Just a bit windy....



Today the alarm went off at 5:30 - rain. Lots of rain. Back to sleep. Woke up leisurely and enjoyed my Sunday morning, planning on getting the first part of my brick done on the trainer. But the trainer? The rain has stopped so why not go out and enjoy the sunny weather? Oh yeah, because it's GUSTING 20-30mph. Awesome. But Jim, Karen, and myself decided to brave the hurricane like weather and ride outside.




At one point Karen and I had to actually get off of our bikes and walk them because the gusts where so strong we where blown into the shoulder. We looked at this ride as a character building ride :) But the way back - much better.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!

Holy wind! That is intense, definitely a character building ride for sure!

You've always got the best training tools (swimplan & music), I'm getting some of those podcasts now! Thanks!

Now that would be an IRONMAN swim!!
Have a feeling the swim leg would be cut in November if it looked like that.

I doubt it - they would just put up the red flag after the swim :) Ha!

The Weather Channel called. They want you to cover their next tropical storm season. All I can say is: No thanks, it looks like a good day for an indoor workout.

Well done. Its been crazy typhoon windy out here too, but Knight and I are getting thru it!! I think I would enjoy a few more gears sometimes or wait, I think I would enjoy more than just the one speed some of the time but then I guess what doesn't kill me.....

Grt pics. I gotta start taking pics on my daily adventures.
