Riding in the rain

23 07 2009

One of the things I love about IM training is facing and overcoming fears. I have always been leary of riding in the rain. Rainy days I would just hop on the trainer and stay dry. Today Paul and I had a free morning w/ kids at Grandma & Grandpa’s overnight. We woke up to cloudy skies but decided to risk it. Around mile 4 the drizzle started. By mile 8 or so it was all out rain. It rained pretty hard for a good 10 – 15 miles. We were wet and cold but sucked it up and got most of the ride done. We cut it about an hour short so I had to finish up a little bit on the trainer, but for the most part I sucked it up and got through and outside rainy ride with no problem. Now that’s a little HTFU! 42 miles today, only another 70 miles to build : )
