Really, we’re into a new decade? I guess so … 2020 … wow, it was just yesterday when they were concerned that the world would end due to Y2K. Now really, did anyone really think the world would end? Nature finds a way … hmm … sounds like a quote from a movie … Oh, because it is … Jurassic Park.
Anyhow, in past years, I would refrain from doing any type of new year’s resolutions, but this year, I wanted to do something different. Last year, I didn’t have time to train for any events (being on call every other weekend). That sucked. So this year, I said to myself, screw it. I’m going to sign up for an event, and no matter if I’m ready or not, I’m going to do it. So I signed up for Solvang Double Century in March. I’ll have to make sacrifices, like ride into the darkness after work (and have no relax time at night), just so that I can have training time. Who knows … maybe I’ll ask to work consecutive on calls, so that I can have consecutive weekends to train.
We’ll see how that goes. I miss my double century friends, and the feeling of doing a double century … I gotta do it. Wish me luck. It’ll be one way to start off the decade.
Oh, and I didn’t do quite as bad as I thought for the year, even though my weekend suffered. I still got over 6,000 miles for the year.
Let’s see if we can improve upon this in 2020.
