    Burnt Out

    I don't know about you guys but I am fried. Time to kick back and do some cyclo touring and gear back up for cyclocross season. Last weekend's omnium burnt the last match in my book. I lost the TT to my arch nemesis by 34 seconds. Th-th-th-that's all folks!

    Yeah me too. But I'm grinding it out until I'm forced off the bike for 4-6 weeks at the end of September.

    I'm now in the process of just riding around and enjoying the scenery. The Cheat Mountain Challenge finished my legs off for the season. I am planning on adding a little mountain biking into the mix and possibly getting out on my cross bike from time to time. Time to relax a bit before I start base in a couple of months.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Is it bad when I'm feeling a bit burnt out going in to the biggest race(s) of the season, Gateway Cup?

    I must've known, subconsciously, that I'd be approaching burn-out when I decided to only run 2 of the Gateway Cup races instead of 4 when I registered back in July.

    Oh yeah? I'll be there [as a 5, at any rate]. I'm doing two as well, Saturday and Sunday.

    on topic, I don't feel too burnt out. I haven't raced before so I was trying to make sure I would be prepped for this weekend. I feel like I could go fairly strong through the end of September, but I know at that point I'll be interested in backing off a bit and doing some threshold work.

    I hear ya man. I have the Green Mountain SR that I'm taking off for in a couple of hours and I'm just not feeling it. I think I'm getting too old to be doing 30+ races a season.

    I'm looking forward to putting the road bike away when I get back, stay off the bike for a couple of weeks, and start getting ready for 'cross.

    Burnt out, yes I am burnt out. the raging wildfire has me evacuated from my home and I have not had the energy to ride for about 10 days now. (smoke has been real bad) Somehow watching my mountains and trails burn has me bummed. My Scott CR-1 was the second thing I loaded on my car. The wife was first.

    I'm done for the season as well. I'm taking an impromptu week off due to a crash last weekend. After this week I'll be tooling around going easy and hard only when I feel like it. Hopefully I'll get in some Mtn biking as well.

    The sight of my fixie in the corner of my basement sparked a little smile the other day. I'm anxious to get away from the racing and get into some of those great fall rides.
