It's Too Damn Cold!
Thursday, December 08, 2011
Wake me up in March! 39F and F as in Fucking Cold! It's too cold to be swimming outside even in a heated pool. I just couldn't hack it and gave up swimming today.
200 Swim / 200 Pull / 200 Kick / 4x50's Swim on Minute (800)
The workout was to be a 500/400/300/200/100 each getting faster by 100.
So I did the 500 and was super slow. Not a descend at all. I came in on 6:55! Left on the 8 minutes. Then as I was swimming the 400 I realized I was just not in the mood. That and I was struggling. At the 300 mark I was at 4:05. I called it quits. (800/1600) It's just too damn cold out!
At least I got some cross training in yesterday! Hit the gym for the 12pm Group Power Class and got talked into staying for the 1:15 Group Kick Class. My tee shirt was soaked after 2 hours of working out. But yet I still went outside for a quick run. 2.28 miles. By the end of the run the cold front had arrived. The last .28 miles it started to rain. By the time I got back inside the gym it was raining pretty good. It didn't last long but the temperature dropped radically. I think by 20 degrees in just an hour.
I don't think I'll be running today. Actually can't decide what I want to do. Group Ride (Spinning) or just do something else on my own? Don't think I'm in the mood for Ride. Need something less leg intensive.
