I want to go to there.
Trying to stay asleep, a lot of times positive, sometimes not. But if it all is a dream it’s stuck in that world of imagination that we left at some point in adolescence, instead it’s a constant battle to keep balance, trying not to give in to the urges; more food, dessert, beer, intervals. The balance is in there somewhere. When you find it…all the more reason to stay asleep and enjoy the ride your mind is taking you on. That early morning feeling is the best, keeping the quiet close to my chest, happy that my world is silent for another little while and happier yet that at the moment it’s mine, the time is my own for a little while before it becomes everyone else’s. A friend said “Our time is not our own” I’m forever trying to take back a little bit.
Not much to improve on here.
Not quite sure where the balance point is-I eagerly await each ride but know the things I’m leaving behind. Maintenance becomes so much more than cleaning and prepping the bikes-it’s body, mind & psyche. That’s what benefits the most, sure the legs get theirs, lungs too-but the real winner is the head. Riding with focus and some blinders make it fade, tunnel vision for that 80 minute vacation.
When wind and gravel are like mud and snow. Being comfortable at pace is finally arriving 6 weekends into the season. Too many turns to count, as many slippery corners to test your tactical acuity. Mid way thru and we still had 12 guys in with a shot. Shots were fired and damage done. No nose in the wind until 2 to go. Then the hammer was fumbled more than dropped, ok go. Nice drift practice. Win #5, time.
