So moving on, I have been crazy busy riding and playing since my last post. Work has been busy too (which is good) but really makes my life pretty simple. Since I work pretty much 630am till 330pm or 6 pm, or 6pm to 6pm on call shifts (totaling about 60-70 hours a week) every other aspect has to be well oiled. I get off work, eat a meal I have already planned the previous evening, while my food is settling I do life business on the phone at the same time, look at emails and weather, decide what training route to take based on my DRT workout then get dressed for a ride. I go out and have a blast on a ride then roll back home around 7 or 830pm, drink a recovery shake, take a bunch of vitamins, stretch, and do a few core exercises, the start getting ready for the next day. I take a shower, prep my lunch for work because the food I'm given in the doctor's lounge would kill me, then start prepping my dinner for after work and lay out my clothes for the next days ride. Then I'm off to sleep by around 10 or 11pm to get up at 530am. That keeps it simple. Eat, sleep, work, ride and repeat. Just like those corny shirts say. No wonder I don't have a boyfriend, there's just no time!
I totally cherish days that work is slower and rest days from training, I can catch up on everything that is thrown at me. I do like the simplicity of it all and I really like riding my bike faster and improving myself as a rider. Plus, its all fun and games when its race day!
