Day 549 - Floating On Moonlight and SRAM Force.

August 10, 2014          235.2 lbs

Another week of training, another week of crazy work hours. A far cry from being unemployed at this time last year with a failed GoFundMe campaign and literally wondering how I was going to pay for rent/bills. So what made the difference? What changed everything? No idea.  .  . 

Well, maybe one thing.

As crazy as it may sound, I got sick of being stressed about money and I just stopped worrying. All the sudden, work began to pour in. If you read my last post, you will have read that I am now worried about not having enough training volume to complete the race. 

I am going to make an effort to not worry about anything. Just train as much as I can and do the best I can. 

The Cervélo is awesome however I do not like the FSA brakes that came with it. I'm going to upgrade to some SRAM Force brake calipers. At first I was simply going to change the brake pads, but the issue I have is in what feels like flex in the calipers. The SRAM's are stiffer and more consistent.

 This week was a recovery week so not too many brick's. Making an effort to wake up early and train before working. I did it before my ride on Thursday and felt great for the rest of the day. But then that day turned into 36 hours without sleep again and I spent the rest of the week, trying to recover. Oh well.

 I had a beautiful run tonight at the beach. Super moon lighting the path. Knees and feet didn't hurt too bad and I started to float for awhile. Lost in the rhythm of the cadence and the waves. Even though it was only a short, one hour run, it felt great.

More to come. Until tomorrow my friends.
