I really need to ride the course so I can determine whether the hills are going to do me in. That is the one thing I am really worried about. If the course was mostly flat I would do it without question. Unfortunately, I've been told there are several hills that are quite challenging. Maybe I'll ride down there this weekend.
I did go to the gym this morning and did strength training. It was a struggle though. A HUGE struggle to get out of the bed this morning. I just wasn't feeling it. I got to the gym 15 minutes later than normal. I didn't slack off though. I did my entire workout.
