I think it has been a good rest week. Starting last Sunday, my legs were feeling tired and achey, my energy level was low, and I was feeling a bit down in general. Taking a week to rest, enjoy some easy road biking, and do some reading has helped me re-energize and re-focus. I think I'm ready to jump back in there!

Today I went out for an easy trail run on the cross country ski trails behind the local schools. While out there I cleared some debris from the trail and set up some little practice obstacles for mountain biking. I even took a few minutes to sit on a rock to watch the river flow by and meditate a little.

In a couple of minutes, I'll be off to practice on the mountain bike for a while. Next time I ride with Kevin I hope to be able to impress him with all the progress I've made... or at least not fall face first in the dirt as often as usual.


  1. Yup, I knew it! Your going out to practice riding that hill, that "you say" i can't ride. We'll just see who rides it first! Practice all you want, but you better be ready to pay up on that bet Laurel!!! Cuz i'm going to be looking to collect on it real soon!! - KC

  2. KC, that hill is impossible to ride up, no matter how experienced the rider. You will agree when you see it, but I'm hoping you will attempt a descent, which I plan to film because it should be a good show!
