Love Thy Trainer
I just had a great session on the trainer….words I never thought I could say…but when the roads are icy with snow & ice & sleet storms coming every 2 to 3 days, it’s a matter of loving what you have, and not what you want.
My training has been derailed due to work: an expected but unhappy by-product of my profession. On the flip side I’ve been walking 9-12 miles a day–at work. Yes, I’ve tracked this on the pedometer. Hard concrete floor and dress shoes are an unfortunate combination, and my feet and lower legs have ached for the last 10 days. Yet now I’m less that 5 miles from 2000, and 34 miles from Heather, who will probably read this and head out the door with her studded ice tires to bury me a little more.
So, one goal almost down, and then Heather falls into my sight line. 13 days left, and foul weather is predicted. I wonder if the threat of losing the bet will motivate Heather to climb on her trainer?
