let the rest . . .

Right now it's about timing, and active slowing seems to do the trick.

Smelling the Sunrise is active slowing, only smelling. Walking the grass is active slowing, only walking.

Cessation of the multitask is active slowing.

Cessation of the multitasking mind seems to be . . .

The mind likes the task. It likes the multitask. It can do more! It can be, have, and create more!

Actively slow the multitasking mind with a singular task.

Feel the bubbles. Only bubbles.

And let

the rest

take care


. . .

Rest well.

Riding is awesome.

We're back to the bike!

Today was day #1 of bike camp numero uno. Wow it feels great to be back in the saddle for the longer rides.

One of my favourite feelings in the world happens about an hour or two after the last session of the day.

Cross the bridge, follow the water,
U - turn to Humbolt, & wait for the green.
Up the hill, down the hill, and onto Fairfield.

Blanshard, green.
Quadra, green.
Vancouver, clear.
Cook, HOME!!

Bagel & Jam, done.
Bagel & Jam & Cheese, done.

Bath, done.

Stretch, done.

Training, done.

Wow, it's 4:00! Where did the day go? Oh yeah . . . riding! Riding is awesome.

Rest well.

Count Chocolate

What makes practice count?
What validates a practice?
What makes a practice real?

Does a team validate the practice?
Conversation after practice . . . thoughts, considerations, relived moments.

What about the 100s of on your own solo practices we do every year?
What makes them real? Something else.

What about the races?

Do the competitors validate the race?
Does the announcer make it real?
Does the venue make it count?

What about the feelings, thoughts, considerations, emotions, answers, & relived solo racing moments? What makes them real?

What makes them matter?
What makes them count?

Why makes races count. Why makes practice count.

Rest well.
