Luxury Of Time
But I’m not worried. Unused vacation time is my trump card. I will be on vacation all of next week, I have a four-day weekend planned for Thanksgiving, and I still have two weeks to schedule. If push really comes to shove, I’ll drive myself to a place with warmer weather and reach my goal there.
For financial reasons I would prefer to reach my goal closer to home, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the familiar roads and trails of Washington County. I don’t feel like I’ve gotten my money’s worth from my state trail pass, so next week may include a long rec trail adventure.
The remainder of this week looks dreadful. Tomorrow and Thursday are probably off days due to rain and high winds. That leaves Friday for a final pre-race workout … hopefully. The current forecast is favorable for Saturday’s cyclocross race at Doyne Park in Milwaukee. Originally the race was to be held at Kletzsch Park in Glendale, but a scheduling conflict within the county parks department forced the race to relocate.
