Dear God-I know I haven't been perfect, but please fix the weather. #TotalFratMove
First day of spring has come and gone. I saw a robin in the front yard today. Poor guy was frozen solid.
My toe warmers are almost gone. I've worn and washed my winter running gear more times than I am willing to count. I've been riding in my garage for FIVE months. They say if it doesn't kill you, it just makes you stronger. Well, I'm almost dead.
What have I learned on this long...long...winter:
1. Buy one set of stellar cold weather gear (not four sets of mediocre)...and wear it all the time. Seriously. Keep it dry. Keep it clean. And wear the hell out of it.
2. Make your time count. Swap four hour rides for ball-busting 90 minute rides. Watch your power soar.
3. It's never too cold out. See #1
4. There is nothing like a run through the woods after a fresh snowfall.
Read a great article today on the things that happy people do differently. Thought I would include it below. I consider myself to be a fairly happy guy...and I see a lot of myself and in the list. Plenty that I can work on...especially #19. I don't think triathletes can sneak by on #19.
