To those who know me in real live life, I know this admission will be a shocker. But yes, I am a creature of habit. I may have mentioned this in previous posts, but I have oatmeal for breakfast each day, in the same chair in the cafeteria. A hard-boiled egg at 9 to hold me over till my salad at 11, then a walk at lunch. Some might consider this boring, while I consider it efficient!
This can be said, in some ways, about my riding as well. There are just some rides I do every year. The Chilly Hilly in February, the McClinchy mile in March, and, like this last weekend, The May Day Classic, in well, May. I knows what I likes, so I keep doing it.
However, this year I finally figured out why I always feel a little ‘off’ at the end.
