Time for a comeback…

Well, if my silence hasn’t been enough of an indication, 40 has been a super busy year. Between work, facilitating training rides as a training ride leader, carving out time for my own training, more work, and a teeny bit of a social life, I’ve been BUSY.

We’re just a few weeks out from this year’s AIDS/LifeCycle, and it seems as good a time as any to crank the blog back up and to continue examining how cycling influences my life.

Right now, I’m in the midst of refocusing on my fitness levels and trying to reign in eating habits that have been affected by the post ride ‘Eat All The Food’ mentality. Yes, there’s a case to be made that the longer rides require more fuel, but there’s also the whole idea of being smart about what you eat before, during, and after a ride. And, ultimately, not feeling like I’ve been stuffed into my cycling gear…

There’s also pretty strong motivation to keep up my current level of riding through the summer, in an effort to step up my speed and climbing abilities for next year…lots to do, lots to do…

But first, I need to make it through this coming weekend’s back to back century rides (and a screening of Serial Mom at the Castro Theater!). Stay tuned for updates…
