so true. I can do a half marathon one weekend, a short triathlon the next and feel fine. A week later Im only good for 40 miles in the desert and can hardly walk for 3 days. NO-THING will train you up for racing other than racing. Nothing works your body like that. I even tried to replicate some racing type stuff in exercises I do at work and it doesn't help....

You are going to get tired, frustrated and possibly injured.
true again. if I had no life, I would be a much better motorcycle racer!

and you're advising someone to abstain from alcohol??

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
