    As well, a balaclava is key for the cold. Simple to pull up high all the way over the ears and mouth for full coverage or drop it down to just hang around the neck if you warm up.

    Racing is training, right? Raced the Deschutes Brewery Cup cross race in Bend on Saturday then our final Cross Crusade race on Sunday. Saturday's race temps were around 5ish and Sunday warmed up to 16ish! I actually stayed warm while racing. We had about 4-5 inches of snow on the course so it was pretty awesome. Finished second in the 35+ race Saturady and won the Sunday race! Cross is over for me now - time to get out the skiny skis!

    21 hours and 18 hours. Hopefully another 18 or 19 hours this week followed by an easier rest week. I'm back in Florida on the 23rd (or 22nd) until the 6th. #bigmiles

    This. I stopped early yesterday as everything was feeling super tight and my knees were hurting. I'm hoping a light spin and epsom salt bath tonight will get rid of it, but only one hurts today which is weird.

    About 10 lbs to go to the upper end of race weight. It has been a while since I have been there.

    Pants are getting saggy, but I am still too fat for this sport. And I always will be.

    Rest days feel like I am the living embodiment of the deadly sin of sloth. Rest weeks get me dying to get back out on the road. I start having dreams about riding. Even having dreams about racing again even though I took over a year off. I haven't felt like that in a long time.

    The old feelings are kicking in and it is a good thing.

    Life is good.

    My friend might have been in your race. He posted the lap video if you haven't seen it. He was in the 2-3 race.

    1:20 on the FG on the way to work. 23F when I left the house, which is probably a record for me that doesn't involve waxed boards stuck to my feet.

    what a year for you!

    Sweet pic Andy, looks like a heel clicker

    On the trainer for a boring 1hr spin today. I think I actually saw the clock go backwards a few times.

    Back to the velodrome wed/thur for race/interval training. Wanted to puke a little bit last week, have to remember not to eat a meal on the way to the track this time.

    The Walmart in my area has hand warmers cheaper than anywhere else: 10 pack for 6 dollars. They are in the hunting section.

    I was just at costco and saw they had mega packs for fairly cheap. How cold is it? I ended up not using the pair that I was going to stuff in my shoe covers on Sunday sense they didn't heat up at all.
