Harbingers of spring

Harbinger is such a good word.

Time change!

Riding with exposed skin.

Big winds.

I pulled the bike off the trainer and rode!!!

Okay.  Enough exclamation points.

I ought to mention a couple of things.  The trainer seems to have improved some things, not so much others.  The most notable is cadence.  Of course you can’t really get an accurate average on the road.  But I realized that when I was steadily pedaling and not climbing, I was running at about 10 rpm higher than before.

It didn’t do a lot for endurance.  It did do some for strength.  I’ll probably be back on the trainer this week.  It doesn’t appear the weather will be cooperative.  It’s really still winter.
