Racing & Training
Racing & traning was on hold this month while I recovered from a sprained ankle. Soft tissue injuries seem to take forever to heal. Not easy to miss some of the big races – Boston Rebellion is one of my favorites, and I had hopes of making it to Windham. I took the opportunity to get out on my other wheels.
After a few weeks of complete rest, I was able to get back on the trainer.
With the break in training and racing, I found this an opportune time to start the Beginner’s Clinics Series of rides for Pedal Montclair. I’ve always felt that a series of clinics is a highly effective way to improve skills – focusing on just a few main skills and drilling those into muscle memory. Then building upon that foundation in each subsequent clinic.
Pedal Shop Rides
By the end of the month, I was able to join back in on the Thursday Shop Ride.
