I have been asked by more than a few people if I have done any training in the rain. It’s like people want my training to be as miserable as possible. Yesterday I rode in the rain. It was miserable.

It has been three weeks since I almost died trying to conquer the Allen Street Hill. Yesterday I rode it (in the rain) and wasn’t even breathing heavy when I reached the top. It has been a combination of conditioning and just plain riding smarter.

I am at 960 miles for the spring.

Four weeks of training left.

Six weeks to RAGBRAI.

I’m getting a little anxious for it to start.
