Its really encouraging how many miles I have gotten on the bike since after Iceman. Most seasons I don't touch the bike between November and March. Fighting that seasonal disorder is really hard for me. The weather until just recentley has been great with no rain, sleat or snow. The temps in the last few days have been a bit nippy and I have been off work.
I just today signed up at LA Fitness mostly to take advantage of there spin classes. I have been there twice in the last four days and plan on making a ritual out of it in order to be ready for the 2010 season. I really want to strengthen my core and drop a few more pounds to be worthy of a certain light wieght frame I hope to be riding. Doing the classes is great! They are quick, intense and I can feel the results just by doing something slightly different. Afterwards I have been doing some super secret calastentics I learned from a Bruce Lee movie then I get the heck out of there before my family has a chance to miss me.
The 2010 season I hope to be a special one. It will be my last year in the category I have raced the last 3 years. I will either be moving up by age or skill level but it will be progress no doubt.
