On the Trainer today (Snowing outside!)
So got on the trainer today. Did a 1 hour 'Spinervals' workout called Heavy Gear Challenge, which is a strength workout spent almost entirely in the hardest gearing, getting up out of the saddle for long stretches with some lunges thrown in the middle. Once again, they promised a tiring workout... And I got it!
This year, like last year, I will be riding for Mary Payton's Miracle - My friend Steve Kogos from Trigators informed me that his friend Joe's daughter, Mary Payton, was diagnosed a number of years back with Late Infantile Batten Disease. This is a disease with no cure, however, there are special experimental (and extremely expensive) treatments which have shown some significant signs of success! In order to assist with the costly treatments and research, Mary Payton's Miracle was created to raise money to find a cure, hopefully in time to save little Mary Payton as well as the many others affected by this terrible disease!
