Back in the moto van this weekend and this time I have my own race to look forward to: an hour-and-a-half long Hare Scrambles outside of Dade City.
I’m plugging into my e-stim machine writing this post after enhaling half of a Reuben sandwich from Publix, which I’m excited to burn off in tomorrow’s race. I think I finished second here last year…It’s nearing the end of our racing season since it’ll be too hot this summer to safely compete as temperatures are expected to be in the mid-80s for this first day of spring. I’ve grown to crave going to the Hare Scrambles more than Enduros, which is surprising since I used to prefer the Enduros. But now that there’s more competition in the Women A class at the Hares, it’s a lot more fun off the start mixing it up with those girls and battling back and forth for positions throughout the race. In Enduros, we’re always spread out so we never know how anyone’s doing and it takes a toll after a while; it’s almost a trail ride and you have to constantly psyche yourself up to stay aggresive alone on a trail for miles. Or maybe that’s just me.
The colloquial term “weekend warrior” is used to describe people who compress their activities into long durations on 1 or 2 days/week. Specifically, the term refers to adults who engage in irregular patterns of moderate to vigorous physical activity for more than 150 minutes/week on those 1 or 2 days. 3 Weekend warriors are more often men than women, with an average age of 45 to 64.” – nursingcenter.com article
