The Dead Zone

I'm entering a phase in my training where I'm simply tired of training. Mentally, not physically. It's been 12.5 weeks, with 7.5 weeks to go and mentally I'm barely hanging on.

Last Saturday's 20 miler that began well, was a disaster in the middle (stomach issues), and exhausting (dehydration) at the end didn't help. The subsequent 24 hours of blood and mucous didn't thrill me either.

I need a vacation.

The last three trips have been on you... but FL is sunny and relaxing.

I need a vacation as well and have miles to burn... we should talk schedule. I need 21 days advance notice and a long weekend sound good to me. Heck, I am use to the commute. ;)
