COTA motivation thread for June track day with Ridesmart

Yes it was amazing to see the pro racers...yes it was fun to run into people we knew...but...as I looked at that track all I could think was...

....wow, we need to get ready.

It looks tough, pros said it's tough. And it's going to kick our rears if we aren't ready for June. So, I'm starting this thread hoping that some of us can either get together virtually (meaning here) or in person so we can be "doin' it and doin' it and doin' it well". (couldn't help the reference, extra credit if you know what it is).

This thread will probably get dropped for one that is better organized but I'm figuring we can share here our progress on getting ready? Maybe hearing what the Smiths are doing will make us realize we need to try to keep up.

I'll start (in the next post...)

(BTW, sharing this on other forums too since there are riders from all over going and we ALL need to be ready!)

Rode bicycle to and from work, seven miles each way. Not much, but a start. Have soccer tonight too...didn't know until right about now. Great. (I'm glad I didn't know, would have chickened out on the bike ride) Going to do arm exercises with bands while walking dogs.

keep an extra $500 or more around and hope someone's plans change...they likely will, but it also may become a bidding war for spots (so it will likely cost more than $500...the spots were originally $460)

Riding is great but you have push hard enough to get your heart rate in to the 140's to really get some benefit.

Okay, now that it's over, going to admit that I didn't exercise much after all. After Paul's breaking hip on bicycle story (he was the guy looking for a rider for his bike), Rod convinced me to stop riding mine. But, I did stretch after sessions and massaged my legs, and I think that helped. Didn't feel any extra stiffness yesterday, ando not this morning after all either. Going to bring yoga mats with me for classroom floors from now on.
