Back in the winter of 2004-05 I did a ride around Folsom Lake every week through the entire winter. Rain or shine or sub-freezing temps I got out every Wednesday and ground it out. I had no idea what I was doing at the time but it did lay the foundation to a great spring. Now that I understand the laws of specificity and have an idea about what I want to do with my bike I am heading into the winter with the resolve to get back to that routine. The last three Mondays I did rides big enough to see how i would feel for the rest of the week and am totally ready to stick it tomorrow. Now if we can just get some snow so it will be a lake again.
