The holiday lifestyle that has set in over the past 2 weeks has taken quite a toll on my body. I feel tight, sore and generally lazy. Tomorrow is the beginning of my 2009 season plan. We'll see how far I make it before real life gets in the way of a couple workouts and I have to break the plan. Tonight I will try an easy spin on the trainer and some stretching to try to loosen up a bit. I'll need to work off the holiday dinners and then some to hit the weight goal for this season, but as I already found during '08 the whole W/kg thing makes a difference when the parcours turns vertical.

After not touching my bike since provincials, I decided mid-week that I'd attend the final race of the Southern Ontario CX series. The conditions were looking alright, and I could not resist another cross race before the season came to an end. That didn't mean I was going to train or even spin my legs beforehand... I just made sure the bike was in working order, did some extra stretching, and packed up to race.
