Winter is here bringing with it on most days, bitter cold weather with strong winds and very little sunlight.
I try my best to juggle things around to squeeze a ride in when I can but it’s a lot harder while fighting the elements. I don’t mind not going out as regular during this season. I’m a guy who enjoys taking a short break from training hard every day.
Winter is a time to get back into the gym, work on the upper body and the core. It’s also hockey season and skating is another great cross trainer. Still, I like to get out on the bike at least once a week so the legs don’t completely forget all that hard work they did throughout the year. The gym also has a trainer that I ride every day for around 30 – 40 minutes. But they should replace the word “trainer” with the word “boring”.
It serves its purpose.
I’ll be excited to ride come March. I have a new TREK Madone 6.5 waiting for me and it’s sure to bring a load of inspiration.
For now, I’ll ride out the winter. 🙂
