Not to much has been going on since the Louisville race. I have been hitting the training pretty good trying to get out of the rutt I am in. My legs have just felt like dead wood and I think they are finally starting to come good again. We did a couple local races last weekend and they were about 1.5 hours from the house. Got some nice training in the mornings of and then tried to race through it. I raced pretty average and just tried to help the team as much as possible. It was kinda frustrating but I think it actually did me some good as this week I have been feeling much better. I actually rode almost 6 hours on Wednesday! yeah, thats about what I normally do in a week so as you can see I am actually training:-)
I am off this weekend and just been getting in a huge week before the big run of huge races in August. Next week we have Elk Grove which has a 4 mile TT, 100 mile RR and a 60 mile crit. So that will be good for the fitness as well. And I get to ride my super cool new TT bike which I finally got set up. After that the Marion Classic which is a super cool new race and then the big daddy in Crit Nats. So hopefully I am on the up and up and will have a good August.
Just a quick note to let everyone know that since my father passed away our family has been trying to get his foundation up and running. We have finally got all the kinks worked out and have fully launched what we hope will be a huge success. This is something I have been wanting to get going for a while and I am super stoked its finally a go. We are going to be doing some really cool events and things to raise money and are always up for ideas. So feel free to post em if you got em! for now you can check it out at www.ftafoundation.org make a donation! it will make ya feel good:-)
till next time,
