Hoping Not To Drown

Bike Commute 3 miles

Yesterday:
Run 12 miles
Bike 7 miles
Lift 18 lifts
-3 sets of 12 reps.

I think I might start swimming for some of my training. I don't really know how to swim, but I need something to add to my workouts right now. The weather has been horrible for biking for about a month now, but not enough snow yet for xc skiing. I figured by mid December I would be skiing 5+ hours per week but I haven't even been able to ski once at all yet. Thus the extra workout time has gone exclusively into running. This isn't necessarily a bad thing to be racking up the mileage on foot but now that we have some icy slushy slop on the ground it's harder and and harder for me to do my running on trails so it's really hard mentally to stay excited about running 100+ miles per week as it becomes more and more on roads. I wish I still owned a swimming suit and goggles. I guess I might have to go shopping soon.
