The Approaching Storm
At this point with the impending race of my life looming on the horizon I find myself not be very excited. I find myself being more apathetic and resistant to training and wanting to do more of other things that won't benefit me. Maybe it's because I don't think that I have done enough training? Maybe I have done enough and will somewhere find the mental fortitude to reach down deep and be able to pull out some amazing riding. Maybe I am burned out from other things, such as work and that is affecting my mindset? What ever the case is I can not figure it out. I had a good time at Wagon Train 12 hour MTB race. I rode for about 10.5 of the 12 hours. Felt pretty good at the end and I think that my fueling was good, it was my wrists that eventually forced me to throw in the towel.
I find myself debating whether or not to join RD, Douglas and others this weekend for a grinder, nothing against those guys, I love hanging out and riding with these guys. This is my last weekend that I have available due to work to get in some decent miles before the race. Join the group or head out on my own or just sit at home and do nothing? I need to figure out what is going on and get on my horse or stay out of the stable.
