I feel awesome, better than I have in over 2 years. Not so much super endurance awesome, but powerful and more in control of my fitness and diet than I’ve been since my peak fitness. I’ve lost 5 lbs in the last 9 days (including 2 Halloween parties) and I feel as if I can lose 5 lbs this week too. My weight has drifted to a 4 year high and I’ve been struggling with it, but it finally feels like my ideal weight and top form are within reach.
The bad news is most of my working out has been out the back door so not a lot worthy of posting on Ogrehut. The possibility of a pump track for the backyard is very high right now, a tractor is on my list of ‘must buy’ things and if (when?) I get it the pump track will be one of the first things I build.
I don’t think I’ll ever get back into long endurance riding, not that I don’t feel capable, but the more I’ve looked into it the more it seems long endurance type events are ultimately destructive to the body. Longish rides are possible but 24 hour racing seems unlikely unless it’s on a four man team.
