I know you’re supposed to hate January but I kind of admire the intensity of this month. It’s the time of the year when I work the hardest.
It’s both back to school and new classes and for me, a countdown to spring and getting back on my bike. It’s a period of head down, working hard and getting ready. Training camp is just a bit more than two months away. I keep thinking of those hills. And after that, whatever the weather, it’s outdoor riding for me.
This isn’t a new year’s resolution kind of thing. I don’t make those. And it’s not about weight loss or about getting fit. Instead, for me, it’s part of the changing seasons of the cycling year. Not a “this year will be different” but more “this year will be like last year” with a little bit of “but better” thrown in with a hopeful smile.
In addition to riding with Chris, I’ll also be leading some training rides in Toronto for the Friends for Life Bike Rally. (You can sponsor me here. Please!)
