Let the waiting game begin. That's the game I will be playing the next few days. Actually, I have already started to play the waiting game. It started Sunday evening and will continue until Thursday afternoon.
Sunday-Wait around all afternoon for bed time. Racing for Nature Valley was over and we had nothing to do until Monday morning when it was time to fly to Bend, Oregon.
Monday-Due to waking up at 5:30am, I had to wait until 9:30 when we could leave for the airport. Wait for airplane. Wait for another airplane that would take us to Bend.
Tuesday-Wait, all day, for my bike to arrive so I can ride. I'm actually lucky my TT bike is arriving at all due to a car accident that involved my parents and a semi. So, with everything being said, I don't mind waiting at all.
What, you may be wondering, is all this waiting around for? US Nationals is this week in Bend. The Time Trial (TT) is on Thursday, Crit Friday evening and Road Race Sunday morning.
I have to wait around for two reasons-
1- it is impossible to fast forward to Thursday.
2- there's not much I can do as an athlete anymore. Hopefully, my hard work was done so now all I can do is perform on race day (thus I have to wait until Thursday to do my "performing").
So, for right now, I'll just keep waiting for my bike and my parents to arrive from Colorado.
