All in Athlete Style

Whenever I hit the gym, I take my little satchel of stuff with me around from area to area.  Carrying a lock to the gym seems heavy and the NY'er in me never likes to leave my valuables out of sight.  So what's in that little bag (usually a "sack pack" from a race expo) you see next to my treadmill?

So many people complain about how indoor bike training is SO BORING. We disagree. Ok, so riding in place, in your bedroom or basement, doesn't exactly compare to whizzing up and down mountains, but it doesn't have to be something to dread. And it just might make you a stronger cyclist.

I have something to confess. I've gotten into the habit of devouring embarrassing amounts of chips after long days on the bike. Last weekend, I knocked back an entire bag of Sea Salt Lundberg rice chips, including all of the crumbs. Even though I can justify all day long that I deserve those 600 calories of salty carbs, I know my body needs more nourishment than that after a 4 hour ride. 
Last month Bec and I visited Las Vegas for the Super Sprint Triathlon race and also to visit Interbike, the yearly cycling industry trade show.  From the latest time trial bikes to training wheels and bells - it seemed like everything bike related was represented at the show.

In some parts of the world, spring is here! As Bec keeps reminding me it's still wintery in the Northeast and other parts of the US. But with April around the corner, I thouht I'd share some spring style ideas to get you ready for when the warm weather arrives.
