Default MSers Training in 2014

Happy New Year everyone. And that means itís time to get going with training. I donít have any fan fare to start this year off with, I donít know what I did to piss off the idea fairy but she hasnít come to visit for a while so weíll just have to get right down to business.

Normally I donít make New Years resolutions, unless itís a resolution not to make resolutions, but this year I am going to make a resolution and that single resolution is - to enjoy the ride. If I figure out how to do that, while hammering out those intervals or straining up that hill, Iíll let you know. Wish me luck.

So, what have I been doing and whatís on the agenda for this year? Although it hasnít been snowing volumes, it has been snowing often. Half of the exercise Iíve gotten in the last two weeks has been shoveling an inch or two of snow. When it doesnít snow, Iíve been walking. The longest continuous walk Iíd done in the last decade was about a half-mile. Then a couple of weeks ago, having been inspired by a fellow Active MSer, I managed to walk continuously for about 2 miles. Iíve done it 3 or 4 more times since then. I use a walking stick and I am a total stumbling spaz at the end of the two miles, but itís a start. Thereís a move afoot to gather a group of MSers and climb Pikes Peak in 2015. Obviously, for me, itís not too early to start training.

I also managed to get out on the bike a couple of times but there is still a little too much ice and snow around for my taste. On the clear patches though, when we didnít have to ride in traffic to avoid the ice or walk when we couldnít, it was nice to be back in the saddle. With a little luck and a little more snow, I should also be able to get out on the XC skis, I hope it's sooner rather than later.

This years agenda will include at least the Colorado and New Mexico Bike MS rides and probably the Copper Triangle. I've been eying the "Waves to Wine" ride in California for a while, maybe this will be the year. I'm always looking for new and exciting rides to try, new rides in new places are part of the fun.

Take a minute if you can, and let us know what youíve been doing lately and what form your plans are taking for the New Year. Then join us as we train toward our goals, and try to have a little fun along the way to staying Active with MS.
