In case you were wondering what I looked like when I went out running in negative 13 degrees windchill a week ago, this was me before the run. Sexy, eh? I wore my gloves on and off. My hands get soooo hot!
This was this past Saturday. A lot of the girls from the Swifts had a half marathon on Sunday, so Saturday was a rest day for them. It was only the 4 of us!
It was gorgeous out, and it was actually warm. By warm, I mean NOT -13 degrees. Maybe 25 degrees?
7 miles later…
A soy chai w/ a gluten free pb cookie paired with wonderful conversation. I love my Saturday morning long runs!
In other news… We finally got our trainers in the mail! Just in time for the weather to get warmer, right? haha
Sidenote: We paid for these ourselves!!
(Please excuse my empty living room and the crappy light. We are still decorating, but it does leave lots of room for the bike/trainers! I might post a better pic in the morning with natural light.)
I spent all weekend riding my bike! I love it! It seems like it is a lot harder to pedal on trainer than it is outside. It is a little loud, but not that bad a all. I was expecting it to be too loud to watch TV. I want to get a smooth tire, and I know that will help with the noise level.
Also, my hubs put aerobars on my bike, and I used them for the first time. I know, I can’t believe I did my half ironman last year without aerobars too.
I love the fact that I don’t have to drive to the gym to get a good bike workout in when the weather is bad. I can just put on a movie and spin away!
Do you have a trainer? How is your winter/spring training going? Is it getting warmer where you are? I hope it gets warmer here soon!
P.S. It was great hearing from some of you regarding some of your ABC’s! I’m glad you don’t think I’m a freak now that you know a little bit more about me as well.
