Let's see, its been 4.5 day's since the race ended. My body has been so tired. I just can't seem to get enough sleep. There has been no training for me. just rest and relax. I can remember after all the my long events in the 9-24 hour range, I would be training again right away. Even then I would know that it was to soon to be hitting high volume of training. But my ego would not let up. Maybe its my age? Not really sure. But I have no desire to dig myself in a black hole no more. Noy saying I'm not going to extend myself from time to time but not week after week anymore. I am going to heed some of my own advise. So my plan is after feeling well enough to train, take 2 more day's easy before starting again. At this point my chest still hurts a lot, and I have a shortness of breath when doing anything taxing.
I did have big plans for this week to get my garage in order but looks like that's going to have to wait. I'm going to spend some time with my wife! This time of ours is well needed & deserved. She sacrifices so much of our time already. But understand what it takes to be on top. Not to many people can grasp that consept or even understand it.

I love you sweetie and I look forward to spending whatever time we get this weekend, even if it's only Sunday afternoon so that you can spend some time with your mom :) Did I mention that I'm proud of you?!?
