Without much else to do in the few days that remain before school starts, I have been scoping out my new ‘hood. Yesterday, I walked over to the rock gym at the Manhattan Park Health Club (just eight minutes away). The facility was tiny by Boulder standards, but I think having an indoor gym at my disposal will be key to maintaining my sanity between classes and braving NYC insanity.
Training in the city might be difficult, but I’m determined. I’ve already figured out my first ride: across the Brooklyn Bridge out to Coney Island and back (about 30 miles). My bike should be delivered today and ready to ride tomorrow (fingers crossed).
If all goes well, I plan to get in über-shape in time to compete in Staten Island CX this fall.
