YES, YES, YES... it's that time of the year. No matter what, there's no way to skip rides now. The season is on us. The big events just around the corner. Now is when PRs are set, podiums are climbed and the victory we are after makes us do things we wouldn't do 6 months ago.
If it's raining, we're going any way.
If we're busy, we're going early.
If it's hot, we deal with it.
If everybody bails on us, we don't care.
Because we know the competition, be it ourselves or our mortal enemy (so dramatic, I know, but for some that's how it is), might skip it... and just knowing we got it done...
GIVES. US. SO. MUCH. POWER!
... and confidence and fire...
Today, is when our minds get so much stronger. Sure the body will be a little better from the workout, but the mind... oh, the mind... that's what counts today.
I don't mind, if you skip it... if it's too hard... too early... too time consuming... it's okay. You rest up.
I'll be riding.
