weather permitting ...

I don't know about you, but I like to change things up a bit when I head to the gym, especially if I am confined to the gym. (I am sure this is part of the reason why I enjoy tri training so much.)

Today was no different. I didn't want to run too much as we are supposedto have softball later tonight (weather permitting). I didn't want to just bike and I didn't want to swim two days in a row. So I tried something different ... ran 1 mile, biked approximately 30 minutes, ran another 1 mile. To top it off, I did some strength training (ST) on the upper body and core region. I was dying at the end of my second run. It was already after 1pm and I was so hungry. I hadn't eaten since breakfast at 7. oops.

It's supposed to rain for the next four days starting later tonight. This drives me crazy because I was hoping to join the cycle group thursday evening. But, a part of me hopes the rain comes earlier tonight, so softball is cancelled .... which means I would be able to watch Game 3 of the NBA Finals on a friend's new HD TV! Go Celtics!

Today's Workout: Streak Day 10
ORN: 1 mile, 11:07
OCN: 9.79 miles, 27:00, 21.75mph
ORN: 1 mile, 11:40

Don't let a little rain prevent you from enjoying the group ride ;-) They say that a multi brick workout is a great training session! Well done!!!

If you ride in the rain, make sure that you dry all of your nuts, bolts, and chain afterwards so that they do not rust.

yeah, stay off of the painted strips also! ;)

Doesn't the rain suck?? I'm supposed to go see my fav band tomorrow and it looks like it's going to rain and since it's outdoors it won't happen in rain...

All that training...and softball, too? That's pretty hardcore.

I would avoid riding in the rain...but that's just me.

Here in TN we are loving the rain because it has cut into the 95 degree weather!

Great workouts and I hope that the rain does stop for you on Thursday!

Take Care

Oooooo thanks for the reminder! I've gotta go see who won the game. I fell asleep when it was tied 20/20 LMAO!

Mixing it up is fun. I think that's why I like Zumba so much.

I want to try a workout like that sometime. You inspire me. :)

That sounds like a great workout! I hope the rains clear out so you can ride on Thursday!

Too bad it ain't going to be a white wash now. I'm hoping for a Celtics win in Game 4 so that they can take this home and finish it.

The rain sucks, but I'd trade your high temps for ours any day though!

It just keeps raining here so my bike has gotten no love since Friday. I miss my bike....sigh...

Here in NC we would welcome a little rain! Way to mix things up at the gym. Hope the Celtics can pull one out tomorrow.

Nicely done on the workout! I heard that the midwest is supposed to get a lot of rain this week.
