Flying solo...

I think I might be a loner.... my own company suits me just fine lately. A friend of mine, Andrea, was up from Sydney on the weekend and stayed a few nights so she could ride the 'Loop the Lake' event. It was cool having her here, but even though we get on great and are on the same twisted wavelength, by the end of the weekend I was happy to be on my own again. Nothing to do with you Andrea! Also I've been thinking the best way to race the Working Week Series 8 hour races coming up is 'solamente'. Not that my fitness is probably up to it just yet, so I'm giving the 2nd round in Penrose this weekend a miss too. Seems funny, last year Col and I were travelling all over the state following the series, so far this year it's 2 for 2 (absences!). Next round is at my local track though, so I'll be fired up for that one. Scotty and Deano will be flying the Magnets flag again though, they're primed after their 1st round win for a repeat...go you Magnets!
Still trying to shake the coughing bug I've had for over a week now, have had limited time on the bike, I did 30km on Monday which was a struggle, and this morning was even worse....could only manage 20km, and it felt like I was on the tailend of a 150km ride, so slow was I going. As long as I'm better by next week when we fly out for NZ, then I'll be happy. So no road racing Friday nite, and still tossing up whether to do the MTB club race on Sunday...might be better to rest up rather than push it too soon. Wish I didn't love racing so much. Gotta love a sport that makes you look like this...
