Okutama Trail in the Mists ~MTB奥多摩トレイルな日~

Image

The trail I rode yesterday was the same place I’ve tried once before.

Last time, it was 2months ago and that was hot and dry, almost no wind… such a day
but yesterday, on the other hand, it was totally opposite.

It was not rainy fortunately but
it had been raining since Friday night so pretty wet and very slippery and it was even cold when u go down the hill.

Well, better than too hot and dying under the sun though 🙂

As I guessed it was pretty slippery on the rocks and roots
and it scared me especially on the narrow single track 😦

As a conclusion,
I sucked.

Not only the trail condition but also my tummy condition was just terrible 😦

I was too excited the night before and couldn’t sleep 😛
(“too excited” happens everytime before FUN day!! Lucky me :P)
Then, finally had a couple of hours sleep but woke up with tummyache.

Actually before and after riding I also had diarrhea this time 😦
Might caught a cold huh. Oh well
At least I didn’t need to go take a poop on the trail
so everything was ok though 🙂

Anyway, it’s all my excuse for being sucked yesterday.

Well, I’m complaining a lot this time because I’m not satisfied with my performance

BUT
it was fun I admit

I hated the roots but enjoyed slippery rock section.
I was slow.
Way too slow than all the guys around
and
A lot slower than usual.

I know I could have done much better.

But I could try some section no prob where I had to get off the bike last time.

So, overall it was fun and good 😉

I mean,

you can’t change the weather or the condition.
Just gotta accept what it is
and adapt yourself to the situation
and
Just enjoy!!

なおです。
昨日は、奥多摩へ行って参りました。
5月に死神さんのバースデーライドしたとこ。
自走で上がるから、
前回は、風もない暑い日で登りの坂で死にかけたけど、
下りはまぁまぁだった覚えが・・・。
(とはいいつつ、体力だけはムダにあるから死なないんだけど)
逆に昨日は涼しかったから、登りは余裕だったけど、
下りは前日の雨のお陰で滑る滑る↓↓
根っこにやられっぱなしで、
調子がでるのに時間がかかりすぎ。
ビビりっぱなし。
で、全然だめ :(
前日は久々のトレイルにドキドキしっぱなしで寝れず、
朝はお腹が痛くて目が覚めるは、
ライド前も後もお腹が下るし↓↓
踏んだり蹴ったりで何だか欲求不満で終わってしまった。

でも、ま、こんな日もあるよね。
何せまだまだヘタッピだから、
ちょっとコンディションが悪いと難しい。
お天気も山の状態も、
誰かが変えられることじゃないからしょうがない!
しょうがないから、そういう時もある!!って
割り切って楽しまなきゃだよね。
(全然ビビリっぱなしでそんなこと思ってる余裕なし :D )

でも、そうはいいつつ、
前回来たときにクリア出来なくて降りちゃったとこも、
今回は問題なかったり、
ルーツにはやられたけど意外とロックセクションは行けたり、
結果としては楽しかったなぁ

すごいモクモクの霧の中のライドは何だかキレイで
それも良かったな♪
サングラスさえ曇らなければねw

あーそろそろオークリーのクリアレンズ買わなきゃ!!

さ、来週はシマノバイカーズだよ!!!yeey!!

Ciao
