You've gotta have Spring before Summer

The weekend was a bit of a mixed bag, weather-wise, and the training was both great and blah depending on the day. Saturday was glorious - the first shorts and a t-shirt day of the year - and we had an amazing run along the lake path (1 hour, 15 minutes). Absolutely fantastic running weather, with just a little bit of a chill in the air when we took off at 7:00 a.m., and no wind at all. Later on, Cath and I took our boys (a miniature pinscher and an Italian greyhound) to the dog park and loafed while they cavorted with their oh-so-happy-to-be-outside peers. Lovely.

Sunday was another story. The rains came in overnight and our plan to join a group ride in Barrington was unanimously scuttled at 5:00 a.m. Instead, Drew and I hit up the Keiser bikes at the gym for our 2:45 ride. Surprisingly, the time went by relatively quickly, with Drew and I chatting the time away about topics big and small. I am, however, hoping and praying that the weather improves enough this coming weekend that we can actually get outside - week 10 calls for three hours in the saddle this Sunday, and, despite the good company, I'm not sure I can handle it on a stationary bike.
The crap weather is still here today, but all I have on the agenda is a swim, so no worries there. And it's my mom's birthday today - happy b-day, Ma!

  1. I suffered 4.5 hours on the trainer during my HIM training last month. It was tough. I hope you can get outside!
