This time of year isn't much fun for running. Don't get me wrong, I love running but the darkness descends and my running shoes don't get to see daylight until at least March. Early morning runs are in the dark and evenings runs are in the dark...
The lack of daylight severely limits the routes that I can run and I generally have to pound the sidewalks, a minority of which have lighting....good job I like eating carrots! No longer can I get out onto my long rural routes using the back lanes amongst the fields and farms. That's what I miss most, getting away from the traffic, the hustle and bustle, and being able to push the pace past the corn fields and the odd cow munching away on the grass. Not until the daylight comes back will I be able to do that and in the meantime I struggle to find new routes on the local sidewalks....
At least the sidewalks are generally snow and ice free and I'm able to get outside and not be stuck on the dreadmill until Winter's end!
- Can we start planning on the race schedule for 2021? Progress is being made in the search for vaccines....lets hope so eh? Better start training just in case! . . . . #IFB #parvillacycles #unpavedpa #cyclinglife #vandessel #gravelride #cycling #ciclismo #cyclingphotos
- With group rides being off the table for the foreseeable future (my own personal choice) it's been fun to spend some more time on the #specializedshiv Time to think of an epic ride to do. . . . . #iridespecialized #specializedfans #IFB #parvillacycles #timetrial #swimbikerun #ironmantri #cyclinglife #triathlon
- Throwback to 2015 at #interbike when we met this legend in the line for beer! #JanUllrich looked like he could still rip up the mountain passes and was gracious to chat with us a while. Not every day you get to meet a #tourdefrance great! . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #cyclinglife @janullrichfanclub #cyclingphotos #instabike
- Took a little time off training for some minor surgery and to generally take a break after a slow but solid build through the summer. With races planned for 2021 it's time to get back into training. . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #swimbikerun #triathlon #ironmantri #cycling #xterratriathlon #triathlontraining
