Long story short... after Friday's run I was done. Done. Done. Done. The only way I could have gone to Leadville this weekend or anywhere else for that matter would have had to be by plane because I sure as hell was not going to drive. I said "uncle", I give in... time to just stop and do nothing.
After talking it out with Melissa and trying to come up with alternative plans we both agreed that I needed to just sit tight and rest and sleep. Though I had been sleeping all week I never felt rested. Hell, even during my runs I just wanted to sleep.
|Asia and I practicing the art of doing nothing on Friday night.
Plans for the day... nothing. Get caught up around here. I mowed and weed whacked which really needed to get done. I even mowed the weeds in the parking area for the cottage in the back.
|Fiddled with the bike before taking it to Pro Cycling. They will set it up come Wednesday and it will be 100% race ready.
Watched a movie this afternoon, ate some leftover Chinese and broke out my two new pairs of Hokas to set up for the run in two weeks. Just another one of those things I needed the time to be able to sit down and take care of... at home.
|Running out of things to do and Asia needs a walk but the rain is just not letting up.
Next week will be busy enough. Melissa comes home on Tuesday and we head up for the bike race on Thursday. It will be here soon enough.
Lastly, and on a good note. According to Accuweather, the forecast for Leadville the race weekends is definitely improving. Looks like both races now may be somewhat dry and cooler. Excellent conditions.
|Conditions could change but for now things are looking up for the 10th and the 17th weather wise. Nice.
