Rest for the weary


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?

  1. just so you know, if you don’t rest then at some point The Universe will make sure you rest. Happened to me. Multiple crashes on mtb and no CX season.
