Cupcakes. I saw a picture of them on the internet and now I want cupcakes.
I can’t will myself to do anything about this tho. I have no cupcakes, and its a trek to find one in Portland I can eat. I’m far too exhausted to make that sort of effort. Its just another post-ride craving, the kind that will come randomly as my body eats and rebuilds itself all winter. In my post-ride haze I think maybe…maybe if I eat a sweet potato while I look at a picture of a cupcake I can fool myself into having the craving satisfied. Nope. Time for a nap.
This is week two of base period. With some of my goals for next year coming earlier I’ve started earlier than I ever have. Being unemployed currently I am adding a few more hours than I going into the 2012 season.
Love/hate this re-starting period. Still so nice to come at home completly empty:)— Zdenek Stybar (@zdenekstybar)
Stybar’s tweet rang true to me. I got a bit spoiled last week with several rides being with others, which help the miles fly by. The last two days were a bit more rough. Solo rides with head winds, shitty drivers, and exhaustion. But coming home empty, knowing I am working towards the endurance that will allow me to compete at a high level next year, makes it all worth it.
