If you've been looking at the dollars saved on gas tally over there---------->
you might have noticed it hasn't moved this week.
Well if you must pry...
Until today the weather's been okay, the lights are charged, but I haven't been able to drag my assos out of the warm comforts to face the darkness. Maybe it's the lingering cold? Maybe it's a physiological adaptation to the changing seasons? That might explain why I'm eating like a bear before hibernation.
Any way you look at it my September tally will be rather pitiful.
I also hope I don't fall into the obsessive cyclocross trap I did last year. I missed a lot of good Autumn riding "practicing" for cross.
Just for fun, remember?
And on that note (I hate when people start a sentence with a conjunction!), I hope next week's CX practice race doesn't get rained out. I want to try my tubeless setup at a lower pressure, as the tread selection there seems far superior for all but smooth hard pack than my tubulars. I like my tubeless wheels better too, as they are stiffer (I don't like that the are heavier but c'est la vie). I also want to buy some surveyor flags and set up some tight corners to practice on.
Hopefully I can move up to a solid "middle third" finish!
Did you see how I cleverly made roundabout excuses for Tuesday's lack luster performance, without blatantly saying theses are the excuses for why I sucked so bad?
