Sorry for another one of those threads, but I need to semi rant...
We've been warmer than most in Oregon this spring, but the combination of my first cold in a few years, copious weekend rain, home improvements, and a kid on the way, my riding 'taint going well this year.
It sunk in last week when a healthy me was dropped on the team ride by guys who were leading me out at PIR and crits last year.
Here's to hoping warm April/May weather turns things around for me!
ES speaks the truth. I got a late start to early season training due to an injury and suffered in my first race getting dropped on the final lap of a road race. Since then I've gotten two top tens. It comes back fast when you get a chance to be consistent.
Congratulations! Fatherhood is an awesome thing.
Just ended my 4 years as a stay at home Dad, best years of my life.
As for the rest I am sure you will be back in no time.
Last week PIR 4/5 was pretty easy, nothing like last year.
I decided to not ride this weekend too, between the weather and the things to do I never got around to it. Season is long so is good to not burn yourself.
See you soon at the races.
