Goings on and guilt.

I'm currently buried in a pile of schoolwork and punctured bicycle tubes.

I'm riding the Six Gap Century in Georgia on Sunday and I'm a little worried.

You see, this is what my training has been like as of lately:

Pretty solid.  Yet, this week I'm lacking motivation.  My legs and arse still hurt after Sunday's ride.  I didn't ride yesterday and I'm not riding today, hence the guilt.  I still consider myself a rookie cyclist, so I don't know where to draw the line and let my body rest or push it a little harder.  For now, I'm resting.

I plan on riding tomorrow with a group.  We're doing two hours moderate with 4x10min rotation with 10 min. rest.  That's what the email said anyway...

This is the plan:

Wednesday:  moderate two hours
Thursday:  easy, short spin (to the massage place for a discount rubdown)
Friday:  Off/Driving to Georgia
Saturday:  easy spin

In other news, I got an incredible flat on my commuter bike yesterday.  I was riding home from school and could feel something sticking to my tire.  Well, I got home and saw this guy:

Oh, and I tried to go surfing when I last visited my family.  I didn't really catch any waves because they were so puny.

That's all, Folks.  Send me good vibes for the Six Gap.
