Going For Broke

Looking over my training log today. The month of May was diasterous. Not enough saddle time. Too much food. A lot of distractions. I've lost an alarming amount of training load. And gained an alarming amount of weight. The fall season is not far away. And I'd like to do the new bike justice...

It's a binary option. Turn up to fall with poor fitness, or rebuild the base over the summer. That means long three to six hour rides in the summer heat. While apprehensive, I'm committed to a loooong difficult summer of training to get where I want to be for fall. Maybe even looking forward to it? Times like these... cycling looks a lot like self-abuse.

I promise not to complain too much.
