Great essay John. Brought back fond memories of visiting Melk on the road between Vienna and Salzburg (but I must admit, I was driving a car.) The quote from Cormac McCarthy is beautiful and timely as he died yesterday. I am inspired by your consistency at both writing and training.
John - I loved every bit of this! So glad you weren’t there last Friday so we could see pictures of where you were!
Man John, I marvel at how similar we are. I'm also a long-distance cyclist. Max distance of 110 km a day.
Even both my parents are long distance cyclists. They cycle 40 km EVERY DAY.
(I heard you're also a tall guy...)
Can you elaborate on that lone wolf vs team point that you were talking about? I'm a lone wolf now, but I don't see it as a bad thing. I need to know if I need to reflect and change!
Great essay, John.
Had you read the news about Cormac McCarthy's passing or is that a strange coincidence?
This sounds like such a wonderful trip. Years ago, I cycled from Prague to Vienna with friends. It ruined me for any other type of vacation besides active. Now, you've caught the bug!
Super inspiring John. I love the 80% target on mastery. It's like the opposite of the 80/20 rule. 99% of the pleasure comes from 80%. of the proficiency.
