When does a groove become a rut?
Over the last few months my patterns of day-to-day have taken on a momentum of their own. I didn’t even see it at first, but bit by bit it started to happen.
This year puts me another year closer to 35, and if my goal of turning pro is going to be realized then I need to keep improving my game.
With Spinney’s help I’ve got more mileage and better fitness than I’ve ever had for February, and I’m heading down to train at a roadie camp in South Carolina for a week. I suck at road racing, and my road riding skills are little better. Sure, I can ride in a straight line and keep the bike relatively upright, but I never got the hang of crit racing and climb about as slowly as you’d expect for a man of my girth.
Really I’m doing this to re-learn the balance of my life. I’ve gotten this far with a certain level of commitment and now I need to take the next step to keep improving.
Finding that difference between enough and too much is something we all struggle with- just ask this guy.
