This Season Needs an Enema
This has been an odd race season thus far. Typically, I'd have at least twice as many races under my belt at this time and I'd still be bitching and moaning about my lack of fitness. This year I've cut back on the races for a couple of reasons. 1. I'm trying to not let my racing dictate my family's summer. 2. my schedule this season has been crazy with stuff happening constantly (like finding out yesterday that I have to go to an impromptu wedding this saturday!).
All that said, I still felt like things were progressing at a slow and steady pace and, on the upside, with so little riding and racing happening, there was ZERO chance of burnout happening. But then, my bike exploded, we got a ton of rain and then I picked up a lovely little bug that has kept me sidelined for the last couple of days. Two weeks have passed with two days of riding and I can feel what little fitness I had slowly fading away. Bah.
