If you are to fast for your wife or girlfriend I suggest going single speed its a great way to keep things even.
Well I have maybe one more marathon event before that's all she wrote. I am starting to shorten up the rides and add some intensity to get prepared for the cross season. I have been running all summer, but its time to put the intensity in their as well. My brain definitely got cracked at the 24-9 I have the physical ability, but my head is out of it. I think when you put all your hopes and goals into a race and then it goes bad it really crushes you mentally or at least it did me. I am just trying to ride with my wife, get some fun back in it and get ready for the next round.
