Physical and emotional struggles on the bike

I think I’m coming out the other side. I’ve only ridden a few hours each week since August 1st until this week. Somehow I spent 12 hours ripping or noodling around. Also, I got talked into a race at the end of September. Just a couple crits in SoCal but, the important point is I’m looking forward to them. Will not start a new training cycle on the bike until Nov/Dec though…

Any updates @timnorman ?
