The west coast of the US has been recently slammed by rain (and much needed snow in the mountains).  Good for the environment; bad for training.

Most of my training during the week is in the dark.  Booooo.  Stinky gym workouts and cold road riding commutes.  I tell myself that it’ll all pay off when the spring comes and my fitness is not in the dumps.

That ride was a test of grit.

It’s been raining for 2+ days, some of heaviest I’ve seen in San Diego… and this morning: Blue Skies!!!   A quick check on the weather report tells me today will be dry – and tomorrow morning has potential!  Yippppeeee!

OK – training won’t be on the trail and instead on the road bike… but I don’t care!  I’ll be outside. 🙂img_1920
