I recently took a look in the mirror, in the bathroom, and look at my mid-section … Oh, the horror! Damn, I have really been lolly-gagging. Crap, it’s time to do something about this.
Well, Camino Real is this weekend, and I know I’m going to miss that. The question is … will I actually be in shape for Solvang next month? I just feel like a real slog now.
So it’s time to get out on the road, and do those before work rides up Mora. Too bad the evening Meetup rides start at 5:15 pm … there is no way I’m going to be able to make it to Los Altos by 6:15 …. probably won’t even be able to leave the building till at least 5:20 pm. I think that definitely is hurting me, because I don’t have that motivational group leaving every Tuesday evening.
It does help that it is not bone chillingly cold out there, so I can actually wear shorts and short fingered gloves. That definitely helps, as I feel a little faster without the long fingers and the knee warmers.
Of course, this month didn’t help me much either. One weekend, visit my dad … the next weekend, on call. That is really going to hurt my training schedule.
