After much discussion with the Gods, Gurus, Sages, Yogis and the other very sound minded people, I have decided to mount an assault to attain another Knighthood in this realm on 25/May/2024.
I know what y’all must be thinking, that’s 6 months away! Yes, I am aware of it, but I think I need that amount of time to drafting a proper attack plan due to some niggles with my enemies. As Lao Tzu once said:
If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.
As for now, I have mustered up my play list, but the order and intensities are still pretty much tentative.
That is the opposite of my approach. Maybe that’s cuz I’ve started out hot on one too many big rides and suffered the consequences of late stage struggles. Now, I make every effort to NOT burn the matches too early. But hey, you do what works for you, Sir. This won’t be your first rodeo
We are all guilty of that. My most recent one was the L’etape ride back in July, where I ended up with cramps at least thrice and that was despite replenishing my salts on a regular basis. Haven’t had that sort of cramp in ages.
Time to get to some meticulous planning again in the coming weeks.
The irony of planning one’s own suffering.
