Sleep and ride. That was what the last few days has been filled with. That dam cold rolled it's way back into my life on Friday. I did manage to get my gym and bike time in on Saturday but spent the rest of the day staring at the tv or laptop. The Molly Monster and I did get out for a short snowshoe on Saturday evening. The fresh air did me well. Of course the 2 plus feet deep of fresh snow that we had in the previous days helped tire the dog out.
Sunday was another day of train and sleep. 3.5 hours with an hour of high intensity intervals pretty much drained my desire to do much more. Of course the lingering cold didn't help much but it was nice to not feel guilty about sitting on my ass staring at the wall.
Even feeling like crappy from the cold my legs have been feeling amazing the last couple days after the work outs. No knee pain at all. Keeping my fingers crossed that we are getting on the top of the hump and ready to coast to the land of painless. With me being in a peak week this is a great test for them.
About the only other productive thing I did was start finalizing my race schedule. My but Rob called let me know that the Enduro Series will be back into full swing this year. They are only keeping it to 3 races, one of those being the icebreaker but will have the championships in October. To cool thing with the timing of their events is that there are no races that conflict.
Now with that said this spring is going to be crazy busy leading up to Summer Solsitce. I think I have 2 weekends off in the 12 weeks but most of the events are used as training. The peak is still SS. After that things are still a little open ended.
Now where is my brain at. HMMMM I really need to get some dirt rides in soon. Hell just even some good long road miles would be nice right now. The weather has been completely nuts. One day its snowing so hard you can barely see your hand in front of your face to Sunday where it was plus 7 and pouring rain all day. Those nice soft powder filled snowshoe trails are not skating rinks as it frozen again yesterday. I think Mother Nature is having hot flashes.
Alright enough complaining. The plan is to play outdoors tomorrow. The intervals tonight with the gym workout was great but I need some fresh air again. Hopefully mother nature is in a good mood tomorrow.
