Spinervals Recharge Trainer workout!
After a pretty tiring track workout yesterday and jury duty this morning (all of the trials got pled out by 2PM so I got to leave a bit early) and the fact that is was about 200 degrees below zero today with a heavy wind, I thought it best to finally get my first trainer workout of the new year in. So I got the bike set back up and eased into bike work with the recharge workout from Spinervals. Took it nice and easy, just trying to get some spinning in to loosen up. Tomorrow I am planning on getting in the 6.2 mile Oxon Hill Farm 10k so just wanted to get the legs moving, not kill myself. Felt pretty good with the exception of my calves cramping from time to time. Hopefully this workout got that all worked out!
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!
