"nothing ventured nothing gained"

... and... "for every proverb there is an equal and opposite proverb". This one for example:
More Haste Less Speed
As you know we are speedy by name, speedy by nature. Haste is the enemy!

My word for the month of October has been the word "precautionary". The precautionary action I have taken is to not race until my training comes up to speed again. That is why you see me lurking sullenly around race venues and not competing. That is why I am absenting myself this Sunday morning, I don't want to be tempted to participate, not quite yet.

But the time is not to far away when today's heading will become applicable again.
