Another Tuesday gone by and another spin session over. It was just Rich and Myself who showed up again this week. With people being busy around Christmas I guess it can be forgiven this time. Anyway, we did the Carmichael climbing video. I really liked this video especially compaired to last weeks spinerval tape. It was fun, more people need to come. Posted by Picasa

Monday Night Ride Report

Tonights ride was a challenge to say the least. The cold temperatures weren't bad at all, but the snow and ice proved to be a real problem. I figured the snow would have compacted somewhat after Saturday and Sunday being clear and sunny, but the ice under the snow is now harder, but still not strong enough to stay on top of. I ended up cutting the ride short, and returning home via the road. This may be the end of the mountain rides until the snow melts a bit.

Mountain Bike Ride

I went on a mountain bike ride today, or should I say I took my bike for a walk. There have been some 4x4s to the gas wells, and the ruts are ridable. Some parts of the woods are ridable, where there isn't an icy crust. The areas that are open (no trees) are too difficult to ride because of the layer of ice... you can't get on top of it, and there is too much resistance to plow through it.
The ride was fun, despite the amount of walking, and maybe by Monday the conditions will change for the better. I may try again tomorrow, for no other reason than to get outside.

Another spin session

On Tuesday night it was only Rich and I at the trainer session. It was my first time doing a Spinnerval video and it was miserable. I thought this was a time of year for easy base training or complete time off of the bike (god forbid). It was actually sort of funny doing one of these videos with someone else and being able to see someone else struggle with you while the people on the video spin the huge gears, that the video tells you to use, without breaking a sweat. Anyway, it was a good time.

Have mercy

The Title of this Post describes the feeling you have when doing this particular Jacobson tape. Have mercy was the video choice for last evenings indoor festivities. This is a 2 hour session but we opted to only do 1 hour due to time constraints as well as physical. It is amazing how isometric squats load your quads with lactic acid after 50 minutes of a heart pounding leg burning workout. Hope to see you all next week.

If this is the Indiana Cycling blog I thought I should post a team picture to make it official. So here we are in all of our glory
