Today is the day. The day I forget about life for awhile. Still, a ton of loose ends this morning but right after lunch I will be headed north for some rest and relaxation. And some skiing.
Some fresh snow has made the trails groomable but I wont be back to do so till Monday. Seems right that we get some good snow the day Im leaving, and when I no longer want it. Looking ahead, it looks like mid to upper 30’s all next week. It is near March. I hope to get the cross bike fired up for some base miles soon.
As crazy as this sounds, and for the first time in well over 10 years, I have not been on a bike in one month.
You heard right.
Its been over 30 days since. That is a personal record. And Im really not that upset about it. Which kinda concerns me. But the crappy or cold weather hitting only on the weekend, and all the new store stuff, it seems almost right. Im going to pardon myself on this one. And when its time, Im going to hit the saddle with a vengeance.
That’s not going to be far away as Im doing the fatbike Birkie in two weeks. That will be an expensive trail ride for me. No way am I in shape to race anything or anybody.
I will go into that race as I do any other. My expectations will be the same. My threefold criteria is as follows: Don’t crash. Don’t take last. Pass someone on the last lap (or near the end).
If I get those issues done its a good race for me. Im easy to please in that respect. Keeps it fun.
The store is ahead of schedule by design, so I can sleep well this weekend.
The fresh snow will make the skiing and hike very nice I hope. Should be a nice weekend between the skiing, hiking, eating and drinking.
However, in the back of my mind is the impending move next Thur\Fri. Its going to be quite a week.
But that’s next week. This is still this week.
Have a great weekend.
