|Did you miss me?|
I will hope for opportunities to ride outside this weekend, of course, but I may have to be patient and wait out more chilly, wet weather. That’s not exactly the way to harden myself against what could be a very cold morning at the state championships, but it won’t do me any good to get sick in the meantime.
I avoided the indoor trainer completely in November 2010. But having competition goals this late in the year has changed the equation. With sundown at around 4:30 p.m. and deteriorating weather conditions, riding inside is a necessary evil. When the state championships are behind me I will be happy to ignore the trainer again, perhaps until January.
