The past four weeks since the 70.3m Worlds have been official "downtime" with training being limited and just doing enough to keep me ticking over. Starting this Saturday the winter base training kicks in and the hours gradually begin to increase in preparation for the Spring races, and in particular Eagleman in early June. In time I will post my 2007 season review and also a preview of the 2008 season including races and goals.
In the meantime however, we have had the first winter storm of the season (a couple of inches of snow) just in time to derail the first weekend of the base training.....at least I have a few months to catch up! It's a good job that I purchased an indoor bike trainer this past week.......
- Perfect day out on the trails yesterday on the @alchemybicycles at #schaefferfarms . . . . . . #IFB #parvillacycles #MTB #xterratriathlon #mtbracing #marathonmtb
- Kind of a rough day at 6hrs at Woodstock. First 3.5 hrs were fine (even with a 10min stop for horses on the trail) and then stomach shut down. Probably related to stomach bug earlier in the week. Decided not to head out for another lap. Great trails though and a good race from Joe's Bike Shop as always. 📸: @dchammerette . . . . #6HAW #parvillacycles #mtbracing #mtbmarathon #IFB #patapsco #mtb
- Got to ride the trails at Marine Corp Base Quantico yesterday at the Quantico Epic....50 miles of awesomeness despite the muddy trails. Gradually feeling like I have recovered from the #bestbikegameever . . . . . . #marathonmtb #parvillacycles #alchemybicycles #IFB #quanticoepic #cycling #mtbracing
