Knowing when to say when
Going back to racing when you haven’t raced in a year is demoralizing. Racing with a category above yours is a whole other level.
Granted, I’ve set some expectations: I won’t be competitive at all. And maybe that’s defeatist, but I’m not going to get my hopes up either just to be let down. As a B racer who hasn’t been racing for a year, racing in the A’s on Zwift, it’s almost comical how not-to-my-par I’m doing.
