Just when I was second guessing my decision to do another long trainer ride, I opened up the blinds to discover it was snowing. Yes, snowing. On the first day of Spring no less. Here is the forecast from Weather.com:
I've taken a little flack from fellow triathletes for doing so much indoor training. I've been told to HTFU and bike outside, but when it's perpetually in the 30s and 40s, and feels like 20s, there isn't enough HTFU to make it work.
I'm off for my 60-mile trainer adventure. At least I'm developing a level of mental toughness that will most certainly come in handy on race day.
