Some days it is so hard to come up with a title for my posts. Hence, the lame title for today’s post. But in a way it is applicable. Today has been pretty smooth. Actually a fairly standard Monday for Belgium.
Work. Ride. Errands. Work. And very soon bed.
Got in an excellent ride with Ed today. We had no fixed plan – just 90 minutes at a good pace. Set off, noodled around Aarschott and Rillaar. Made our way back to the house – a bit gritty but definitely satisfied. Decent riding weather today – light rain and 10 celsius. (No snow for us!)
Not much else to report really. Went into Antwerp to hit up the Decathlon and Saturn. Didn’t buy much of anything of interest. Now just chilling out and doing some more work. About to shut down for the night. Yoga on the agenda and then some quality time with my book.
Watched the women’s race at Nommay while eating supper – thanks to Cycling TV. A pretty exciting race. Impressive riding by Compton and Gould especially. Zolder this Friday. This will be my first World Cup. I have no idea what to expect. I’m approaching it like any other race. Pre-ride. Warm-up. Eat the same as usual. Stay relaxed. Focus on the start. Have fun. Should be good. Pretty decent way to spend Boxing Day.
Okay, I’m out. Have a good one. Don’t know if you’re on Facebook or not but Jos has posted a bunch of photos from Scheldecross. (I’ve yet to look at them all – I will do it later – I promise!) But if you are on FB – go take a look – and leave a comment! Have a good one. Oh, and if you’re close to a Sbucks – have a grande, non-fat, no foam, no water, tazo chai for me…
