I learned my lesson the week leading up to the Sea Otter Classic. I need to rest as hard as I train. After the Napa Valley Dirt Classic I only had five days in between to recharge, but failed to do so by packing in a few high intensity rides during the week. Plus the additional stress of leaving work compounded the situation. So this week my plan is to make sure I fully recharge my batteries, test out my legs here and there, and see how I feel towards the end of the week. The Lemurian Shasta Classic is just around the corner, and I want to do well.
