WHEN I'M IN THE ZONE I LIKE TO GROOVE TO THE SAME SONG OVER AND OVER.  But, no headphones on the bike for me.   It's in my head.  Loud!

At work  this morning it was I Want You (She's So Heavy) by Los BayAhtLays.  Over and over and over.  

Was it because Coach Loran's video #6 destroyed me hours earlier?  So much balancing with a heavy focus on shoulders... 

... staring at the red blossom in my backyard, on 1 leg, bent over, doing reverse flies with weights my shoulders were firing.  But, I didn't let go even as the weight got heavier and heavier...

... all the while Loran is whispering Fnd your focal point.  

I was reminded of the power in having distant focal point again this evening... we were ripping single track on the gravel bikes and this trail had a number of skinny bridges - pic of one above.  

If there's one thing I've learned...

... do NOT...

... under any circumstances look at the bridge itself as you ride across...

...or worse...

... the perilous threats off the sides...

... panicking and crashing are nearly always the result.

Like Coach Loran's video #6, finding a focal point beyond the challenge is the proven path to success.

If you're into that kind of thing, then maybe you'd be into the PEDALposse.
