yesterday i rode in wildwood and hit a few of the tough hills. i'm not joking when i say that i was crawling up the climbs. it was really odd. today, i rode again, and just to punish myself for yesterday's horrible performance, i rode twice as long and hit twice as many hills.
i'm going to go out on a limb here. i'm not right just yet. it's been an eye-opening experience to ride a bike and feel like a beginner again. i am not going to be stupid and say that i am completely recovered from "the pancreas incident". in fact, my body is telling me that i've got a long way to go to be normal. it's depressing because this was the first winter that i haven't suffered a lot from my typical sinus infections, and i was able to get in those consecutive days of riding in vegas.
i don't know what to say. i'm guessing that i'll just have to see how it goes for a while, and take the races off of the calendar until things come around. i think i might start the tuesday night worlds next week, but i would hate to get out there and just not be able to do it.
