Some days you’re the bug!

August 30, 2015

Yesterday I was the bug! The bug that gets hit by the windshield…. It was a hot day here in SoCal temps topping 90+ and the guys were not backing down from putting it to me. Yeah, I guess I had it coming. After the weeks of me putting the hurt on them it was my turn to try and suck wheel…. but that is another story for another day.

This day was about surviving and then trying to figure out why it turned the way it did. Long story not quite as long. I made it through and finished with a few good PR’s on Strava.com a time good enough for a cup (but I had already been faster) and just a great day with the guys.

Now 24 hours later I can ask – what happened? Was it the lack of sleep this week from traveling for work to Vegas. (yes there was work that was done there) Poor diet of eating out? the 18 hours of drive time this week sitting on my ass? or just the lack of good quality training? well, what do you think? I’d say all of it – but I’m ok with the day. There will days when you get popped of the back and are the bug. Just be glad you’re out there and realize that even the pros have bad days. Of course their bad days are better than our best – but that’s cool.

Just enjoy your rides and think about why they turned out as they have so that you can be ok with the times you get to spend. each one is really a gift.
