|Not the best picture of B*, but if you've been there you know that there is also a bit of single track in there too!|
Some would say take some time off, stop formally training, rest your body, and do something other than biking all the time for a while. I have a hard time with that answer, so today I decided to try a different approach. I decided to think about all the stuff I am grateful for on my cool down after today's workout, and that really helped shift my attitude/perspective.
Here is what I am most grateful for today.
Blackstar Canyon, and Harding Truck Trails. I live within riding distance of two amazing hour long fire road climbs that are perfect for so many of my workouts. I thought about all the possible places I could live where there are no 5-8% hour long climbs near by, and I just felt overwhelmed with gratitude that we happened to buy a house with multiple options! Right now the dirt roads are lined with wildflowers and fluffy green grass, and it is so so pretty up in the canyons.

Perspective, that's what I need to get my motivation and drive back :) I'm already getting more stoked for this weekend! Suck it overtraining!
