There is no hiding on this one. I either do the work and perform, or others who did the work will show the World that I did not. Simple, but entirely motivating for me. I have been paddling, riding and running with amazing consistency.
I have also been finding speed secrets. I started using a surf ski instead of my glass tourer...and picked up 15% to the average speed. I am back to cyclocrossing where I used to mountain bike since the mountain bike portion of the race is pretty tame. I guess the running is just running, but my Avias make me feel like I can run faster and jump higher.
I can't, but it doesn't matter. I am motivated and in shape!
