Last week was an intense block of riding. I logged in close to 15 hours in the saddle, the most since January of this year. I covered 230 miles and over 20,000' of climbing, more than double than January. So, I could use a break, to say the least. I'm gearing up for a Leadville Qualifier in Lake Tahoe next weekend, so I want to make sure I'm well rested and properly trained this week.
