Just when I started to hit the panic button - Miller gave me the pep talk. The extra miles are going to put me where I need to be for the season, which hopefully will be a dominant local force. Battling the weather and putting in the serious miles will only help my game - and in the long run is what I need to do to get to where I want to be. Luckily I can take the mileage and have the opportunity to train 20+ hours a week.
But it sure is getting nasty out there.
