How bad do you want it?February 15, 2012
Winter training has been going as expected. That is long, miserable, but quite well! Riding the trainer watching the same movies or TV shows is mentally exhausting, especially when you’re just about to fly south to a warmer climate. Sometimes I wish I was an American citizen so that I could go to university in the south and avoid all of this entirely. Or maybe it would be nice if Harper invaded the Caribbean instead of protecting the North (As a Canadian I’m actually glad he’s fighting for the North, however half-decent job he’s doing at it)
Putting politics behind me, it has been a long two months up until now and I’m happy to be putting some of this basement scenery behind me.
I am Cali bound this coming weekend to attend a Team Ontario training camp. These are always good people to be around and ride bikes with, a lot of memories from past years. Looks like a week and a half of fun in the sun riding the roads around Oxnard. I spent last year’s reading week in the same place watching the surfers every morning ride some, pretty impressive, big waves followed by a long ride in the mountains around Oxnard. Looking forward to it again next week.
Although I don’t get to ride my mountain bike during this camp, I do have to bring it because I’m flying to Austin, Texas afterwards for the Mellow Johnny’s US Cup. I just a lengthy 3D BG fit on the bike that I’m confident in and I’m excited to get my first race in on the new whip. It is an early start to the season and I’m expecting too much out of the race after a weeklong camp. But it will be a good test to see where everything’s at.
But before I leave I have a 2 labs and a project to hand plus my only midterm this semester, all in the next two days. So I should probably be doing some of that right now.
Stay Classy, the world
