Live Breathe Skate- A Nice Light Snack

The latest from Mike Garvin’s website Live Breathe Skate is the following post; A Nice Light Snack

Its was a pretty good day for early spring skating.  This time last year we were still snowed in.  Its great to have a chance to train for a couple of weeks before the Texas Road Rash and before Run For Reach.   If you haven’t signed up for Reach yet, Do it Now!.  The temperature was around 5C, tolerable.  The wind though….the second half of the loop we were pushing wind the whole way, and a lot of wind.   Its good training value though, so I won’t complain too much 🙂
