Three Things Thursday

  1. Why is it that when you lean forward on your bike to drink from your aero bottle that it is the perfect position for all of the snot to promptly run out of your nose?  Lets just say that I’m getting good at the farmer blow (aka snot rocket)…
  2. The weather in Calgary has been conspiring against us lately.  It will be beautiful in the day, with thunderstorms rolling in just as it is time to leave work.  Fingers crossed for some nice weather this afternoon as I have a two hour ride.
  3. Yesterday I ran some half marathon pace intervals over lunch.  My legs were zonked and it was so hard to hold pace.  After I was done running I was waiting at an intersection to cross and I actually had to sit down on a nearby ledge it was that hard to stand up.  Then jump to 2:00 pm where we had a fire drill at work.  And I work on the 30th floor.  If my legs weren’t unhappy before that, they sure were unhappy after that.  Very tight calves today!

Snot rockets, tired legs and a fire drill. I think it's more than the weather that is conspiring against U!

No wonder your legs are tired, holy yikes, hiking down stairs from the 30th Floor would tire out anybody!

The weather is crazy here too, Mother Nature is sure showing her power, earthquakes, tornado's and green skies, it has been an interesting week.

We're having some crazy weather in eastern Ontario too. The rain is definitely against us!
(well, and the earthquakes too...I ended up with a little "cross-training" in the form of walking yesterday since they had to shut down the train just in case there was an aftershock)

I hate how fire drills always happen on the worst days!

I work on the 30th floor as well and one of the most sore my legs have ever been was after going down the stairs for a fire drill!

Wow 30 floors of stairs! You sure did get a workout in! Hope you are able to get out for the ride today!
