"There's no such thing as bad weather, only weak runners."
~ Chelsea Neville
I woke up this morning and decided semi-spontaneously that I should either swim or bike before I go for my run. I debated the pros and cons of each and well, my
The movie was good; nothing spectacular, but it was entertaining enough to keep me riding for over an hour, just over 25 miles. I cycled for a straight 40 minutes and then took a breather. I hopped back on, kicked up the gear, and rode for another 28 minutes. When I was done, I was drenched! I may very well have to setup one of my standing fans early this year.
After the bike, I figured "Ok, time for my run." That's when I became aware of what was going on outside of the confines of my room's four walls; a lot of this...
Rain is one of few forms of weather that will stop me from exercising outdoors. Something about rain just gets to me. Unless I'm at home with a good book, a back porch and a comfy chair, I really don't like rain. I'll take snow instead any day of the week. But today, I looked at it differently and ran anyways. No weak runners here! Knocked off three miles in 23 minutes.
Now I am about to eat some dinner (it is cooking while I type this, yay multitasking!). Then hopefully it's back over for another attempt at 3:10 to Yuma; no promises though.
PS: If you remember, I mentioned last Thursday that I'd have some reviews early this week. I'll have a short-term review of the CEP All Sport Compression Calf Sleeve tomorrow. I may push the short term review of my bike trainer to next week in order to give myself some more time to get rides in on it and form a fuller opinion.
Questions1. How did your training week start off? Wrong side of the bed?, or like a rocket?
2. Are you a weak runner? Is there a type of weather (precipitation or temp) that will stop you from going outdoors?
Rain normally stops me. I presume hail, sleet, tornadoes, and hurricanes would stop me. Temps over 90 F are too much, and anything around 0 F gets a bit cold.
3. How are you at multitasking? Do you own it?, or are you a one-thing-at-a-time type person?
On a grand scale, I am the worst multitasker EVER - I go from one project to another, but once I switch, that last one is lost. On a minor scale, I always tend to be cooking and blogging, eating and organizing, cleaning and brainstorming for work, working and writing workout schedules, etc. I'm odd.
Stay fit. Stay healthy.
