i need to dig these bad boys out of the closet. at least i think they are in the closet. i have got grand total of zero miles on them for 2010.
every year, this very same time of the year, things change. the wife is headed back to work, the kid is starting school & the days are getting shorter. the grind is back in full effect.
in order to deal i bust out the running shoes. running takes up less of my time and allows me to hang onto my fitness a bit longer. i enjoy it, sort of. running and me have an odd relationship. i love the feeling of a great run. gliding, hovering, just above the ground. however, about the time i reach some form of, well, running form, i transition to the trainer for the winter.
cyclo-cross is all the buzz right now with PSIMET Racing. i am sure it is something i would fully enjoy and even be decent at, but time is not going to permit it. it is all about balance.
