Split Personality

I was at Chapin this afternoon with Audrey. after skiing on my old classic skis with Thom a few days ago I found getting into the rhythm of the Skate skis really hard today. V1 to V2, etc. I felt like gravity had increased 100 fold as I tried to climb the lighted trail too. Ugghh!!

Then as I was about to make my last trip on the mile loop I made this subtle little adjustment with my feet and all of a sudden 3 or 4 "bad" things went away and I finally started to climb using the skis and not just my poles. I was so excited I was whooping it up to myself as I skied. Kid at heart thats me.

But all good things must come to an end, even happy emotions. Well, especially happy emotions. I got home to a dinner of apple and cinnamon pancakes and sausages only to realize that I left my skis at Chapin. Back in the van with the empty fuel light blazing. There and back and some still delicious microwaved pancakes and sausage.

Then down to the basement to sort out the fit dilemma of trying to make my TT bike fit and be UCI legal. So a borrowed Fizik Arione Tri saddle goes on and the dance of the levels, allen wrenches and tape measures ensues. Well ,lets say my bike and fit is completely FUBAR right now and my stomach is in knots I am so pissed off right now. I am so uncomfortable that the whole bike feels like crap. And I had it feeling so whicked good two weeks ago.

I need a good nights sleep tonight as I have to get up at 6am to get my exercises, training ride on the TT bike in and get Audrey to swim class. I looked forward all week to this workout, but now with the saddle position and I being at war I dont even want to ride.

Well at least I should be back on my Fischer skis by afternoon. OH-and I am entering a cross country race Sunday too!! Whoo-hoo. A little happy to go with a whole lot of PISSED OFF!!!
