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.........
- Post run functional strength work...this season I'm taking a more holistic view of my #swimbikerun & ensuring that strength work doesn't get skipped. . . . #triathlon #ironman #salmingrunning #IFB #triathlete #2020goals #running
- Impromptu Bowie Isolation Marathon
- Still reflecting on @gravel_worlds from this past weekend. 150miles of primo gravel in Lincoln NE with 10,000ft of climbing. It was hard but I went for it and utimately paid the price in the last hour when I cracked, really cracked. Crawled to the finish just over 9hrs after starting.....but yes it was fun! . . . . . #gravelworlds #gravelride #IFB #parvillacycles #cycling #vandessel #lincoln
- First cross race of the season at #AACX today....always a tough race when you are the race director as well but had a solid race for 4th in the Elite Masters. . . . . . #IFB #cyclocross #parvillacycles #vandessel #tifosioptics #pactimo #industrynine
