|You might give it everything you've got and still be stopped.|
It’s time to look forward, though, not back to what might have been. Week 9 is the beginning of the “home stretch.” Longer hours in the saddle and more challenging intervals await. And there will be more to Week 9 than just training. I have volunteer work to do for Team Pedal Moraine and I have to finalize preparations for Cheesehead Roubaix, including road painting. And there’s still the not-inconsiderable task of finding the right mountain bike for the upcoming season. I must make some progress on that front this week. Add it all up and Week 9 will be busy ... uncomfortably busy if the weather doesn’t cooperate.
