For the past two months I have been training for the upcoming Conquer the Coast in Corpus Christi. I still have one more week of hard cycling then a final week of easy riding till the event on September 19th. As of now, I feel I’m ready to do my metric century but I want to be more than ready for the event. I’d rather be over prepared than under prepared.
This is the second time doing this event and I hope to finish it faster than my first time. I’m pretty sure that will happen, but you never know. I got some new tires put on so I don’t have to worry about blow outs. I just hope the weather is good. The last time I went, the 20 milers got dumped on with a ton of rain (but I think they still had a blast) and the 65 milers got some light sprinkles.
I was supposed to be training with a friend of mine but she ended up breaking a toe and ended up in a cast. The cast doesn’t come off till the day before of the event, so maybe she’ll go to give us moral support! I will miss her on the ride, but there are other events later this year that we can go to, so I’m looking forward to that!
