A whole lot of nothing

Well as for myself, not much has been going on. Last week we did have a couple of very nice December days with temperatures in or near 40's which was amazing. I got out for some nice rides, the kind you don't get to do when stuck inside riding. Then Saturday came and it's been miserable since. Just wet, snowy, and cold.

This past season I started working with Andy Applegate as my coach and I think it really started to pay off towards the end of the season last year. Now starting off the season with him I think it is going to help tremendously. He has already gotten me my best result at Iceman, and a victory at the Gravel Grovel. Though I must be honest we didn't plan for the Gravel Grovel, as he didn't know I was doing it till the week of. No need to peak for an event in November.

So far the training has been different from what I am use to doing, but I have never felt better about going into a season. Hopefully I will be able to continue to get the training in consistently like I have been over the past two months this offseason. I think that alone will make a big difference. But we will see.

Another good thing this offseason has been riding on the weekends with my teammate Chad. It makes the cold miles go by faster. We also have teammate Rob going to Marian College which is just down the road so we will all be able to get together and train. To bad though for the next two weeks I am on my own as Rob went home, and Chad ducked out and headed to Florida. Now I sit here at my computer staring out the window at the snow wondering if today will be an indoor or outdoor ride. Sweat or freeze? Either way I'm going to get wet. On the bright side though, daylight hours just get longer from here, as yesterday was the first day of winter.

Breeze On

A whole lot of nothing? What up Breezer? I am sitting at my desk and it is sunny and in the mid fifties but I am stuck in front of my computer. The riding is pretty good in the bay, I think I am riding Mt Tam on Christmas. Take care Breezer, enjoy those k's.
