No work out today

Friday, February 22, 2013

I should have done the Week 2: Day 1 workout for the 5K Your Way program today. I woke up at 5:30 with a sore throat and I decided sleep was more important. I do not regret that decision.

I was elected to my church's vestry last weekend, and this weekend is the vestry retreat. We will be at a local hotel tonight & tomorrow. My intent was to ride my bike to the hotel, but I suspect those plans have been derailed as well. If the only problem was my sore throat, I'd still do the ride. (I subscribe to the "listen to your body" theory: unless I have a fever or an illness that makes me wobbly on my feet, I'll still exercise. And although I'm tired, I'm not weary or wobbly.) Nope, it looks like the weather gets the credit this time around.

There's a high-wind warning posted for this afternoon. I live in a windy place, so "high wind warnings" usually mean "get the livestock in the barn, batten down the hatches, and head for the root cellar." NOAA is predicting 25-35 mph winds with 45-55 mph gusts at the time I would be riding to the hotel. The gusts are what concern me. I've been nearly blown off the trail before during my commutes. That wind might be too much for me, especially since I'd be toting a messenger bag.

But even as I write this, I cannot help myself: Imagine those winds as a tailwind. Wheeeeeee!
