Got to the gym a few days ago and felt really, really tired and unmotivated…possibly because I didn’t get enough sleep. I’ve got to stop this pattern if I want to ride. I’m hoping that having a trainer and a training plan will help with the motivation issues, but some part of me really just wants to sleep in, forget about the ride, and not go out this year. Nonetheless, I plan to go on training.
Good news on the training front: my cycling coach from ALC2 is willing to help! He hasn’t got time to coach me right now, but he’s put me up at the top of his waiting list, and he’s putting together a set of exercises for strength training, that will hopefully keep the knee from relapsing again. I’m really hoping he finds the time to coach me…that would be most excellent!
And I am thinking more and more about tutu ideas. (Because it’s not a ride, dahhling, it’s a fashion show!) I have ordered a few more brightly-colored cycling jerseys and am thinking of knitting a tutu out of some of the more outrageous yarns! I have to think about it–if the yarn is too heavy, the tutu won’t stay up properly. Perhaps I need to knit a test tutu. 🙂
I’m leaving tomorrow for the East Coast, so no training notes (and probably no blog updates) for a week and a half. I wonder if there’s be snow?? BRR!!
