YTD I’ve had a little trouble getting going in the training arena. A certain someone who shall remain namelesshas suggested I need to HTFU and I am trying – I really am.
I have whined about “the cold” and I put that in quotes in deference to you poor, poor people living in the mid-west. My god it’s cold where you live. I have suggested that running in 40 degree weather is just not acceptable and I have simply refused to do it. I almost hate to post this but out here it was gorgeous this weekend – so beautiful. And let me tell you – it is so much easier to HTFU when the sun is shining and the road beckons than it is when the wind blows icy cold and freezes the lining of your lungs.
Saturday I went on a 50 mile bike ride and it was fantastico! I was in leg warmers and arm warmers and a windbreaker and gloves but I was not cold – I was happy. It wasn’t exactly the ride of champions – we stopped halfway through and had coffee and muffins and chatted for a while but be that as it may I rode 50 miles. After I got back I mowed the lawn, weeded and cleaned up this and that outside. I was outside all day long. The evening was uneventful but that was okay because I fell asleep on the couch at about 8:30. What a party girl! I really do need to HTFU and get a social life but that’s another story.
Today I was going to go on another ride and climb up Mt. Diablo but I decided my hind quarters took all the beating they could take on Saturday so I just ran 3 miles, instead. I guess that means I am only part of the way to HingTFU but I’m making progress. I just have to keep this guy in my head to keep up the momentum.
(warning – not work or child friendly – but funny)
1). FU to the music industry for turning our sweet little Carrie Underpants into a BS ho-bag look alike. Ick
2). Tina! – Welcome to middle age. You’re still the bomb.
3). Kanye – can I just tell you how much I hate your song Stronger? Disgusting. I thought you were supposed to be Mr. Clean. The song to your Mama was sweet and shaving Mama into your hair was…touching but that doesn’t give you a hall pass on that nasty song. Sorry.
4). Foo Fighters – ROCK ON!
