Spring Finally

Despite a mid-day meeting at work, I was still able to get out and train today and enjoy the amazing weather. The Never-Ending Winter™ has finally come to an end.

I squeezed in a brisk 30-miler and soaked up some late-day rays. Definitely a nice change of pace from knee-warmers and long-sleeve jerseys. Winter garb always makes me feel like I can't move, so once I'm finally able to just wear bibs and a jersey, it's like night and day. I ride so much better in warm weather.

Now I just wish it would hit 85-90 for a few days so I can sweat off this extra five pounds I've somehow picked up over the last couple of weeks. I miss my mid-summer form.
