Wind and hills pretty much sums up the group ride today out at Lake Stanley Draper. The weather has definitely turned warm here in Oklahoma and it is a welcome change. I absolutely hate the wind, but I can deal with it when the temps are in the high 70s and low 80s. When I say wind, I am talking about 20+mph sustained and gusts of 30-40mph. That's pretty much what you get in Oklahoma during the spring. It can only make us stronger, right?!? We ended up logging 20.55 miles after work so I count that as a pretty successful workout.
Another successful bike ride today after a day off yesterday. I did go to the gym and get in some strength training so that was a nice addition to the schedule this week. I really neglect the strength training aspect of my schedule when it gets busy. I know it's not what I should be doing, but that's the part I like the least of my training schedule. I have been much better about stretching and doing body-weight strength exercises at home lately.
Group swim tomorrow and I am actually really looking forward to another swim. It is the spot where I am seeing the biggest gains and where I need the most work. It's funny how I went from absolutely dreading the pool to actually kinda liking it now. Kinda. Let's not get too carried away. Hope everyone is having a great start to the week. Only 2 more days of work this week. Thank you holidays!
