Actual conversation I had with my body after the Pro1/2/3 Crit.
Body - hey Ryan
Me - Yeah whats up?
Body - WTF was that?!
Me - What was what?
Body - WTF did you just put us through?!
Me - Oh, sorry guys, I forgot to tell you that we were going to do a P123 Crit. I wasn’t sure how fast it was going to be. And hey, I know you guys are feeling kinda tired and sick but I would like to thank you, especially my legs, for hanging in there. The team really appreciates it.
Body - Well, sorry bro, we are shutting down. Call us in a few days,
Me - What if I promise to rest on Sunday and get a massage on Monday?
Body - Ehh…
Me - …and I will reward you guys with pizza on Sunday night. Even though you guys are protesting on Sunday, even though I put you guys through three weeks of travel and racing, and even though everything hurts : I’m still really proud of what I accomplished. I could have easily gone and done the cat 3/4 race and done well, I chose to do the Pro1/2/3 race knowing full well it would be hell. So thanks.
Body - Welcome, I guess, whatever. We will be back to working in a few days.
I got a few weeks to rest until State Champs. Them Tour de Sol is after that. That conversation above is no joke, I am in a lot of pain. I had back pains the week leading into VOF and then caught a cold; probably from the rainy time trial on Friday. Well, that's racing. Back to training...
