Time to get back to training.

My first Blog post ever and I'm thrilled it's for my all-female mountain bike team!

I started training in October and then fell off during the month of December, due to work and the holidays. I blame work for missing January, but I can't blame anything or anyone anymore! I'm feeling excited about getting back to taking spinning classes and weight training.

Another great motivator is I'm getting a new mountain bike to replace the one I ran into the parking structure at The Great Dane-Fitchburg. My first place choice is a Giant Anthem 1. It's a dual-suspension bike, so I hope to adapt quickly. I'm also turning 40 this summer, so I think a new bike is a great way to celebrate.

I rode my bike today!

In the winter I'm not one of those dedicated bike racer gals like many of my teammates who rides their trainer or gets out to do base miles. I like to ski and play in the snow and so I don't do any bike-related training. However, I don't put the bike away completely and continue bike commuting to work. I've been traveling around the state since the coldest spell hit so I haven't been out biking. Today I was back in Madison so I found all my bike commuter gear and pedaled to work. The bank sign said it had "warmed up" and was now only -1. It actually didn't feel that cold although I really needed to have a layer under my tights . . . next week I'll wear either my Craft boxer briefs or some bike shorts if it is still that cold out in the morning.
