Feeing pretty drained from the race, the carb binge and the interrupted sleep. Claire is getting her canine teeth and waking up about 20 minutes after we go to bed (no matter when that is), and somewhere between 4:30 and 6am, without any intent of returning to sleep until morning nap time.

The contrast between the week of PRs and copping an absolute smashing in yesterday’s race shouldn’t be messing with my head – it makes perfect sense – but it is. I feel desperate to ride more, but it’s also been one of those days where life feels too full.

Work was an uphill battle, freelance is a burden I wish I hadn’t signed up for, and training, or just aimless rolling, is something I’d love to be doing but it’s so far down the list it’s not funny.
