Another year is coming to a close in the Kittitas valley. Winter has been with us since the middle of November making outdoor rides tough unless you have a set of studded tires on your bike.
As you bring the year to a close think about what you accomplished on your bike (bikes) this year. What were the best and worst parts? What could you have done better? What can you do to change your training in 2011?
The hardest thing this time of year is to control your diet so you don't gain too much off season weight. I struggle with that, especially during the holidays. Get your cross training work outs in or jump on the indoor trainer. Join a gym or go to the spinning classes at the bike shop on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 5:00.
Most of all I hope you have a joyous Christmas season and a happy New Year and I'll see you somewhere on the road or trails in 2011.
