Wasted

My legs can't keep up with all of the storms and resulting fresh powder! After skiing 5 of the last 8 days (all but one of those days with 12-20" of new snow) I'm officially cooked. Brighton served up some awesome snow this morning and my first 3 runs were solid, but from that point on I gradually fell apart.

It's all good though. Work is heating up and I'll be stuck in the office for the rest which will be a welcome rest. If Friday's storm is a good one I should be well recovered to take advantage of the goods on Saturday. Sorry, no Cholla or Hell of the North for me this weekend. I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth as there will be plenty of opportunities to ride bikes in another week or two. Until then I'm getting all the fresh I can!

Honestly, the reality of the situation is that I have no bike fitness. I've spent all winter playing in the snow and probably have fewer than 20 rides total in the last 4 months. No intervals, zero structure, just a handful of fun rides when the opportunity presented itself with most of them taking place during my two trips to Arizona.

Enjoy life. Biking will happen when the weather is better.
