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.
