Mother Nature, you are really messing up my tri training! As a novice tri competitor (and I use the term “competitor” loosely) I need to get my butt on my bike and ride in the great outdoors. The rain, however, is a big problem.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I love to run in the rain but cycling in the rain? It’s too wet, too cold and too dangerous for the novice that I am. I know there there are Spin classes I could take, the stationary bike at the gym I can ride or the bike trainer I can hook up at home but it’s not the same.
If I’m riding my bike I want to be outside, on the road, as pathetic as I am with my inadequate gear shifting and crazy hand signals to cars that only I can decipher.
So please, Mother Nature, can you give a girl a break?
Now go run! or ride!
