Not much really happening at the moment. School is busy. The tt pretty much sucked. 55:05 was my final time. A nice solid 7 or so minutes down on the win. Headwind out, tailwind back. I couldn't get into a rythym or find the motivation to really push. Either way, last skinny tyred race of the season. Not a great way to end, but now its time for some fun and cross. Not riding a tremedous amount at the moment. More riding when the urge hits and riding my cross bike for some general explorations. Spent 2.5 hours yesterday being generally "temporarily misplaced" (we had a general idea which way to point to get home) riding on old gravel farms roads, dirt goat tracks and generally enjoying some sun. Found some pretty cool stuff and had a blast. That is what fall riding is about right now. I don't really have the legs or mental motivation to go out and train specifically or ride a road race (let alone a tt) but cross is motivating me and these random rides are peaceful and refreshing. Who knows, maybe after I get a cross race under my belt things will change. In the mean time, life is pretty stress free.
