We'll have to see what the weather holds for the next few months... sometimes the weather is mild enough to still get plenty of rides in. Sometimes the temperature is brutally low, and I stay inside and watch horrible movies while spinning on the rollers (for example, I just watched The Last Airbender, thanks to the RedBox, and it was TERRIBLE). Sometimes we get lots of snow and I attempt endeavors like snowshoeing or cross country skiing. Usually, however, we get a mix of warm and cold temps that allows snow to melt and re-freeze into unusable mixture of hardened slush. That's when I just look to the calendar and counts the days until spring.
Anyway, it's the time of year to get wrapped up in the holiday madness, get caught up on "indoor" projects, and to start looking forward to the upcoming year. Speaking of holiday madness, I couldn't believe it when I went to the lot where we've gotten our trees every year for the past few years, and they were sold out. WTF?
Getting back to thinking about 2011, I've already signed up for my first race, and I've got a big trip coming up sometime early next year too, so plenty to look forward to, and plenty of motivation to keep the training up through the cold, dark, bleary, frigid, winter days.
