Aaand I’m Back….

After a month of beautiful weather and some great riding, I safely made it back up to Mars Hill yesterday in around 12 hours. Greeting me was even more beautiful weather! Dark skies, snow storms, constant freezing temperatures, it just doesn’t get any better, especially for riding! All sarcasm aside though, it’s pretty cold to say the least, but I’m keeping warm and will be spending a lot of my time on the trainer. I spent a good bit of time last semester on trainer and didn’t see any drop in fitness, so I’m not too worried. With the racing season right around the corner though, I would like to be able to get out on the road to ride as much as possible, also to test the new bike.

One good thing that has come out of all of this bad weather is a cancelation of the first day of classes, which is a huge relief. I also have a feeling that classes will be canceled Wednesday as well, but will just have to wait and see.

The Blue won’t stop looking at me begging me to ride it! The Rock Lobster is the designated trainer and bad weather bike right now, but I’ll have to get on the Blue more at some point to get used to the positioning.

I also met the two new recruits today which both seem like really awesome guys and I look forward to the training and racing we’ll be doing together! One of them is from Germany, while the other is from South Africa. Both boast an impressive riding resumé, so it’s great to have people of that caliber on the team. I managed to join them and some others for a trainer session today even though I was still feeling some of the long drive in me, but had a good time. Tomorrow we’ll be doing another session with a bit higher intensity and possibly some threshold tests. Wish me luck!
