My 2016 Fitness Started This Week

2016-02-26 10.24.23

My winter of smile first riding has me good and hungry for 2016. I’m not dreading the trainer, rollers, or outdoor team rides. I’m enjoying them, and looking forward to the fitness they bring. I had a surprise KOM earlier this week on a team ride, wasn’t expecting that.

This is the third year I’ve used a 10 week Sufferfest training plan that outlines both indoors and outdoors rides and other activities. It’s a good kick in the but, but as they preach #IWBMATTKYT.

Time to do work. 2016’s gonna be fast and fun.

Today On A Bike

I joined some friends for a night ride at Lake Evergreen yesterday. My friend Tom took some great pictures during the ride, thanks! When I saw the one of me by the bridge, I really liked it and asked to share it here. It captures a lot of what night riding on snow during the winter feels like.

The conditions were great despite it being about 15º F. Riding in the wind blocking woods coupled with some good layering made it really enjoyable, besides my out of shape legs being slightly angry with me. The thin layer of snow over hard frozen dirt provided a lot of traction and good times.
