End of Winter

Good bye mister snowman... It has been a soggy, cold, yicky couple of weeks for endurance training! Snow, slush, sleet, muck, wind, puddles (well, lakes really) and COLD have made for a few 'sufferfest' style weekend workouts. This little snowman was on my car when I came back from a 3hour plus snow run 2 weekends ago. Made me smile for sure:)

Luckily I have a few friends who are into suffering along with me so we managed to get in a couple of solid weekends of endurance miles regardless of the weather. The past few weekends have looked like this:
Friday 1.5-2hour LSD (inside torture but warm and dry!) spin
Sat 3-3.5hour LSD trail run/snow treks:)
Sun 2-3hour slushfest bikes

My sauna has never brought me more pleasure:)

Here is one of my bike riding sufferfest buddy's post ride bums...any guesses who this could be?

We just wrapped up our winter session of Bootcamp and we are all looking forward to the spring session now!! Details are on the elm website and registration is filling up quickly so be sure to check it out and sign up if you are planning to join us!

Boys against the girls! We went inside to Island Pilates and Fitness last Thursday cause the trees were blowing over outside in 80k gusts! Such a beautiful space to hide out from the storm!

This past week we had a fun Members only event at Mountain City Cycle...after hours bike mainteance night with the crew from MCC! Good times, great skills and a fun group to spend the evening with:) Thanks so much to John and Brent for staying after hours to help out the crew with their repairs!

Marina at the helm...

Nicole working the rear wheel...

We have more awesome Members events coming up this spring including a Spring partay and fashion show at Lotuswear on April 4th...and another afterhours bike repair night at MCC on April 27th.
Now...crossing fingers for a snowfree weekend of big runs and rides!!!
