I'm racing in two days. I'm pumped, and nervous. I have not done any consistent racing in the past couple of years. It is exciting to get back into it and I look forward to continuing to improve.
My best time at the Snake is 3:58, in 2008 on a single speed, that was the first year I started training with HRM. I was not able to beat that time since, even after moving to a geared bike. This is the first time the Siren will be heading down there so I look forward to seeing how things go.
I don't have high expectations though, its been a rough month. Weather, sickness, some weird swelling in hands, knees and feet (possibly a reaction to shrimp). I'm just going to go out and have fun, enjoy the ride and the company. After that, who knows, I'll have 4 more weeks of training under my belt for the next one!
