Winter, winter, lovely winter. What I like the most in winter is that special moment when you wake up, look through the window and see everything is white. That happened to me last Thursday after afternoon nap.
On the morning before that my coach Samo came to my hometown Ledine, which doesn't happen very often. Usually we go together on our bikes in Ljubljana, where he works and lives, and I do the rest of the errands in the city. Besides that there are surprisingly nice and technical trails around our capital and I love to ride there. But it’s also very often there in the wintertime, therefore also colder than in higher places. On that day temperatures were still bearable for biking and we did nice training together. Training wasn't so innocent and being a little tired I fell asleep after lunch unexpectedly. There was a rainy forecast for the afternoon and when I woke up I felt a bit confused seeing the nature through the window all covered with snow. It was a very nice feeling, which suddenly disappeared when I thought about indoor workouts, which I will need to do in next days if I stay at home.
Nevertheless it was time to do the afternoon workout with some strength exercises. I felt really excited while power sleep refilled me with energy and motivation. These kind of workouts are always done indoor no matter the outside conditions so I left the problem about staying at home and overheating on turbo trainer or going somewhere for a training camp for later. I'm sure there are many of you that can't understand why it is an issue to decide for a training camp in warm, sunny destinations. Who doesn't enjoy cycling in shorts when there is snowy winter at home? Well, believe it or or not, I don't.
Therefore I arranged myself a training room in our abandoned old house, where we used to live till I was 6 years old. I do all the indoor workouts there and besides I also have some space for keeping my bikes, tires and other equipment in one place. While I recently spent quite some time there I got an idea to introduce you my training room in details – that will follow next time. Photo material is already prepared and you can see a part of it for introduction. Whether I will write from home or some warmer place will yet to be announced.
