March/winter is here


It's March and it feels more like winter than it has all...winter. It's been a flurry of coaching nordic skiing, lots of downhill skiing, some excellent mt biking, and just a few rides on the trainer.

I like doing the early road races, but this year the skiing has been too good to ignore so I haven't focused on the bike very much. I think I still have some of the top end fitness left from cross, but I don't have the base for longer road races and mountain bike races quite yet. I'll get there as the weather cooperates.

Had some of the best days skiing I have ever had including a cat skiing trip to Mt Bailey that was just ridiculous. The pictures below don't do it justice.

As the days get longer it'll be a bit more time and light to get out on the bike and get outdoors. Right now winter is treating us well and I certainly don't long for spring quite yet. It's a great time to be in Bend. Get out there and enjoy it.
