My coach pumped up my training volume a lot this week. A 4-hour ride on Tuesday, a 5-hour ride on Wednesday and a 3-hour ride (in pouring rain) yesterday. Wednesday was the only nice day out of my 3-day training block and it felt great to be in the sun with my arm warmers pulled down. Now we are back to temps in the low to mid-30's and rain. It's weird. A few months ago I would have considered 30 degrees as balmy. But all it takes is one or two nice days and I have grown soft :-)

I've done all of my secret "oh-so-pro" recovery tricks today. A pizza from Brick Road (gluten free of course), a vanilla machiatto from Starbucks, and most importantly...a nap after work!

Lowell 34-Fat Bike edition tomorrow. Hope to see lots of you there :-)
