Thesis, life, and injuries have taken me in a different direction than I had anticipated.
I'm hoping to ride this season, but I'm almost certain that I will not race.
I've begun to start lifting to gain some weight. I'm doing this for a multitude of reasons:
1) I was always plagued by a weak core while riding, I can address this by lifting.
2) I need something to do so I don't go insane.
3) I love crits and if I 'baloon' up to 170 or so at 5'10, I'll still be competitive in the 4's and higher up.
As 3 hints, I plan on coming back to racing at some point, but I'm not sure when that's going to be. It's been months and my knee issues still haven't been figured out at this point. I'm going to try going to a different doctor and see if they say anything different. I'm also planning to amp up my physical therapy a bit, so lets see how that all goes.
For now, this blog will have very little about riding and racing. Instead, more of life, learning, and lifting will be written about.
Talking about writing, I really should finish this thesis chapter that I've been working on forever. I need to turn it in by tomorrow afternoon!
