Today was the day I've had mixed feelings about for the past week or so... the first lesson of the 2016 season. Ironically this lesson was actually supposed to happen last week however my husband had to have an emergency surgery to remove his Appendix and things got put on hold. No biggie, my local coach is super flexible - we rescheduled for today, April 20th. I've been having pretty great rides at home despite the ridiculous winds we've been battling lately, so I was going into it nervous but also feeling excited and proud of the improvements we've made since I last saw this coach in 2015. Things didn't quite go as anyone expected however I think in the end it turned out even better than anyone expected. As I previously mentioned, I'm very prone to succumbing to negativity and at this point I don't think I would necessarily consider myself 'negative', but rather i'm extremely driven and often don't appreciate the little things.
