At the moment the training camp can't come quick enough......
snow last weekend= no outdoor riding
snow during the week=limited outdoor running
snow forecast this weekend=no outdoor riding
Since we moved to the States in 2004, I guess we must have been kinda lucky. We missed the 2003 winter which by all accounts was bad in terms of snow and since then there have only really be a couple of doozies that have crippled the roads for more than a day. Old Man Winter must have been on vacay...
You just get used to bundling up and riding outside in the cold....cold I can do, snow on the roads just isn't worth the risk. Yeah that might sound wussy but there is bigger fish to fry in the summer. Killing it on the Saturday group ride in February when there is ice and snow around just doesn't sound appealing, perhaps I'm getting old!
At least we are in February now and you can just start to see that Spring isn't that far away. The training camp will make that come even faster and before you know we will all be working on the tan, swearing at the humidity and wishing for the onset of Fall.........
- Local Trails are the Best Trails
- Searching out some local gravel for a recovery hour this evening......Bowie Racetrack was perfect! Dead flat, no-one else around, zero cars. 128 furlongs of easy riding. . . . #parvillacycles #gravelride #cycling #ciclismo #bowiemd #IFB
- A throwback for #timetrialtuesday, my last #ironmantri at Louisville in 2013. This year was going to be my "comeback" to the Ironman distance but it will have to wait until 2021. . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #swimbikerun #triathlon #2021goals #pactimo #gurucycles #ironmanlouisville
- 3 months of no swimming and I have to say that I am beginning to miss it. Don't get me wrong I like swimming but I don't like the process of the swim (drive to pool etc). It will be back before we know it as will races.... . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #swimbikerun #ironmantri #triathlon #swimming #triathlete #xterratriathlon #triathlontraining
