Recipe for disaster?

Here's the data:
  • For the first time since March, I really don't want to ride my bike at all;
  • my energy levels have been low for about six days;
  • I've been generally irritable around the family;
  • my work productivity has plummeted;
  • I'm not sleeping very well;
  • my mileage and intensity increased a lot during the lead-up to the races two weeks ago;
  • I built to a pretty good "peak" for those same races;
  • I'll be riding a bunch of six-hour mountain routes at altitude the week after next.
Conclusion: I need a rest week. No Wednesday worlds for me! Just some walks with the kids, a little yoga, and some core strengthening.
