Back in the Saddle

Posted by on Sep 19, 2005 in Uncategorized | No Comments

Finally got back out on the bike yesterday. 1.5 hours on the mountain bike, and it felt really good. I think it was just what my heavy legs needed. This week and next week I will get back into the rythm of training before I start to scale it back again for Moab.

I am starting to formulate the game plan for Moab. Deciding exactly what goals I will have, and how best to meet them. Last year’s race was my first 24 Hour solo, and so I had no idea what to expect going into it. I finished 11 laps, which I was pleased with, but I know that with a few minor adjustments I could have done at least one more. This year I think 13 is very reachable, and so that is what I will plan the attack around….although I don’t want to get to locked into that number. Mainly I want to go into the race with a “I am here to race” attitude. I want to push through the no mans land of 1-6 AM where it seems that most people struggle the most. I am really looking forward to that race. It is a HUGE event, and is a blast wether you are racing or watching.

That’s it for now. Thanks for reading.
