How does that saying apply when riding with a head wind?
Today was a good day of training, and I say that because I like hard days!
I'm glad there are people that continually put my abilities in perspective. Being strong at the bike leg of a triathlon is completely different than being a strong cyclist...thanks for the reminder guys ;)
One thing that I realized today was how grateful I am to have friends and family that push me not only to be a stronger athlete, but to be a stronger person. For some reason I come up with crazy theories when out in the country with noone around for miles. Today's theory is that they wouldn't push me if they didn't have faith that I could do it, or get there eventually. If they really cared about me, that is...right?!?!
So THANK you for your faith in me - and I promise I will keep working to get there, even if it takes a while.
That being said - today is a special day because I also have a trivia question. What makes a 3 1/2 hour ride with a head wind both ways better?
Stay tuned for the answer...
