Jens Voigt is the Boss!

You know its funny I wake up every morning saying to myself that I am definitely going to bed at eight tonight, and it never seems to happen that way. Its like at some point in the day I say to myself that I don’t want to go to bed because I will have to go to school in the morning.

Oh well what can one do? After my day at school I had an hour and a half on the bike and today I had some intervals to get done.Jens

I had planned on doing them on some good climbs and I had one in particular I was shooting for but I was surprised when I ran into a friend of mine who I hadn’t seen for some time and we got to talking and at that point I decided that it would be good to do them at the end of my ride instead to simulate what it would be like to end a race.

Unfortunately I was greeted by a huge headwind for all three of my intervals, which I hate because it makes you feel slow, but at the same time I love because it turns you into Jens Voigt down the road.

Speaking of Jens the man is an absolute machine I watched him at the US Pro Challenge ride a solo breakaway holding off the peloton for most of the race until the last 2 kilometers, the man is in his forties and refuses to quit regardless of the pain and suffering, what a BOSS!
