My sympathies to everyone dealing with sick parents. I meant to say this earlier but had a heck of a weekend.
Race went OK but power was way lower than what I was expecting. 7th/15, not what I hoped for, but not too bad. I feel something is off with my training or resting or position, or maybe I just make less power on the TT bike than the road bike... My friend and my coach are saying "don't beat yourself up" - but I'm not beating myself up, I'm looking for some kind of constructive analysis with action items. On the positive side, my first race post-crash went without a hitch, I did all my pre-race stuff on plan (equipment, nutrition, hydration, warmup), concentrated, executed my pacing strategy (apart from failing on the overall number), wasn't paralyzed by fear like i was last year when this was my first race ever, etc etc.
My sewer repair was worse than expected, they had to dig a second 10 foot deep trench when the first one hit bedrock before reaching the attachment point to the pipe. Poor tree has a trench on each side of it, so it has roots in only 2 directions now. Contractor said it should be ok, but I"m doubtful. Guess I'll find out when it does or does not make leaves in a few weeks. $6200 later.... and not covered by insurance... ow.
