Here in the southeast we’ve been rather dry and have needed some rain. The trails have been super dusty and every creepy crawly is out hunting for water scaring the women folk to death. My coach started ramping up my training for the Trans North Georgia Adventure race (the TNGA) and of course, the very first hard training session I had, it poured. Couple this with my new heavy mountain bike gear and whew doggy…my legs hate me now
Generally I’d bitch and moan about this but we need the rain really, really bad and I need to get adjusted to dealing with showers. So each training ride I did for the past four or five days has been me dealing with a torrential downpour and then the sun coming out causing all sorts of mad humidity.
The other adjustment is getting the gear right on my bike. My new setup has me rather front weighted which has lent itself to two things:
So I’m adjusting.
Generally I do not take many pictures while training however with the rain and pretty views I had to snap a few. Enjoy!
I’m going to be reviewing and writing up all my heavy gear on my bike soon enough. It’s gonna be a tight week with focusing on the TNGA and of course, that thing you have to do to earn money but I’ll have it up very soon!
