Just warming up...

Well, we have been pretty lucky so far in 2015 with reasonable temperatures for winter. The lack of snow has also kept the running ways clear so I have left most of my winter training outdoors.

Last year I ran primarily on the treadmill so my speed stay consistent but my endurance suffered so it will be interesting to see how my early season races go with this change in year over year training?

So running has been going well again this off-season but once again the trainer has been collecting dust. I looked at my log from last year and I didn't get rolling on the bike until mid March. I wasn't happy with my bike splits for much of 2014 so I hope I can get motivated soon and have an extra solid month under my belt before 2015 duathlon season. 

Of course, if this mild winter continues, I should be outside very soon which will be a big advantage for someone that dreads the trainer as much as I do!
