This is me this season.
After last night's weekly Thursday excursion at the Cove (the ride I lead, but haven't been to in over a month and a half) I am certain that I am not ready for racing. I will get pulverized. I spent this past winter training on the geared bike and left the poor SS hanging in the basement. Big mistake. Trying to race at the level I was last season is unreasonable based on how I felt last night. I may do the Mill Mountain MTB Hill Climb next weekend, but the cross country stuff probably won't be in my future. I'll be riding the Rig and having fun. For a change, I won't give a rip about how fast I'm going.
