It is raining today. This should not matter since I have no schedule outdoor exercise to speak of but it does. This past week… in just one week… we lost 2 of our Warriors to Cancer. Both were husbands and fathers and left behind very small children. The rain today keeps my mind on the two woman who are going to have to now be strong for their kids. My heart goes out to them!
I have embraced the TAPER and for once I am not going crazy. This past weekend was filled with a last – long – team – ride to the bakery and back where we enjoyed coffee and sticky buns at the half way point and then finished it off with a cold beer at the end. No hammer fest. Just celebrating the months of training now behind us and the adventure before us. All that is really left is packing, getting extra rest this week, a few short rides, and eating well… really well.
Since it has been forever I will share that last week I RAN TWICE and it felt great. I have had a few runs here and there but have not posted much. Last week my heart and legs absorbed my surroundings and I just did not want to stop. How I have missed it. Once this cycling event is completed I will figure out a way to bring a nice balance together with both again.
Running made me realize that I have yet to plan for my next event, my next goal, my next anything. Since I know the kind of girl I am the search begins. More to come on that.
