So, the last time I wrote, It was Jan. 10th. It's been three weeks since. I haven't had a lot to write about since then in terms of actually doing anything related to riding. Oh, I've been on the trainer a couple times, including that day, the day after, and on Saturday the 15th.... Sixteen days ago.
There are excuses and rationalizations I could provide. Some legit. Others not so much. And the truth of the matter is that the next two weeks won't have a lot of seat time either. These are my final days at my current job, the one 250 miles away from home. Soon, I'll be starting my new job in Madison and I will be home full time!
So, there you have it. I have logged about 2h 35m (guessing that equals maybe 40 mi) on the trainer so far. Nice thing is that I was able to move up to 45 minutes pretty quickly. (In contrast to last year, when the first days were hell.)
I am excited and anxious. That was reinforced this weekend with the route announcement for RAGBRAI XXIX (see http://ragbrai.com/routemaps/2011-interactive-maps/). The jerseys are on sale, too!
|NICE! (and only $60.00)|
Anyway, I am getting ramped up to ride. Even if I haven't actually ridden much yet. And I feel a little guilty for not riding more. But I cannot change the past, only determine my own future. And that future includes more time in the saddle.
Oh, and as you can see, thanks to the Fat Cyclist, my blog is UCI approved! Woo Hoo! Thanks Fatty!
