We have a small, but hopefully growing JDRF team headed for Killington, VT in August. It's going to be a first class ride, and I'm hoping to see more people join us. Our training rides are starting up; we'll have one in Winston-Salem this weekend, and Rides to Cure team members are welcome to join the Roaming Ride Thursday. Email me if you want details.
My training has been sub-par, to say the least. Last weekend was a bust, due to horrible weather and other (non-cycling) commitments. I'm hoping the weather gods treat me better this weekend. With Cycle NC and the Burnsville Metric on the horizon, I need some miles.
I've taken an interest in a more systematic approach to training, which has coincided nicely with my becoming a coach for our JDRF chapter's ride team. I recently took the test for my USA Level 3 coaching certification (and apparently passed, though I haven't received notification beyond seeing my name on the Web site). Through my coaching ambitions are limited to the JDRF team, I'm looking forward to having access to training information, some of which I hope to put into practice. I'll share anything noteworthy here.
