It's a beautiful thing.

The problem is the room gets so hot that I sweat like a pig. the lycra & jersey combo makes the most sense and is the most comfortable, but I hate walking in like I'm trying to be a pro racer. Last week I wore lycra and jersey and 3 people in the room asked if I "raced". I was way to embarrassed to answer that question.
baggies are too hot and khaki shorts leave a noticable sweat ring in the crotch area.
And then there is the issue of what to wear in route to the spin class. I don't own any sort of sweat or work out pants. So far my messenger knickers do the trick but I get a lot of looks from the meat head weight lifters.
I'm not a fan of the gym. It probably boils down to the fact that I don't like people. There. I said it.

This mornings dawn patrol can be described as "Cold Smoke". It was freezing but the snow was some of the best of the year.
Rob captured this pic from his cell phone. Getting to the top just as the sun was rising.
The low quality video makes it look like BigFoot or maybe the Chupacabra. Both are real.

That's what I've been asking people around the office today to help w/ the pain.
Rachelle took me on a "run" on Monday. I haven't run more than 100 ft in like 10 years so I kinda expected some soreness. I just didn't expect my calf muscles to rip off the bone. We ran for about an hour and a 15 min on the trails around Corner Canyon.
I felt fine yesterday and a little sore this morning but as the day has gone on, I'm feeling it more and more.
I'm a loser. I need to mix up my training more. I think running one day a week will help me get back in riding form before March.

Does anyone know the best way to add resistance to a set of basic rollers? I've heard placing a rolled up towel under the rear roller will do the trick but it seems like a great way to catch the house on fire.

But here is the thing. Ben, the only non-cyclist in the group, is and always will be the fastest climber. It's weird. I have no idea how he maintains his fitness over the Summer/Fall months. He was able to put significant distance between all of us without coming close to redlining it. The guy is a freak. At one point, I managed to catch up to him or at least within talking range and ask how he stays so fit. His reply was disturbing. "I sit around and eat crap". The thing is, he wasn't joking. In fact, at the top of the first lap, he busted out a baggie of chocolate chip cookies. It was 7:30am and he was sugar loading on cookies.
I've joked about giving him a road bike and making him time trial up Suncrest to see what time he could post. I wouldn't be surprised if he could break 20 min on his first try (north side). This spring, as soon as the road is dry, I'm going to do that. I must know what he can do on the bike.
Genetics go a long way I guess. Some have it. Some not so much.
