20 days to Hanoi!!!
The clock is ticking, and there are only twenty days left to get into tip top gazelle like peak physical condition. October has been a great month of training, everyone has really stepped things up. My Goal was to ride four days back-to-back this week, but I am not feeling well today, so a day off and blogging will replace riding this morning. I did my first double loop three weeks ago -- and I struggled!!!!! I think I slept all day recovering from the experience. After a few more tries I have conquered the double loop! I am still scared for the ride, but not as terrified as I was after my first attempt. Tomorrow I will attempt my first triple loop of the parkway which is about 90k.... hopefully i'll live! A few of us are heading up to Dalat Monday night. It will be good practice for the hill section of the ride. More importantly it will let me know a little more about what I am up against. I am expecting to return from the trip with a broken spirit, but that will only be temporary as the excitement is building. We have a great group of riders this year. Riding and spending time with one another for an entire month will be unforgettable. I cant wait to get this show on the road!
