“We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret.” — Jim Rohn
If you ride the Tour of Sufferlandria, you suffer everything.
Stage 4 is behind me. 5 more stages to ride.
I am noticing a few interesting changes since I started the tour.
The first is that I am going to bed much earlier. Closer to 9pm than 10pm. I am also still following my core conditioning program so I am pretty much spent by early evening.
The second is that I really feel great. As in totally awesome.
With this much effort being spent on the various stages with no recovery days, my body is releasing a lot of endorphins. These endorphins help to reduce the feeling of pain. But they do much more than that. They trigger a positive feeling in the body. Much like a drug.
Bring on the next stage.
