Well… that was a beating.  First lap got caught behind some silliness, had to dismount and run up the hill 2x, on the 2nd occasion, my Bianchi took the opportunity to throw its chain and all said and done I lost a whopping 2 minutes dealing with that fiasco.  As “slow” as I am… I don’t need any help going slower!! LOL!

My legs were pretty much shit, on top of it all as well.

Like I told coach Christina on Training Peaks today, however… even though I’m sucking, position wise I am actually stronger than last year.  There are some elements of the race course that I just flat out couldn’t do last year and I’m able to do them this year.

We’ve got the FWCX up this weekend… If I can get some sleep tonight I’m going to be ready to roll!
