Next eleven days

In the next 11 days I’ll travel 11,235 air miles, that’s a lot of time in an airplane to say the least, so it’s a good time to do some reading and set my cycling goals for '09. This is what I plan on accomplishing before returning to San Diego:
  • Read The Cyclist Training Bible
  • Establish a training schedule
  • Pick two ‘09 races to participate in
i'm liking the new iGoogle layout they pushed out today
