CURRENT EXCITEMENT:I will not be prepared for, but am excited about the and the double weekend.Connecticut and Rhode Island, states #28 and #29, October 12/13.I don't advise cutting back your training before a double weekend, but we'll see how it goes.A double deserves its own weeks of training, but it didn't work out in my schedule very well this year. Three races in August kind of kicked my behind.
