Last year my kind of Off Season was sneaking in runs. Adding on, say... 25 extra miles to an already strenuous venture through the Grand Canyon. An occasional 'oh whoops, I have no idea how I ended up biking that many extra miles.' Guilty!
This year, as hard as it is for a stubborn-always-on-the-go-do-not-want-to-slow-down-hard-headed-do-it-my-way-girl, I truly took time OFF.
Like off off. Like absolutely nothing. ZERO. and guess what...
T continues to help me see...
'Training hard is easy; recovery takes courage and confidence.'
Relax. Recover. Rest. Really, it is pretty damn simple. This whole process is actually pretty dang easy when you have the confidence to follow the rules.
Work your ass off. Build your body up! GO GO GO. Harder harder harder. Push the body past your limits...

... you know what is not included in THIS chain of events? Injury. I plan to keep it that way too. Anyways:
Fitness was lost.
Weight was gained.
My mental sanity was tested.
Body rejuvenated, rested, and ready. BACK TO STEP 1!
