What do you do when there’s storms coming and you really need (want) to train? Well you try to beat the storms. Basically the object of the game is to get in some type of run and not get struck by lightning. Most people would ask did you look at the radar before getting out. Our response would be yes, but we thought we could out run it. For those of you that don’t know, I turn in to a track star when there is some thunderstorms coming after me. Tonight we only got in 2.6 before having to call it quits. When we started, it was just sprinkling. As we continued on, the rain got heavier. We only turned around once we heard thunder. We did get to experience some nerve wracking lightning bolts. This is the point where I turned it on, sprinting like a champ to the car. I actually don’t mind running in the rain, I actually like it. It’s not ideal but something about running in the rain can make a person feel pretty cool. Maybe it’s the fact other people think you are crazy and you can respond back with I’m bad like that! Ha!
Two more training days left this week. I took Monday off from running and decided to go rock climbing. I really enjoyed it. It was fun to do something different. Rock climbing is all core strength so it was nice to find out I actually do have some muscles to lift myself up the wall.
The rest of this week is focused on speed training. Getting ready to run a fast course this weekend!
