New Found Motivation

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.

Unfortunately cyclocross is taking away strong riders from the Judson.
