All the roads here run east to west -- or west to east depending on your viewpoint. :) So, there is no getting away from the wind. You have to pick your path and then gut it out. The wind blows from the west 99% of the time, and today was no different. The gusts literally stopped me in my tracks. I was running in one spot -- I thought to myself: I may as well be on the treadmill. Then -- something happened inside me -- I sort of forgot about being angry and just dealt with each moment as it came.
And, the way back was awesome!! I flew!! I felt like bloody Steve Prefontaine!!!! HAHAHAHA!! Total miles for today was 9.17. I had done my new core workout at the gym just prior to my run. I am inching ever so closer to an actual chinup --Oh I am going to be so excited when I do one. I'll probably have to interrupt other people at the gym just to tell them!! hee-hee.
Swimming this morning was great too -- I felt like a superhero in the water. The bullet was back in action!! ---Legend in My Own Mind --- :) :) :) :) Warm up, drills (my fave is the fisted drills), then 5x300 on 30 sec rest.
Thought for the Day: Toby versus the Yak. What do they have in common?
- Both live at altitude
- Both have long shaggy hair that keeps them warm in the winter.
- A yak will nudge you in your guts if you piss it off. Toby will nudge you in your behind which will piss you off! :)
