Yesterday I finally made it out to the velodrome for a race. It was the kilo individual time trials and I was in no way ready for it. I haven't been riding much and I haven't been out to the track since the cyclocross race. I bought some cheap pedals to put on the bike (my old ones were on the John Deere) at about 4pm on the way to pick up Etta. I managed to get a decent warm up in before hand but the eighty gear inch was way more than I'd been used to. I started out pretty strong and felt really good for the first two laps. The third one hurt and the last one was just vicious. I over heard the announcer saying something about the monkey on my back. My time ended up at 01:29.90 which was only slightly worse than the 01:29.79 that I turned in last year.
