“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 IÂ 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.
