Notes:

  • Another week of shitty training. No consistency. Worked a shit ton and devoted my energies to the education and preparation of coffee, distributing, measuring, being meticulous in my approach as I talk, prepare, and sell the Bean. I don’t race until September at North Face WI so I’m not in a rush. Let’s make it a better week of training on the bike, including my neglected core/hip/glute work. Onwards.

Time to get my ass in gear and focused on grinding UP and building quad strength for Whiteface. I want to be a mountain goat. Onwards.
