Plug, Plug, Plug
***Sorry Code Geeks out there - I have no clue how to make this clip fit. The fact I even got the clip in is amazing! I'm sure it's driving you nuts and I will receive emails on how to correct.***
OK, so I didn't make the daYum Youtube video. Actually, there is a blurry piece of my suit and sunglasses running off the side but you can't tell it's me. Dang it! Reminder, must do better job of mugging for the camera. We'll see if I can make the final cut on NBC!
A break in the weather around these here parts means one thing - BIKE RIDE! We've been 50/50 on rain for at least a week. We took our chances and were mostly successful. We got hammered by some rain for ~15ish minutes. Opted to push through rather than wait for it to pass. While it may have slowed down our average, the cool rain was refreshing, actually. I DO hate the feeling of water sloshing in my shoes, though...and I had on cycling shorts not tri shorts so I had a full-on wet diaper. It was foul. I did, however, have a tri top on. I looked like a wet busted biscuit. It was a good look at the end...see NO pictures.
After the slosh fest it was the great debate...to swim or not to swim, that is the question. Hells yes, go to swim. Then I got into the car and it hit me, I'm tired. Crap, OK, go to swim for an hour, then. Done! Upon further review of our ride route we have determined that some of the hills we were hitting were 10% grade average with a 13% grade kicker, just to get to the top. No wonder my legs weren't so fond of fins. Sheesh.
Track workout on tap, please let it rain sideways, please let it rain sideways....no luck, it's track time, off I go.
