Strength training is an essential part of training leading into race season to build your baseline fitness and avoid injury. Team Envision sponsor Will Karousis of Tri-Hard Endurance Sport Coaching coached us through great workout at Naomi’s Basement Studio.

 

 Indoor Cycling at Grace Bicycles

Team Envision members have been enjoying weekend indoor cycling workouts sponsored by Roy Cervantes at Grace Bicycles in Holliston this winter. We bring our own bikes and set them up on Roy’s CompuTrainers for a spirited ride through Lake Placid, French Valleys, Mallorca, SoCal, and some of the alpine stages of the Tour de France.  Sessions last 90 minutes and we often take a team run on the bike trail behind Grace Bicycles after, to make a brick.

In December, Melissa led us on a running tour of Boston’s holiday lights. Our route took us through downtown, Boston Common, Boston Public Garden, the Commonwealth Avenue Mall, Faneuil Hall, and Christopher Columbus Park. We capped off the evening with dinner and drinks.
