life seems to be getting in the way. i had a good weekend of riding, though with daily bike commuting now + personal training + longer weekend rides with fast boys i don't seem to be recovering as quickly.

i had to take a hiatus from bike commuting this and next week...along with working my normal schedule at school i have to finish up my final clinical rotation off-campus. that means 1) i can't ride my bike and 2) i have several 12 hour days in the next two weeks...eeeew.

eddie went out of town this week for his uncle's funeral. i hate cancer.

i actually cannot ride much this week due to my new crazy work hours. maybe that means i'll be somewhat recovered (probably not) for this weekend's race. we were planning on racing co-ed duo in the 12 hour against our really fast friends but now they may want to race as a 4-person team. i actually prefer the duo rather than the 4-person team since i don't know how to ride really fast laps one at a time with 3 hour breaks. i'd rather go out and race for 6 hours and be done but i think they are scared to race against eddie and me ;) haha. the good thing about racing with them is that they and eddie are so fast that the three of them can make up for my slower lap times. i'll be the only one on a singlespeed. i swore i'd never race a SS at conyers again...yet here we are. i am actually pretty nervous for this one!!

i should be working on sponsorship stuff but i haven't had time. i have to be honest, i'm really happy with all our current sponsors (see them on the <---- left side). i have no reason to use anything else as i really do think they make the best stuff. the big question is...what bikes will we be riding? hmm...i know that whatever they are they will be awesome and i will be happy :)

Sorry about Eddie's uncle. I hate cancer too!

Don't worry about not getting as much riding in these days. It's the end of the season! Time to kick back a bit and relax before the training starts all over again :-)

PS. If you race on the 4 person team think of it as good speed work for Iceman (hint, hint!!!).

Isn't it funny how commuting can mess up your training? I thought about it, and I did like 20 miles just in commuting yesterday!!! I like to think it's good for us. :) Maybe not riding will do you good?? I try to tell myself that!
