I apologize for getting this post up late. Damiano and I had a great time in Florida, and I am very happy that we went. I learned a ton at my training, and yes I feel like I have a lot to contribute.
Congratulations to everyone who raced at the High School race, and thank you to everyone who came and helped. We are a village of a team and I am honored to be a part of it. Thank you everyone who supported us and helped this weekend. The only way we can do it, is a village, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!
With the High School season being over, THE 2014 ROAD RACING SEASON STARTS THIS WEEK.
We are going to take the long view now, we do not start racing until February 1st. We have some great work to do to be ready, and having the time to prepare is awesome.
Everyone, if you want a great road race season, it starts now. I am planning the season, now. Be consistent, do the little things, trust the training, go hard when you are supposed to, go easy when you are supposed to. We have the time to properly right now, but we have to do everything possible to stay on task. If you want a great season, then may it start today.
To get ready and to relax from the efforts of these past few months, we are going to have a recovery week.
All practices this week are recovery/ endurance road rides.
On Wednesday I will have a 4:30 start as well. So on Wednesday there are two different practice times. 3:45 and 4:30.
