First Time Trial in Some Time

Last year our group didn't run Time Trials. No real reason why, we just didn't. I'm not sure how much I'll run this year as I'll be after more distance than speed, but I decided to show my face at the inaugural time trial for the year.

I was a little disappointed as only four people showed up. I was more disappointed that at four-tee-two (42) years old that I was the youngest there. Where are all the young speedy guys? Do us old people scare you? Are you afraid of being embarrassed? Well, I can understand that. You don't stand much of a chance with Randy R. now coming to time trials!

Not doing this in over a year, I couldn't find that comfortable pace. Although I'm a "decent" time trial rider, I wouldn't call it a specialty by any stretch of the imagination. Looking at my Garmin stats, my mile marks were not very consistent. I didn't run my self to the verge of upchucking either. I'm not sure how often I'll time trial this year as distance will be much more of a focus in preparation for the Gut Check, but I may show up once a month or so to see if I can better the initial time.
