This is my winter training

While all of the warm-weather riders are putting in the base miles, I'm shoveling snow. Feet and feet of snow. Work all day, then shovel the driveway. Ride the trainer in the morning, then shovel at work. At least I'm dreaming about my bike while I'm shoveling. Now, normally I wouldn't complain about so much snow-we're in a big drought, and we'll take anything we can get to keep the trails tacky until monsoons hit. BUT there is a big BUT: racing in AZ starts in January...yes, January. The theory is that the earlier racing starts, the more races you can have before the desert gets to be about 150° in April. But damn, racing in January when the only training is digging your commuter bike out of the snow to get to work...thats just mean.
