Snow, snow and more snow…..

This has to be one of the worst winters in the Boston area ever. According to the Weather people on TV we are in the top 10 of just about every category at this point and heading for number one. We have had over 80 inches of snow and there is a storm coming this weekend that is supposed to drop another 12-18 inches.

With all of this snow getting in run training has been difficult to say the least. The last time I ran was a week ago Saturday. That was the beginning of the last storm we had so I ran in the snow. Actually my 3 or 4 last runs have all been with it snowing. Running in the snow in the dark and cold is just not fun. So, what do you do when you can’t get out? Well, a lot of people jump on the Treadmill, or as I call it the Dreadmill. I hate the Treadmill, it is just torture.

Instead of getting on the Treadmill I’ve made this a bike intensive week. I have been on the bike everyday this week. I’ve used Trainer Road, Zwift and ErgVideo. A little over 5 hours with varying intensities. By the end of the week I will probably be over 8 hours in the saddle….
