I had a trainer wko today. Jen said i could go outside and do it, so i did. I wore:
Hat, winter gloves ( which made my fumbling with the computer likely comical and made my fingers freeze), long tights, two jerseys and my winter jacket. I didnt use toe booties but i could have. And all the while i was thinking..."Wonder if it will be hot in Kansas in June?" Worst thing is that i started feeling icky and kinda cold like. I have been around alot of sick people this week, sadly my dad being one of them, and since my mom cant drive and my dad is sick i did alot of parent transport to appts. And to MD offices. And around sick people. Sigh. As happy as i am to do this I keep thinking "When will i get sick now?" knock on wood.
But...as i was riding and feeling chilled i thought "Would you be feeling this way if the sun were on your back and it was 20 degrees warmer?" NO! I think its just that temperature change that affects me or our bodies. Out of a hot ( well 82, sorry Michelle!) pool, and then onto a cold bike. My body does NOT like these temperature changes and the the claminess just sets in.
And to make matters better ( not) dont you ever wish you had a month off? :) I wont elaborate.
So...I miss Texas and am keeping my fingers crossed that my nice spring 10k saturday does not include the flurries and high 30 degree temps they have forecast. But if it does, well it does. And trust me, this is not about "oh no i need to train in heat so i can race better in heat. " Its mainly about wanting to be warm!!!
Thanks for the birthday wishes, I skipped the cortisone shot thankfully and seem to be doing ok with the shoulder and the SA, even after butterfly and IM yesterday!
