I underestimated the mental impact that the season would have on me and to be quite honest, I was mentally and physically exhausted by the end of it. I had been looking forward to the end of the Auckland race but another piece of me was going to miss the training that had been done. The fact that I was going to miss it was a good sign, not missing it, hating it would be an issue. I had decided to cut all ties from training and do nothing for at least 4 weeks. By that stage I would be craving a run or ride and if that was the case I was ready to get back into the training for another season. I would enjoy the sleep ins and late morning starts. I would enjoy the early evenings and glasses of wine with dinner. Would four weeks be enough?????
