Because of other commitments coaching soccer is limited to two days a week working with the keepers. That's fine for all concerned. Keepers don't usually get much training and the three at the high school are eating it up.

A good ride that had a shaky start. The desire to ride was not there at the start. That's happened before and as usual, things began to kick in nicely. During the college years when road running was part of the off season training, doing math problems mentally would help the miles pass unnoticed. Today was a few other things that got me into the riding zone. There was a pretty long gradual climb on this route that I was dreading enough to consider changing the route. During this ride while the mind was wandering, I settled on a disturbing thought. I couldn't shake it and it was actually getting me angry. So angry that I was huffing and puffing on the verge of yelling obscenities at my mental foe. When I finally snapped out of it I realized that the huffing and puffing was not my anger, but the hill I had been dreading. Sort of like highway hypnosis, but on a bike. I had climbed that hill without even noticing I was doing it. It was just as difficult as ever, but evidently, I slept through it.
