|red shoes rule!|
After a hard week of training in Athens at mom and dad's house I was back on the road again. I Friday afternoon just in time to get in a good preview of the course. After a nice dinner and some Graeters Ice Cream it was back to the hotel for a long night of no sleep. Not sure what the deal was...but maybe I was just pumped to race...or too much Ice Cream.
Day 1 was a world of pain. I dangled off the back of the lead group for way too long. I was suffering, I wasn't comfortable at all, my HR was pegged, I couldn't see straight, my legs burned....yeah it was one of those races, but somehow after a mediocre start in about 15th after the first sandpit I moved up throughout the race and finished with a strong attack on Allen Krughoff from Boulder to finish 8th.
Time to go rake some leaves! Before Iceman we scraped, sanded and painted our garage and I went pretty good! So I'm thinking working around the house good for the form....Andrea might like this new training plan!
