What a blast...

This time its not a blast from the past but a blast of reality...after the temps warmed up last weekend I decided it was time to head out skiing...thinking positive Tristan and I headed out for an hour. It was great high heart rates, perfect snow, and most importantly increased motivation to start getting active again. After a solid 2 months since CX State Championships it was time to start doing something....anything. The warm weather came and melted all the snow and I even thought about riding outside.

Then it hit like a box of bricks. Tues after work before heading home I checked weather.com and it actually said "Blizzard" for Sheboygan. Reality set in real fast as I thought to myself we have another 3 months of this stuff! So yesterday I brought my XO2 into work cleaned it up from 2 months ago and did a one hour ride here. It wasn't so bad as the movie Mr. & Mrs. Smith was on and Bill Street Player joined me for the occasion. We rode the Ore To Shore course. It was just like I was there....

Other than that it has been yoga once a week and skiing once a week. Andrea and I put in an offer on a sweet house in Black River south of Sheboygan so we'll see what happens there...

C'mon, don't you want to ride outside in the cold and get tendonitus??? It's sweet, highly recomended.

You did the O2S course in an hour? Man, you musta been holding back while we were skiing.
Preriding the course in January is also cheating.
