tis the season

Now that the Christmas holidays are behind us, it is time to get down to work and dial in the training for the 2010 season. I am signed on for another year with power training guru TJ Woodruff, which should be fun in a painful kind of way. My training plan will be geared towards the BC, 7-day stage race, which is held the last week of June. 24 hours of Nine Mile, Dakota 50, Cheq Fat Tire, Ore 2 Shore, a few WORS races and a few road races are also on the books. Most of the training will be done on the trainer until the roads clear, except for PUG night at Lowe's Creek (feel free to join in).

Going to start things off on a good note with a week long training camp in Tucson the second week of January. I have a race scheduled the first Saturday of the trip then a few road and mtb rides and of course a trip to the top of Mt. Lemon. The trip will be a nice way to split up the winter and allow me to stay focused till spring when Jim and I will be ramping things up with some killer weekend training rides on the cold, sloppy roads South of Mondovi.

Gave my legs a little Christmas present after everyone went to bed. Had to make sure I remembered how to spin the pedals. Race form is a ways off, but the legs seem to still have a little Diesel power left. I will try to get some power files from the training rides posted on a regular basis along with some video from the Pug rides. Thanks for tuning in and happy holidays!
