The end of summer is near. We've had some overcast days and even a little taste of rain. 'Cross is coming. Some people are already at it. Of course, I'm totally unprepared.
I think if I had a theme to my summer of racing, it'd be...distracted. Non-existent. I didn't race all summer. My summer schedule really didn't allow for it. I'm fine with that.
I have been riding, kind of, and I'm maybe kinda fit...but certainly nowhere near ready for what cyclocross demands of me. But that's okay, I'm not too worried. I'm calm. I enjoy this, and that's what it's all about for me right now. I'm coaching soccer four days a week, plus games on the weekend. That stuff is certainly worth while, but it sure eats in to your training time.
My bikes are in pieces, but I luckily have a single speed to mash around on. My body is not ready, either. But I really don't care. I think this is going to be one of those seasons where I race myself into shape, old school style.
So go ahead, race on. I'll catch up with you in October, at Alpenrose. I'll be the guy in the back, but not for long.
