It's in my head. The Leadville 100 is 10 days away. It's all I can think about. I'm starting to lose sleep. Not only that but I find myself doing silly things like washing my hands several times per day or not letting my kids drink out of my Diet Coke cuz you know, what if they have a cold or something? The last thing I want is to get sick the week of the race.
I weigh myself twice per day. Every pound can help. I'm down to 163 lbs as of this morning.
Lately when I ride, I find myself taking it slow on the downhill. Just last week both Sam and Dug crashed and are nursing injuries. I don't need that.
I know I should relax and not worry as much but I can't. Having trained for this one ride all year, I want to be sure I can put in a good effort.
I've never been this worried about a stupid ride. I don't like it. I want it all to be over.
