Provincial ITT champs are only 6days away.....

And I feel like its going to be nothing to write home about, so i guess i'll simply blog instead.
Spent a very wet and windy weekend in the woods next to a lake this weekend (last of summer).
Unperturbed though i headed out on the bike to try to get used to the Time trial position. I knew i was going to be in for a rough ride when I was quickly heading up hill at nearly 50kmph.
Mostly due to the gusting 40kmph tail wind i was going to have to face on my return trip.
The pouring rain and sketchy roads made it interesting, but not as much as crossing the many rickety train lines dissecting the roadway at obtuse angles. If you don't know, metal train tracks and wet weather don't mix to well at anything other than 90 degrees. Having you rear wheel slip out nearly a foot from under you can be a little disconcerting, but no harm no foul I guess.
anyway after a month of heavy construction work my back really is not enjoying new super aero position and after 40mins was killing me. I guess most my training this week will consist of stretching.

Anyway mostly i'll be using the whole experience for learning, and for trying out my new skin-suit and aero helmet....stylish.

good job i'm ramping up the commitment to off season dieting....
