A Cherry Piece Of Advice
My brother wins for the best Cherry Advice. I received this in my e-mail this morning ~
Do the 48. You know why.
If you want a challenge, try limiting yourself to one drink and 15 minutes in the hot tub!
He knows me too well :D
The majority says do the 48. I think Jen said it best - "Training plans are there for a reason. To keep you from doing too much too soon."
I have one main objective this Spring...and it it to get to Pac Crest in one piece, uninjured, and in good racing shape. I trust Coach Glen to get me there so I should follow his schedule. I am doing all this training and racing to raise awareness and funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and that has to remain my priority.
Kate summed it up "The bragging rights would be fun, but probably sticking to your plan is what's going to make you a better stronger rider who kicks butt on that 60 mile ride next year instead of chasing behind this year." Booyah!
So, I'm going into this weekend with the 40/6 brick as my priority and Sunday's ride as some fun with friends. I will let you know what happens. I can almost guarantee that I won't be taking my brother up on his challenge :P
