Oh wow

Dang. Sincerest apologies for not posting. To be honest, it has been pretty difficult to have any positivity towards racing and training at the moment. Primary reason is lack of competition. Anyone who is really competitive with me is away racing in Europe, and I'm stuck at home.

Exhibit A - Results from this past weekend.

Calforex Cup #5, a "local" race held in Camrose, Alberta. It was Western Canadian Championships, but the Senior Men's field was slim. It was pretty hard to motivate myself for these races. I didn't slack, but I didn't really race. There is an extra 5-10% that you can physically give in a race that moves you from "a comfortable pace" to feeling some hurt. I shied away from the extra hurt. Just didn't seem worth it. Clearly wasn't necessary. I'm Western Canadian Champ now, BTW. Woot.

This weekend is a race in Hinton, Alberta. Provincial Championships. Same level of competition, but I am going to race myself. I need to push it into the hurt zone. It's more mental than anything, and I need the practice.
