Well its down to one more day. I can definitely say I am ready for it. It has been a tough week. Probably more mentally than physically.
My body is sore and tired, but my mind is extremely tired. It is such a battle to put yourself in the mindset to crush yourself each day. It could be so easy to let the sensibility of the mind allow you to slow down.
"Yo, ya know you really don't have to ride that fast. It hurts you fool, slow down. No, No don't you dare go after that wheel.".
I beat my mind down and stayed focused for the course. I won the stage today and continue to keep the leader's jersey. .
We missed the storms during today's ride, but will pay for it with sunshine and MUD tomorrow. Mountain biking is so much fun!.
Our camp has had two mascots all week: Jeb and Molly. So calming to reach down to pet them and allow them to remind you how simple and fun life can be. .
Off to bed. Sweet dreams...
