While I'm certainly glad I got a lot of rest and had a day off it is definitely strange to have a day in the middle of this event where I don't ride my bike. I am in such a schedule of eating, dressing, riding, eating, sleeping, etc. that having a day where I just throw out the biggest activity of my day and replace it with "resting" threw me a little. The biggest thing that affects me, I think, is that when I'm riding, I'm perfectly fine-I know that I'm doing what I'm supposed to be doing and I'm having fun. But when I'm not riding, I'm sort of dreading getting back on the bike. It's definitely threw me out of my rhythm.
