my first cyclocross race is dec 14th. its going to be my first bike race EVER. i have been training hard for it and realized i am out of shape, badly. i know i can complete the race but i know its going to hurt. i am also going to get creamed by most, if not all of the other racers.
i have been riding my bike for about two years now, averaging maybe 20 miles a MONTH. in the last 3 months i have been doing rides of about 20-35 miles but at a slow comfortable pace. the last month i have been trying to do some max effort type stuff and i seriously suffer.
this high intensity stuff is HARD. i just hope i dont puke or pass out. AHHHHHHH
