Keeping My Head Level...
Did you guys notice how quickly I went a bit bonkers after my last race? "What am I gonna do? Where'm I gonna go? Core? Race Schedule? ArrrrrrGH!" Bah ha ha! Geesh... I am one unstable pup!
I went for a mellow spin with Drew on Monday of this week in Bend and as usual he was able to bring me back down to earth and chill me out a bit. I swear if I didn't have people like that in my life I would go 1,000 mph 24/7 until I completely crashed! THEN I would be so burned out that I couldn't even say the words, "brick session".
This picture aptly illustrates Drew's mentoring (though he doesn't yell). It's kind of a "Pull it together man!" type thing. Thanks Drew! You can see the pic in it's original context HERE if you'd like.
I also got to have dinner with Coach Matt and discuss some future plans with him as well as the race schedule for next year. There's a big question mark from him on the full Eugene marathon as well as the self-supported Ironman with Drew in August. Believe me... aggressive negotiations will be had on that one. (More about the self-supported Ironman later)
