Cold, overcast, and windy! Yeah! Just did a short tempo ride today. After an A.M. gym session I was not in the mood to ride the trainer so I put on my Belgium knee warmers and did what other roadie worth his or her salt would do. RIDE! I am getting used to riding in the wind as it is always windy here but grey and overcast with hints of rain WTF.

What amazes me is how that stuff keeps working even after you shower. I don't get it, it must be magic. Well I've spent enough time on the magic internet porn machine.
I thought I better get back in the habit of updating this thing. I't just a pain in the ass to come up with something witty or inspiring about a trainer ride or a gym workout. That said yesterday Keith, Laura and I road out to the test track and then Time Trial back. I just fucking suffered. My leg were shelled from the front squat/jump combo I did yesterday, and I don't like being in the time trial position anyway. I don't seem to generate much power from a closed hip position. I can't wait till the snow melts and I can start riding in the mountains again.
I am still waffling on my focus of the year do I want to try to become a better all around racer or still focus on races with just a ton of climbing. The easy way would be to just do what I am good at, but what is the fun of not evolving. Plus a we all know the path of least resistance is mined!
