It’s been almost a month since my last post. I haven’t forgotten about the blog, I’ve just been distracted… by training for the National Road Race!
Okay, it hasn’t been a secret, but I have been very quiet for the last month or so. I’d been so heavily invested in training for what would be my biggest race to date, and anxiety levels so high, that I couldn’t bring myself to writing anything.
Well, that race is now over. We have a new national champion (not me, obviously), and I’ll have to look for something else to keep me occupied on the bike. I’ve been getting a whiff of someone fast popping up in Darwin – this could be the push I need to take it up a level.
Oh, and what about road nationals? Of course I’ll give you a break down of my race soon, and I’ll think it’ll be a short post – I managed just four laps of the course before I had fallen too far behind the peloton and was pulled out. I’m not disappointed, and I did take plenty out of it, but more of that soon.
At the moment I’m still in Melbourne, and soon off to Adelaide to watch the tour down under. And because I got so little riding in during the national’s race, I’m feeling very fresh to push some quick rides.
I’ll keep you posted.
