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.
