I'm more than halfway through my race season, and I'm starting to feel a bit of burnout. Maybe I'm still adjusting to my new job and schedule, which includes a long commute, intense lunch rides, and hyper focused work days. Or maybe all the racing is catching up to me. I do love riding and racing, but it's hard finding the time to balance everything, especially training. I sometimes feel slow on the bike, but my results are saying otherwise, which is important that I get enough rest during the days between races. It's Monday, and I feel guilty for not riding. I try to do one rest day a week, but I go between feeling like I can't get enough of it and doing too much of it. Balance is the key.
