So I am trying to fix my sleep schedule for the start of school on Thursday and its a bigger pain than ever.
I hate trying to fall asleep when you lay there for hours and nothing happens. I feel as though I could be doing much more productive things other than laying in bed, but I must fix it now or I will be dreading my six o’clock wake up call in the morning.
Once that was done I needed to get an appointment for an eye examination for myself and my dad.
That took much longer than I expected because I had to move it from the date I wanted because they wouldn’t have a doctor in that day. That eventually got a fixed date and left me with one more task, which was to contact my coach and chat with him for a bit.
Right after I finished talking with Barney I headed down stairs to the bike room where I had to change out my wheels and put magnets on a different wheel set and get everything dialed in as best as I can before I headed out for my ride.
I had a two hour ride today, but I had some zone five intervals of which I always enjoy doing. I eventually decided I would do them in a mixed bag kinda thing.
One in a very technical neighborhood with lots of different kinds of turns, the next I hit it on a huge hill with a false flat at the top to put a little extra umph into it and the one after that I did going up Main street in Grandview, which is a weird gradual climb that pitches up in a couple of places; nothing too crazy but it was a good place to finish.
When the intervals were finished I was pretty close to the end of my ride. I had about fifteen twenty minutes left so instead of just riding around I headed over to a empty parking lot over by this United building and where they had the yellow lines for the parking spots I did cornering drills to practice my handling. I also threw in a couple wheelies for good practice, I am certainly no expert or anywhere close on wheelies but I’m learning.
