Bad Winter For Cycling

This winter was the pits for cycling around me.  I got out on Dec 6th for a nice 30 mile ride, froze my butt off New Years Day for 12 miles and finally today I got out for 28 miles.  I was sucking gas the whole way,  my legs had no power,  I was constantly having to down shift, even all the way into granny to get up some pretty wimpy hills.  I have been spending some time on a trainer, but I have just found out it's not the same as when your wheels are on pavement.  I have some work to do, but I love the sport and not afraid of the work or the miles.  Lets just hope it stops snowing and the roads dry out.

Winter has broken and I have been on my bike 4 out of the last 5 days. The legs are a little weak, I have been sucking air pretty good a few times and going up the hills I have to get down into Granny, but darn it feels good to have my butt in the saddle.
