Sometimes, nothing works out. This weekend I was hoping to ride well... It didn't happen. After a mediocre Time trial performance, I was dropped early in the Critt and early in the road race. I cannot explain it, this does not reflect how I have been training and racing so far this season. I just had no game.
perhaps a combination of many elements that I have control over. I suspect that there is also something I did not have control over. Despite having not raced much this weekend I slept 11hours last night. To put this into perspective. I am normally incapable of sleeping more than 8 hours and I never, never sleep past 8am. So for me to be out for 11 hours until 1030am is quite out of the ordinary.
Mentally it is rattling to have such a disappointing weekend. I know I am stronger than that, I just can't explain it. and I need to just leave it at that. Move on, look ahead and continue to train.
Training shall be based solely on feel,
while racing shall be guided by sensations and instinct.
