The motion sickness bag that is. Flying to Calgary tomorrow for Friday's start and nervous as hell. Throwing up sounds like a relief. Tapering and rest are just as, if not more important, than actually training these last 10 days. The downside-my nerves are at an all time gut wrenching level. Even listing to the Black Flag Damaged album provided no relief.
|These are in my carry on.|
I'm packed, panicked and under slept. it's good training for the tour divide. handing by bike off to United tomorrow will be relief. it will be out of my hands. I was trading emails with Matthew Lee this morning about the route in Colorado, specifically Monarch pass out of Salida. it's still buried in snow, but melting fast. I think mud will be the biggest problem, not snow. i told Matthew we should keep the current course even if there is still snow to navigate. It's the tour divide after all...expect the unexpected.
