My allergies have kicked up since yesterday making me lethargic and congested. Chlorine only aggravated this today. Also, I am starting to feel a small pinch in my left calf. If this continues, it may be a good idea to take a day off tomorrow. After last week’s tough week, I have earned it. My body is screaming for some rest. I better listen to my body!
Today starts the final week before I leave for Cabo. I remain nervous but excited. Since taper has begun, I will take it easy for the next 10 days to make sure that my body and mind are rested nicely before the start of the race. Later this week, I will get my bike tuned up. I bought a bento box to carry nutrition on my bike (it was made to carry a phone, but will work perfectly for nutrition).
