding on the trainer. 

 

I had the bright idea that I would blog my training for the next two months.  We will see how it goes and if I can keep up the blogging yet alone the training.

 

On a positive note – I am excited to race and looking forward to the challenge.
