Hi everyone - long time no talk.
I've been busy pursuing a long winding descent, down from my racing highs, to Fredberry, RFD. My cycling had been an issue in a troubled marriage, and when that combined with injuries and extreme demands at work, I chose to back-burner training ad racing until I can once again give it what it deserves. My riding has been extremely sporadic: I've reached the point now where I look behind me to see if anyone will be passing me on my pseudo-training rides. Hasn't happened yet, but... This 'devolution' has been so hard, emotionally, that I haven't been able to bring myself here to write about it.
But now, here I am.
I'm not going to try to catch up on threads - just going to pick back up from here, and use you all like domestiques to get me back up the fitness climb. First step is to get enough fitness to where I can actually train!
So hi. My names is James, and I'm a Fred.
