It was a long season. It might not look that way on paper, but I busted my ass this year. I trained, I raced, and I rode more often than I didn’t. So nursing a few injuries and taking an end of season vacation feels pretty damn good.
It’s October, I have my first Cyclocross race next weekend, and I’m laying by the pool at Disney’s Vero Beach resort. Next weekend is going to suck, I haven’t practiced mounting and dismounting nearly enough — but it’ll be fun. And that’s important, because while cross will keep you in great shape, if you’re too serious about it there’s just no way to sustain thru the winter..
So I haven’t ridden much this month, but I’ve gone on a few runs, and I’ve enjoyed some time to myself. It’s all good.
