today was th belterra circuit race. 2mile loop with 2 climbs with 45min of racing(8laps). warmed up for 15min and then it was on. this was insane. i think there were at least 40-50people and i finish somewhere in the top 20. almost got dropped early b/c everyone took offlike they were shot out of a cannon. by the middle of the first lap i was literally the last person until i got my ass in gear. each lap i would drop one group and move to the next. worked by myself for at least 6 of the laps. it was so windy that people were cracking left and right. the fnish was an uphill that i was in a pack of 3 with. i went for it and dropped one of the guys but the other rode my wheel until the last few meters and edged me out. we finished in the 2nd chase pack. had i known how to start this thing i would have been closer to the front and worst case finished top10 in the first chase group. was nervous at first due to all the riders bunched on turns but really enjoyed it and realized i can be competitive in the CAT4/5 group. this was a 45min hammerfest!!!!

brick felt good today. legs were tired once i hit the run but breathing was fine so happy with that. goal is to run 6:30pace at lonestar so today made me feel thats manageable. as for the bike, i want to go 2:25 at lonestar so i will need more effort that what i gave today.
