Greetings Sports Fans! I’ve gone from performance anxiety to race ready and that is a welcomed thing, indeed. How did Iget there?
First of all, I know how to make use of a neglected weight bench. I turned it into a bike stand so I could clean my bike to a state of race ready shiny bright goodness. Observe:
I also looked up how to fix a problem I was having with the chain dropping. I have a triple on that bike and although I do my level best never to use the small chain ring (thereby making me work harder than you people with a compact double and yes – I mean YOU Cheryl 🙂 if I want it I don’t want to fall over because the chain jams between the ring and the frame. So, thanks to the largess of the interwebs I found out how to fix it by adjusting the cable and now it’s fine. Very excited about that!
Tomorrow I will do this ride again:
That ride compares pretty favorably to Oceanside except it’s a little harder:
This will be the 4th or 5th time I’ve done this ride this year and so far so good so I think that means I’m ready. Sunday I run easy for 90 minute and then I will rest Monday, easy spin ride Tuesday, swim easy with a short easy run Wed, drive to Oceanside on Thursday and rock the chaise lounge, pick up my stuff Friday and rock the chaise lounge some more then eat a nice dinner, hit the hay early, get up in the morning and race!
The weather is supposed to be nice. I have a bunch of people doing this with me and I’m trained. I don’t think it gets any better than that.
