Ah, night cross which shredded my seat post on Saturday night and created the following days slow fallback was about as good as it got this past weekend. I must say that I have enjoyed the cross series so much this year. First because I actually have done the races that I set off to do. Second because I have not completely fallen into the abyss during the season and dropped out of the series, even though it has been close. I feel this past weekend was a reduction in fitness to get ready for Herman's State Cross Championship. I will be training for the next two weeks to up my game.
Um, yes, here is something quite pleasing about finishing one of these heinous events. Has a lot to do with embarking on something and having the conversation with a fellow masochist afterwords about the experience, what was learned about how deep you dug. I can't think of any other way to describe the freaking pain, other than it is accompanied by humiliation most of the time. And a smile.
