Wow! Since Nationals I have taken some down time from biking and training. I love riding and racing, but after a few solid months of back to back racing etc, it can really wear on you. And sometimes I do just need to hang out, drink some beers and relax. I don't want to be concerned with things like trying to squeeze a ride in between work, or watching what I eat. Small stuff like that can really be a pain after a while.
Anyways, instead of really living it up I mostly just did a bunch of cleaning up and clearing out crap from my house. I always forget how much can accumulate during the bike season. I was also able to hit the skate park up pretty often. Since I don't get to go that much anymore, I really make the most of it when I can. All in all it was a perfect time to rest and refocus on the season. As I was looking at the calender, I still have plenty of races left. I am really excited to get back into the swing of things and hopefully put together some great results.
