My friend Matt and i are going to try and ride a road that has a shoulder out and back today. 273 is a comon road around here that is hilly but usually has a wide shoulder that gets cleared of snow. The only proble is when i woke up this morning the temperature was -1, factor in the wind and the fact that we will be moving about 17 miles an hour and the road is pretty open = one cold ass ride. When I think about the alternative of riding my trainer in the basement, my decision gets a little easier.
Also My coach www.fatmarc.com has me doing 11 hours of base this week. Well it is Friday and I have a grand total of 1 hour, and that hour was on the trainer yesterday. I have never been one to spend a lot of time on the trainer. Actually an hour is about my limit. So I guess I will have to bundle up and suck it up, and ride 273 for 2-3 hours today. At least I will have company, that is unless Matt wimps out on me. Of course I will point this out to him. It's amazing what you can get people to do when you call them a pussy.
Well I let you know how it went today.
