Stretched Thin

Posted by on Aug 14, 2007 in Uncategorized | No Comments

It’s mid August. I am tired. So I am getting the physical and mental rest I need. Extra sleep, better nutrition, and more active recovery rides. I am hoping to recharge my batteries so that I can put in a good final exclamation point on the season in September and October.

I always look forward to summer, and I hate to see it go knowing that another long Utah winter approaches. However, in between the long hot days of July, and the short bitter days of January, is some of the best riding weather we see all year. September and October along the Wasatch are beautiful. The leaves start to turn, the day hikers and horseman dwindle, the temps drop, and the trails seem to magically smooth and tighten.

In the back of my mind I can feel the off-season motivation starting to creep into my conscience thought. But for now, the days are still long, still hot. And I need to rest my legs and mind…

    Just try not to jinx the weather like you did last fall… 🙂

    The next 2 months are always a blur – every year. Seems like everyone is heading up in the Apsens and riding like there is no tommorrow.
