Big start to the New Year   Leave a comment

I got off to a pretty good start… albeit a little slow.

Had to travel on New Year’s Day so I only managed a trainer session at 10:30 PM.

Saturday morning I ran 18… My heart wanted to do the group ride but… had some mechanical issues with my road bike…. did get another PM trainer session

Sunday morning… I got up for the group ride again… 80 miles scheduled… bike ready to go. It was 29 freakin degrees at 0700…. I read Brian’s NYD report for motivation… http://nyvelocity.com/content/2010/bear-and-back it did not work… I could not bring myself to bundle up in enough clothes to keep warmish… not to mention that since I live in Florida, I have no cold weather gear to speak of so I would have looked like a homeless dude on a Lemond. I did manage to get my running tights on… wearing running tights make me feel like I should be on a trapeze or high wire but… I digress…

I ended up running 22 cold slow miles… hopefully just the kind of training that will get me to the finish line of the 2 ultras on my race schedule over the next 8 weeks…
