I’m tired....



This weekend I met up with Tea for a ride. It was really nice to finally meet up with her. We had a nice ride and some good conversation. During our ride she expressed that she was just tired, that it was a good thing that taper had arrived and that it was time for some rest. I said that I was feeling pretty good still. Well today it hit me. I’m tired. I’m done. I’m ready for this race and everything that brings (the good the bad and the ugly) to be done. My whole right side hurts. I’ve got a crick in my neck my shoulder blade hurts, my ass hurts, and occasionally my Achilles tendon hurts. ( I need to go to the chiropractor!) My left big toe nail is split across the middle. I feel exhausted, which could be from the training, the heat (88 degrees in my house yesterday! No I don’t have A/C despite the fact that I work for a heating and A/C distributor.), lack of sleep, or the fact that I’ve been eating nothing but crap for the last 2 weeks.

I’m tired....

Ok I’m done complaining now.... 13 days and counting....

Me too. All if it. Only it's my left side and my lower back.

I'm not quite there but I can feel it. I still have about 8 weeks to go....but I'm getting there. Of course having 100+ degree temps for most of July doesn't help either!!!!

You've earned the rest. The heat alone would do it, and you've done all that work on top of it.

I'm tired too! I just can't get rest. Taper weeks are the best to catch up and rejuvenate.

<2 weeks........now give your body the rest and relaxation it so deserves. You've worked it hard the last few months. Let it rest so it's ready to kick some ass on race day!!
