I am board. This waiting around for the time trial is pretty boring. Instead of spending hours each day riding I am spending hours each day trying to find ways to waste time. To you this may sound a little silly. You may be thinking, “You are in Germany after all. Go see and do. Drink beer and eat bratwurst.” This would be all good if I weren’t trying to have the best race of my life on Wednesday. See and doing takes/requires energy. Beer and brats fill you up with unwanted/bad energy. Thus, I am limited to the bed, chairs and the elevator (ok, I take the stairs going down). I wish we could hurry up and race. Get it over with then go home. So, due to the boredom of waiting around for the time trial on Wednesday, I have decided to do a daily blog update of everything I do, interesting or not.
-Had a very leisurely breakfast
-Spent most of the morning in bed
-Drove the TT course (it looks great!)
-Ate the BEST sandwich I have ever had (German brown roll, egg, jam, cream cheese)
-Met Dave Zabriskie (another “real” pro)
-Surfed the Internet
-Drank a cappuccino (not bad tasting for being in Germany)
-More Internet wasting time (shouldn’t I be doing homework?)
-Dinner (pasta of course)
-Learned about time trial bikes from the current World TT Champion, Kristin Armstrong (that WAS interesting).
One down, three days to go…
