Just 99 miles to go

Sick or just tired?

Didn't ride tonight and now I feel guilty as shit.
Thought I'd relax a few minutes on the couch before heading out.
Thats turned into a nap and afterwards I was still having a little nausea.
1 extra day of rest is probly good for me.  I'd ridden 5 of the last 7 days.

I've officially set a goal for the SM100.
Under 12.5 hours.
I've got the fitness, training, and the bike for abuse the body will take from the descents and rocks.
What I don't have is the endurance to push the pace up a little from my finish in '09 on the flats and ascents.
I'm hoping that trying to lower my saddle on the singletrack climbs will keep me on the bike a little longer.
I keep thinking back to 09 and trying to figure out where I could have shaved time off.

Still more than 30 days to go.

You got it man. I'm getting tired of riding. Been lacking on the blogage as well.

I'm not that bad, yet. I was looking forward to getting out, just tired.
If I'm too tired to ride when I want to, I know I need a rest. Now I am getting tired of trying to come up with long weekend rides.
