Blowin' in the Wind

Road Bike 29 miles

Thought I was getting faster on my bike today. After 15 miles my average speed was around 19 mph and I wasn't working hard at all, but then I turned around and realized just how strong the tailwind had been. I hate wind. I was kind of hoping to get in about 3 hours of riding/running today but after riding for 1:45 I just felt like coming home and relaxing, and not being out in the wind anymore. Just one of those days I guess. I also thought about getting on the trainer for a couple hours after dinner but I'm just not in the mood for that. I'm actually never in the mood for the bike trainer, but tonight I'm not even in the mood to force myself to get on the stupid thing to get a longer workout in. Instead I'm going to surf the web, take a long shower, watch a movie, and not think about biking or running until tomorrow morning.

Hey Geoff! Looks like some brutal weather out there. I have just the race for you. Since you blew away Susitna and you like point to point/snow.

Arrowhead 135 mile ultra, here in Northern Minnesota in February. From "Ice box" International falls to Tower, Minnesota. My buddy John was first to finish on foot, but you can bike or ski just as well.
