A couple of weeks ago I wrote about a lack of motivation for training at this time of year. Long season, temps getting colder... blah, blah, blah.
Now, after getting the cyclocross bug, I feel motivated. This whole week, I've been up at 5:20 a.m., training until 7:00. Excited to get up and ride. Getting back to an "in season" diet, going to bed and waking up thinking about riding and racing.
Even if I never get really fast at cyclocross, at least it has kept me motivated at this point of the year.
Got the Redline back last night, new cranks- ready to go! I have heard that tomorrow's course is shorter than last week's and a bit more technical with a long paved climb. The weather looks to be beautiful, 50s, sunny and dry. I am thinking about doing both the 40+ and the 4s, depending on how long Elora will let me stay.
Congrats to Christine Vardaros for her 11th place finish at Koppenbergcross in Belgium yesterday.
