Build Week

3 hours in last week. My weight dropped down to 155. Goal is to be around 145 by mid-April.

This is my first week in the build portion of my season. Going to continue with the hard rides on sufferfest. I also look to be outside for 2-3 hours on Thursday same for Sunday. Weather dependent of course. I am feeling great over this season I wish I had more time in the saddle. Mid-March should be my planned time to be in group rides, I look forward to the Saturday beat down rides.

Blizzard of 2013

So this storm but a dent in my riding. Good news is I got a ton of strength exercises and cardio with shoveling and fighting the snowblower. Since I work at Stop & Shop I did not get a day off this week so my ride time was 0. I did manage to go to the gym. This week I got 3 nights and my day off so I will be on the trainer and hitting it hard. I have 81 days until Dragons starts. Hopefully I can hit the roads in March and not be behind 8 ball too much. Time will tell!

Indoor Riding

Just to go on the record, I despise riding on the trainer. I will say though, Sufferfest videos have been great for me. Hard efforts with recovery periods. I am liking how my trajectory is going this year. Hopefully hit the roads more often in February/March. I am fully recovered now. Today I am doing the gym/trainer double. Not too bad. Dragons here I come!

If I can find group rides that are going out Saturday/Sunday I will be jumping in those!
