Perseverance

Road Bike 16 miles
Run 5 miles

I went to bed last night thinking that I would take at least a day or two off from biking. When I woke up this morning though and saw that the weather was still the same - windy, cold, and sideways rain - I felt this strong urge to get back out there and face these conditions head on, hoping to get rid of that awful frustration that I felt after yesterday. And thus I put myself back out in this mess on my bike. It went much better this time though. I was pushing 11 or 12 mph into the same winds that cut me down to 7 or 8 yesterday. And today I got to enjoy the tailwind (yesterday there was no wind for the first half of my ride when it would have been a tailwind) the entire way home.

After washing this frustration out of my system with a quick little one hour ride I went on a short Perseverance Trail run. I was hoping for less snow but this trail is still covered completely once you get past the first mile. I pushed on another mile or 2 in the snow but it was just too deep and annoying to continue any further. I love running in the snow but this late in the season the snow is just too choppy and punchy to be enjoyable. 2 months ago I was loving the fact that my first winter in Juneau was breaking all kinds of snowfall records, but right now I'm really wishing more trails were clear.

Damn, you're gettin in some great workouts. My legs would feel like rubber if I tried to run after biking that long.

Speed workout went great.

and yes, it does take the body some getting used to, with a full-time job. Oh how I would love to just run, ice, massage, eat, sleep and repeat.
