A good old winter rain storm is raging outside, the wind is gusting to about 30mph, supposed to get stronger as the day goes on.
It is days like today that I decided not to take racing as seriously. I'll probably ride the rollers a little later, but maybe not, and if not, I'll only lament the fact that I didn't get to exercise today. I won't lament that fact that I lost a little bit of fitness.
Interestingly, even though I decided not to "race", I attempted to stick to a more structured training schedule than I have in the past. I succeeded about 80% of the time. But when days like today roll around, I lack the motivation to go that extra mile. And I'm ok with that.
At the same time, I realized I don't like that much structure. I started riding my bike because it is fun. It is a release. I added in the racing/training option to see what I could do. I came, I saw. It is time to go back to having fun.
