Vacation in Sufferlandria sounds like a painstakingly wonderful idea.
Unfortunately not having the time luxury of a full vacation, my plan is to go for extended lunches to Sufferlandria, as I work right next to the border with Officelandria. But I will spend the weekends!
I normally work the full week. But this year I’ve decided to take half days all week. I start at 7.30am so can finish at 11.15am, quick cuddle with the little minion before she goes for her lunch nap. Then ride the stage while she’s asleep
HeHe … you are going to suffer to glorious heights on the tour. Me, well I am retired so all I see on my calendar is ride and recover … every day. Best of luck and you can always find and available Flogging Station if you get bored.
I’ve been on permanent vacation in Sufferlandria since 2013 and have a partner who’s very supportive of me locking myself away in my play cave or the GSL dungeon so I feel very fortunate when the Tours are on. I was working during last year’s ToS but it was kinda company policy that you had to ride the Tour so wasn’t so bad. The Tour can be pretty all consuming - physically, mentally, emotionally, socially - if you let it so be prepared for any best laid plans to get shredded, set on fire, doused in holy water and danced on.
As of the current COVID situation I have to work from home anyway. With having “only” meetings as fixed appointments I will be able to do both: The ToS and full time work. For sure I will use the time windows, to be able to shift the stages back and forth to make them fit into my schedule (work, family, sport).
P.S.:If you can type while doing ISLAGIATT your 4DP metrics is too low
During previous tours, as far back as 2013, I developed a strategy for managing the insanity of every stage and work/home life responsibilities.
What I did was I alternated stage time. On one day I would get up super early and do the stage before work. On the next day I would do it after work/dinner prep with family, then the third day, I would take a long lunch break and do it at noon. That way I maximized recovery, but also didn’t take up 9 evenings of family time. This year there are only 7 stages. Easy!
This scheduling may not work for you, but hopefully it gives you some ideas? Suffer well!
