After what feels like an eternity, the first real races slowly reappear on the calendar. That in itself is motivation enough for me, so I’m not picky about the discipline.
After I tried out time trials two weeks ago, last weekend the national championship hill was on the agenda. It was a bike race on the road, held on a hilly circuit. I was sure it would be more my thing than time trials.
We think that the most important thing in sports (and not only in sports) is to have fun!
That’s why we sometimes do things that may not fit perfectly into the training plan, simply because we enjoy it. Trying something different is exciting, creates new experience and more motivation.
