Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The pain and misery of outrageous position,
Or to take arms against a mass of men,
And by opposing, beat them?
The above slaughter of Hamlet, from memory and then liberally edited, suggests that I am considering a time trial.
The question is whether or not I should actually do the TT as part of a P1/2 TT/Crit/RR/Crit end of the year series. The TT in question is 10 miles long, and damn near pan flat. I have no aero equipment. I am power deficient compared to my peers. But, the series is an omnium. 1st place in each race gets 20pts, 20th place gets 1pt, in all of the races except the RR, which is double points.
So, should I save my matches for the remaining three races, which are the next day, then both days the following weekend? Should I spare myself the mental beatdown that would follow closely on the heels of such an attempt on my part? Or should I just go for it, and see how badly I do in fact suck?
