It’s raining outside and I am waiting for it to let up a tad before I set out for another day of intervals. OB has started my CX training which means SHORT and HARD workouts. I love it. I’ve dropped 6lbs without even trying.
It’s my week of PMDD and the mood swings come and go, furiously. People tiptoe around me. Dominic calls me “Precious” and “Honey” and “Baby” hoping whatever he says doesn’t ignite a slew of obscenities thrown at him out of nowhere. This shit just gets worse with age too. Damn, it’s a fucking BITCH turning 40. It’s even worse if you’re a female. Thank god for Xanex.
I keep saying I am done with road racing and then I go and commit to another race. Tomorrow starts the Devou Park Summer Race Series. There’s a women’s cat 3/4 race but they kind of throw us in with the juniors. Just like in CX. That’s always fun, trying not to cuss around the kids. It’s even worse when they pass you and say “Excuse me maam”. It’s a 30 minute ballstothewall kind of race. Here’s the description of the course:
The course will be a challenging 1-mile loop in beautiful Devou Park. It starts with a flat straight section before you hit the 180 degree turn to start the decent. At the bottom of the decent you’ll have a sweeping right hander into the climb. The climb itself is winding with some rough pavement. Once you reach the top, it’s a short sprint the last couple of hundred feet to the finish line.
Seriously though? Fuck this road bike. I want to get dirty. I am getting stoked my for second season of CX. My CX bike is going to be out of commission for the next couple of weeks. Dominic is in the process of breaking it down to paint. I’ll have to ride my MTB. I’ve been disappointed in the mountain biking thing this summer. The trails have been closed for so long, the only time we get to ride them is if it’s bone fucking dry. My visions of mud splattering rides across creeks and shit are pretty much dead.
The rain is pretty much done, so I gotta go ride. I’ll leave you with my favorite Motorhead song. Turn this shit up!by
