This is the farthest I have made it into the week with consecutive workouts in over 2 months. This morning I rode on my trainer to the CTS Mountain Bike Racing video. It is a good workout but it is also a sign of how far I have fallen off even in the last couple of months. I used to be able to ride it with the resistance set higher and at a higher heart rate. Now I feel like I am going to collapse when I finish.
Now is the time of looking forward. Santa is sending my present early this year. I am getting a set of lights, the Blackburn System X6. The point of these lights is to enable me to ride in 12 hour endurance races. I am hoping to keep my training up and actually be prepared to ride a 12 hour race. I do need to sit down and work through what races I am planning on competing in. I will probably should be smarter than to race a 6 hour endurance race on Saturday, an 18 mile XC race the following Saturday and a 13 mile time trial on Sunday. Three races in 8 days was quite fun, but probably not too good for me.

Since I worked out at home, I will not be weighing in.
