I have to really think about how important the next 4 Ontario Cup are to me. I'm racing, no thinking there. I talked to Heather and she has given me the options that I expected.
Here we go, Saturday I take it easy and preride the course a few times and go into Sunday feeling good and try to finish in the top 10. HMMM Sounds good doesn't it. OR option B. Keep training for the endurance side of things (24hr) and do a 4.5 hour endurance ride on Saturday and hope for the best on Sunday. Any thoughts??
Here is an interesting thought to factor in. Last year I finished top 5 every O-cup. All but one I went into well rested. Albion Hills I did a 6 hour road ride the day before and finished 2nd over 2 minutes ahead of 3rd. Hmmm, I am racing in a tougher division this season so I'm not expected as much.
I've been sorta planning now for the second option. If I get down to Mansfield early, like still hearing the birds chirping early on Saturday I can put a couple hours in out on the road then ride the course a couple times to know where the right spot to vomit is. That gives me a pretty good amount of recovery time. 24 hours is all needed right??
Back to my coffee.
