... THE REST OF THE STORY

TODD BROWN


I HAVE THIS FRIEND WHO IS JUST A TERRIBLE RACER.  Stronger than everybody until race day.  Then, he loses his mind.  Shows up tired.  Forgets how to win, like on the training rides.

I was reminded of this right before I jumped into the shower.

Don't judge.

Yet.

A while back I made a pledge to do 10 pull ups and 30 push ups every time I take a shower.  Of course, I take Saturday off because #bigride.  I take Sunday off because I take Sundays off.

Last Friday I was really dragging.  Could only do 8 and 25... so made myself do 4 and 10 after a bit of a rest.

Today, being Monday, I stepped up and rattled 'em off.

Rest.

Who knew?

Tapering.

Who wants to know?

In this month's CampFire Stories going out to the PEDALposse I'm detailing the day I decided to go for Tahoe 100 which lead to doing Leadville 100... and there I'll detail exactly what I did 14 days prior.

We'll also include some sorta swag.
