    Jesus, why do you hate bike racers?

    Family's in town, it snowed this morning, places to go, people to see... training this weekend is looking like a total bust.

    We are having a nice little cold snap down here in NC this weekend. I am hoping that this is the last of it...and that cycling heaven is just ahead. I'm going to see how it warms up today. I may go for a run instead of getting out on the bike. I plan to really step up my mileage next week, as I have my first races starting to sneak up on me.

    See, when I know a weekend is a potential bust and I'll be trapped at home, here's what I do:
    1) Morning of family visit, stash bike, trainer, and set of bibs in a shower.
    2) Close shower curtain.
    3) Family arrives; chat for a bit.
    4) Excuse myself to use the restroom
    5) Hop on bike, crank out a 2x5min interval with a 1-2min rest.
    6) Put bike and trainer back in shower, keep bibs on under clothes.
    7) Shock in-laws by coming out of restroom sweating profusely and short of breath.
    8a) Family is concerned about my health and well-being and tell me to get some rest. Time for more intervals.
    8b) Convince family that I am suffering from some sort of GI problem and use that as an excuse to visit the bathroom more times during the day.

    Rise very early on the third day and get your ride in before any notices that the tomb is empty.

    Everybody riding today here in Miami had tights and arm warmers on. It was a bit over 60 degrees.

    That's actually the plan--I think I can get a couple hours in before the family strikes.

    I'm very afraid to ask where in a cyclists life you think the 'place' should be.

    Please respond AFTER Easter lest we all incur God's Wrath (no insult towards The Cypress implied or intended).

    It's a trainer, and yes... it looks like I'll be able to sneak in some FTP intervals while watching the US Open. Things are looking up. Maybe Jesus doesn't hate me after all.

    Yeah I was surprised how chilly it was. Luckily I checked the weather before leaving and it said it was in the high 50's so I took my arm warmers.

    Low 70's here, cloudy but no expected rain, and as a teacher on Spring break, I took advantage of it!

    Heading out at sunrise tomorrow for a solo 80 miles (longest ride in 12 years). Should be 36 and wet. I guess that will make it a religious experience.

    That's what we did this morning. 19 degrees at start time, 29 degress at the end. I almost bagged it but I feared the mocking from patentcad given all the cold weather riding he does.
