Another day of rest before the joy of speed work begins in earnest. I almost put off stretching out today, I had a myriad of reasons, but at the end of them all I realised they were all just excuses.

I'm beginning to think somewhere deep in the dark corners of my brain, I want an excuse to fail. That way I wont have to test my limit, and never face the possibility of coming up short. I hate that part of my brain, but it makes very convincing arguments about "safety", "comfort", "beer" and "nachos".

So right here, right now (I imagine given that you're not standing over my shoulder as I type that you'll have to "adjust right here, right now" to something more like "back then, over there") I would like to state "I will not consume any beer or nachos before the Otway". HA! Take that deep dark place in my brain!

So, who's up for some wedges and cider?

dude, have a baby is my only excuse, as the day for the Otay approaches, and the riding gets harder, I want the little one to pop out... is that whimping out?

I think due to the fact it would be swapping something hard for something possibly harder, it can't be considered wimping out.
