And So It Begins

I’m so happy that today has arrived! Today is the start of my “real” training again. I’ve got a brand-spanking-new training plan and I’m good to go. Such a great feeling. Now, of course you know I’m not starting from “scratch” here – I’ve been training and riding all summer but things have been more focused on the easy and steady rather than focusing on intensity. But now that all my blood count and iron numbers are happily sitting in the middle of normal – it is time for me to get back to normal.

Today was actually an easy way to start a new training program: hot power yoga and an easy 45 minute ride. Things hot up on Tuesday and Wednesday with some longer rides and a bit of spicy intensity. Nothing too crazy yet since my coach wants to see how my body reacts to the intensity. I’m raring to go, but I’m following the plan and won’t be doing anything “extra” – in fact I’ve promised not to do extra intervals or to add an extra hour or two to my rides…

With this training comes thinking and planning for the cyclo-cross season. As you likely know I’ve been working hard this spring and summer to find a new sponsor or two – well sadly I haven’t had any luck so far. I can’t really wait much longer to hear back from emails and phone callsĀ  – since I need to get a new jersey, short and skinsuit design done and get this off to Champion Systems Canada for production. So this leaves me with some questions – what to do with the clothing design? Here is last year’s design:

So now I need to figure out what to do this year. I’m thinking of doing a complete re-design. But I’m not a graphic designer – so I’m looking for ideas, suggestions, references. Really if you have a suggestion – email me or post up in the comments. My favorite color is purple but not sure how this would work… I’d also like to get rid of the white…
