Work, rest, repeat
If you are a regular reader of my blog, you may not be surprised that my idea for this post came on a bike ride - again. Sorry about that, but I do some of my best thinking while out on rides. The upside for me is maybe I could also submit my blog to Bicycling magazine!
I’ve been doing some extra training recently, as I am doing a 50-mile fundraising ride. I know it’s a "ride" and not a "race," but I can’t help myself. I’m a bit competitive. I have been working pretty hard, but once the ride is over, I’ll back off the training again. Maybe it’s age, but I’m a firm believer that you need time to rest and recover after a hard physical effort. Your mind and body need to refuel and regain strength.
Similarly, I believe you periodically need time off from work to recharge your battery. I recently went to Door County for a long weekend...
