'Cruit Beginner

I'm all signed up for the Time Trial today and the epic battle of Bigun vs Excel-Man aka M-Gel. This will be my first time amongst a bunch of "roadies" and doing a dedicated time trial. I'm excited and looking forward to the event.

I had to call the shop to make sure they would fix my bike before I registered. We'll see if it's ready this morning. When I registered, I had to buy a $10 one-day cycling USAT-like licence thingy....and I felt like a newbe. I've got so much to do today work-wise - I'm sure I'll be hammered before the thing starts tonight. I had one of those nights where you can't sleep because you're thinking of useless crap all night. So not a good night of sleep.

But so what, it's a training event really - this whole week is just a step up in the training hours. If I get it all done, it should be one of my longest weeks. 12:18 is my best so far, with a 12:13 and 12:10 as close second efforts. Gotta start some time. Like now...
