....and counting. Time seems to be going so fast and yet, I seem to be no closer to being "ready". I am realizing that there are few, or at least fewer, gains to be made in strength, fitness, endurance. Where I am now is probably fairly close to where I will be in 60 days. The main goal now is to not lose anything.
I will continue to ride as much as I can on the trainer and, hopefully, outside. I will continue to do some upper body work. I will not obsess, I will not drive myself to the point that it isn't FUN anymore.
My lists grow more detailed and the shape of my travels clearer. More and more, I can picture myself leaving home and traveling to San Diego - everything after that is still a hazy dream. Right now I am not even trying to think beyond the first few days of riding, those days I know I can do. Everything after that will be a new challenge. New hills, new distances, new weather.
I have faced and met big challenges in the past and for each and every one of them I had doubts and concerns. Right now I would be worried if I wasn't worried. Mild to moderate anxiety produces the best performances, I am trying to keep that in mind.
Forward, always forward.
