My off season focus thus far has been cycling. I know I can make big gains in this department, and am motivated to do so. With that in mind I've learned to love my time on the road with the 'real deal.' You know...actual cyclists, as opposed to us tri-geeks ;) The only chance I get to catch my breath is when there's a mechanical issue.
Since returning from the midwest I swore I wouldn't complain or utter the words "I'm freezing" for at least 6 weeks. I've been tempted, VERY tempted, but 50's certainly doesn't compete with sub20 degree days or weather reports that include the words "wind chill." Nevertheless, it's been cold enough to get my ass onto the trainer for my interval training sessions.
