So far this winter we have been lucky in Massachusetts. Snowed only once and temps have been decent. My base is going to consist of longish rides with a a few of my riding partners to keep motivated along with trainer rides utilizing The Sufferfest and Spinervals DVDs. I have also been upping my time at the gym to increase my core strength, arms and back. Need to stay strong now so I can back off on weights throughout the main part of season.
My long rides have consisted of riding from my house to Norwell High School and doing a loop with the South Shore Bikers and then riding home; about 50 miles.
I also ride with a teammate Rick Russell who I meet in Needham and we go anywhere from 25-50 milers. Good to keep us both motivated.
My weight increased slightly to 157 lbs but I expected that. After Christmas I will be working to get down to 145.
I am also applying to get my MBA. Want to get that over with ASAP so I can stay strong with cycling. Try and do classes during fall, winter and spring and leave summer open for cycling.
Until next time!
