March is a month of great change and the snow is melting. I’m not sure how soon I will comfortably be able to ride outside though. Numerous potholes, sand, salt, and rivers of water along the side of the road make road biking outside difficult and just very messy. The trails are too mushy to try riding on and will probably last to melt with all the packed snow on them.

Inside, winter training has been a combination of spinning classes, running, swimming and lifting. Outside its been snowshoeing, cross country skiing, downhill skiing, and hikes. I sound like I’m complaining but not so much really. I’ve enjoyed the cross training and know I will be that much more eager to get back on my bike. I’ve enjoyed mixing up the workouts and hope to see it give me a strong start.

In the meantime I can be found daydreaming of new bike routes and fantasizing of riding the Kingdom Trails. I’m considering riding an old mountain bike on the road and getting disgustingly dirty while aiming for potholes.

I guess I’m ready to get back on my bike.
