It's Monday, meaning I shouldn't be on a bike at all, however one must get to work somehow. I've been going really hard the past few weeks, still recovering from hard efforts and multiple injuries. Nothing too serious, just a bit of road rash that needs to scab over (gross, I know). I also need to catch up on my sleep, which is just as important as the amount of hours I put in on the saddle. I'm still on track for a good Leadville race. I'm teetering on feeling confident about finishing under nine hours. Since I missed the qualifier out in New York I'm doing the one in Lake Tahoe instead. It's a month away, and it'll be a perfect event to test my altitude lungs.
