A Simple Running Log

Training for 3/14/17

Filed under: Uncategorized — aschmid3 @ 5:19 pm

Today got even colder and windier, or at least it seemed that way. I was putting off the short run on the schedule as long as possible, hoping it would magically get warmer and less windy, but that never happened.

In the mid-afternoon, the guy from the bike shop called and said my bike was ready to pick up. I called Clark and he said he was on his way back from a short work trip. So I went out and did an easy lap around the 4.5-mile loop before he got home.

It was pretty miserable running into the wind. And when I wasn’t running head-on into it, it was trying to blow me over.

Anyway, other than a piddly little 2-miler tomorrow, that was it for Shamrock training. Done.

Clark’s old bike was also ready for his dad to pick up, so his dad came with us to the bike shop too.

So now all of our bikes are home. This is my first real road bike, a Specialized Amira, plus aero bars, clip-in pedals, two water bottle cages and a little bag holding stuff to fix a flat tire.

If only biking-friendly weather was here too. I really wish tomorrow and Thursday were going to be nicer, since I have no running to do. Maybe next week will be better.
