Wow, what happened to the past year? It’s already time to say goodbye to 2014? It seemed like just yesterday, where I was getting ready for DMD. I used Solvang Spring Double as a training ride … what? Then, I did DMD, and they were really tough conditions, and it became too much for me, and I ended up DNF’ing it, only going 159 miles before SAG’ing it.
Then, on the way back from a ride, I didn’t realize how fast I was going, and I rear ended a tandem, taking both of us down, and took me out for 6 weeks, suffering a rib injury.
Ever since then, my fitness was not quite the same, so I then decided to just commute to work every day. No centuries, no doubles for the rest of the year. Instead, I just enjoyed weekend rides, without any training agenda.
Despite all of this, I ended up with quite a bit of mileage over the year. I ended up with 7004 miles. I guess all those commute miles do add up.
So will I do DMD this year? I have no idea … but I guess I should just start training up for it again, just like I did last year. I’m just hoping I have remnants of the fitness I had last year. If I do, then I’ll go ahead and go for it.
Anyhow, Happy New Years everyone.
