Mile shakeout in the morning. Frankly I'm through with solo time trials. Never doing another one again. It just feels pointless now. I thought I was pacing this one better, 1:14, 2:29, 3:46, 5:03, then the fall off began. Closed in 1:15 though, and speeding up didn't even feel that hard. Again, it is infinitely harder to race alone. I'm just quite disappointed that I gained so much fitness this season with a perfect season of training, but I just couldn't do anything with it. I guess I just need to do everything in my power to race every opportunity I get, because there aren't many races to start with. It's just a tough spot I'm in right now. I have high goals for track, and I really for once think they're feasible, but I must not ask myself what I want to run this next season, but what I'm going to do to run those times. And frankly, I will bleed to death if it means I can run the times I want to this season. I'm hungry to start track training after a week off, and I vow to do every single thing in my power to ensure I have the highest quality training this winter and spring.
