I have trouble saying “no” to myself. I don’t have time to be idle. I don’t want to miss something. Choosing rest over a mountain bike ride was a VERY tough decision today. My rational brain tells me training without adequate rest is inadequate training. Quality over quantity. I know. I KNOW, I KNOW, I KNOW.
If I know the rational decision it the best decision, why am I so upset about this decision? I hate being exhausted. I hate getting off track. This job is destroying all hopes of a properly trained athlete. Not only am I not making any money, I’m not making any improvements on the bike. So, what the fuck am I supposed to do?
