I am peering so intensely ahead these days; shaping my own destiny and by extension that of my family. The ‘next thing’…a.k.a the job hunt...is shaping up very interestingly. Tons truly is happening and I am practicing patience that I truly didn’t know I had. Frankly it’s atypical of me! It’s interesting in that in one hand you want to control your destiny (e.g. have fun, be inspired, work hard and with great people and build something of substance)…in the other hand exists volatile market conditions and prioritization shifts companies are forced to accommodate which are as chaotic as the DOW itself.
But it’s close. I think things will be just fine.
The body too is coming around the bend. I am lusting cross more than you know. OK, you know. Trying to keep it all constrained but I’m busting at the seams already. I am going to continue the long epics peppered with an increase of weekly interval work that will overlay the base…a base designed to have fun, enjoy my mountain bike and keep the pounds off. My weeks of training mimic what I’ve always done, but WAY more mountain bike. Essentially weekends are for massive loads, take the early week recover, Wednesday/Thursday intensity spike then rest before the weekend. and load up again. The closer to 'cross I get, the more the intensity frequencies grow until seeing cross-eyed is normal and being fluid under stress is 2nd nature.
Tick tock tick tock. Gluing. Porting. Ridleys. Thinking. Clinics. Changing leaves. Shorter days. Cooler temps. Embrocations. Commuting.
Soon. It’s all just around the bend.
