On the Dark Side of the Moon

Every time you train for something serious, there comes a time when the amount of effort needed feels like its going to bury you, when the world goes dark and other concerns have to fade away. This week, I'm just going to have to keep on throwing on everything I can training-wise and after next week's taper we'll see what sticks and what doesn't. Until then, well, I'll be exhausted!

On the bike today, random bit of song going through my head, I guess this is where my brain feels like my body is at:

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear.
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon.

Bit of trivia to go with that snippet, did you know that Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon remained on the charts for 741 weeks (over fourteen years!), the longest duration of any album in history??

11.5 hours of training in the last 3 days, I'm going to bed now...

Hey Robin, A old hard core fitness dude I know once told that, "it's all about pushing yourself beyond what you thought was possible...". sounds like you're toeing that line. No surprise that album held so long, it's one of the all time best of any album...Floyd is awesome.

Made it to Utah. Should arrive in Salt Lake City later today. Tell the family I said hello!

I love the analogy.

And the song selection.

That may be showing our age.

But that is OK.

You've worked hard - enjoy your taper!
