I really would like to write a ride report for the Knoxville Double and now would be the time to do it, but I don’t want to. I feel tired and worn out and maybe I should go out and buy me a coke? Are you kidding? It is about 100 degrees outside and I am never leaving my shaded apartment again.
Dorothy Parker is supposed to have said, “I hate writing. I love having written.”
I feel the opposite way about doing doubles. I like doing the doubles, but I hate having done them.
The doubles start early in the morning, so you start the double with a sleep deficit. I got up at 0230 to start Saturday’s double. I end the doubles late and then do not sleep well the next night, so I continue the deficit. -And then let us not forget the 200 mile ride that is done between the two nights without enough sleep. Maybe I am just tired. Maybe I just need another nap. I don’t know. How long I am supposed to feel sort of lousy? My back hurts. I’ll write my report later. I wish someone would come over and do my laundry.
