Don't B*tch to Me..........

Okay, there have been a few of us in Blogland complaining about the wind and how much we hate running in it!

Well Mother Nature must be following us via Google Reader because now I have wind, cold and rain......... Ekkkkkkkkkkkkkk!

You know that cold that just gets into your bones and makes it almost impossible to ever get warm again?

That rain that feels like pellets as it pierces your skin with every step that you take?

The wind that makes the rain come down sideways and you end up straining your neck and shoulders because you have to run with your head down the entire time, both ways????

So as of today, I am officially starting my triathlon training and going to the basement for a few miles on the trainer. Mind you my bike has been on the trainer since November and we've only connected once.

I forgot to mention that I actually lost a pound in my Biggest Loser contest last week. At this rate, I'll be down my ten pounds in ten weeks! This stuff is really hard, I'm dreaming about food.........

I like to think of the wind as resistance training and it makes us stronger. Before we know it we will all be complaining of how hot it is. Got to love Mother Nature! Enjoy you're workout, I think I'll be inside too on a treadmill at they gym!

We had tornadoes yesterday. I skipped the scheduled 6-miles completely.

Way to go! 10lbs in 10 weeks would be great!

Sounds like with that rain, you can count your run double as a run and as the swim portion of tri training. We bitched about the wind here all winter, but it sure feels good now when it is 80 degrees and that breeze comes along! Hang in there.

Did I miss a post about you coming to the dark side of tri!!! I'm not sure if you did before, but looking forward to following your training! I rode today, in the wind, again, and in the rain, again. Fun times.

Crazy May weather! I guess this is the stuff we should have had in March/April.

Naturally, it's going to be warm & toasty for my race on Sunday.

Complain, complain, complain.
