I’m off to a track school in two weeks on my new bike… Frankly, I’m spooked… I have moments when the last thing I want to do is get back on that thing… But I really enjoy riding, so I do… And part of the issue is that I’m pushing myself so that I get back to some semblance of my prior ability before I go to school, which I really shouldn’t be worrying about…

Its a school, not a race, but I keep thinking that I have to perform well for some stupid reason…

I really just need to relax and ride…

Nice thing is that the bike is in the shop for its 600 mile service, which was something that kept me from making a lot of trips I wanted to take… I had to pass on doing some things because they’d leave me hundreds of miles from home when the service came due…
