It kind of hit me that a) I am a very lucky kid to be living this lifestyle, to have a job which affords me so much saddle time, and to love cycling so much, and b) I am toeing a fine line here between getting in quality training, and overdoing my physical output every day resulting in illness. This week was punctuated by some incredible mountain biking after work, Tuesday in Silverado, Wednesday in Laguna, and Thursday in Blackstar, but I also felt an illness coming on, and was quite stressed about the prospect of loosing days of training to illness.
This is just a season of my life, but it's an interesting one that I don't want to forget.
|This bike even makes Over/Unders fun :)|

Now it's way past bedtime, but no worries, this weekend has lots of room for sleeping in! Cheers to a three day weekend :)
