Enough with the wind already!!!

Good grief, another couple days with wind gusts of around 30 mph. It is really a shame to have such beautiful weather (70's and sunny), but have all this aggravating wind. In theory, it shouldn't really affect your workout, you just go slower and adjust accordingly. The reality is that it is very stressful and discouraging, especially when you are going straight into it and feel like you're barely moving. Doing a lot more indoor bike trainer this year because of that.

Speaking of which, my computrainer is supposed to arrive today - very excited about that! I think training by power/watts will be a really good way for me to improve my biking. I'll be posting updates in the next few weeks/months regarding how that actually works out.

Other than having to do too many rides on the trainer instead of outside, things are going well this week. Getting the swims in, 60 miles of bike so far, and 11 miles of running with an 8 mile run coming later today. I've been crunching some numbers on what the total mileage for the year is looking like, I'll try to post some of that next time. Kind of fun to add it all up, and also kind of scary.
