3/7/2009 The Wind is Killing Me!

Man, the wind the last couple of days has been horrendous, gusting up to 30mph at times! I got in a nice 10 miler yesterday morning before it hit, thank goodness! I felt really good afterwards and was happy to be able to get back into some longer runs. I did strength training in the afternoon, including 90 body weight squats which kind of made my legs a little jello-like today. I love that feeling though, that you've done something! I had planned on putting in a shorter run this afternoon but with the wind blowing the way it is and no shelter of trees or anything, chances are I would end up in Oz! So I talked to Aubrey and we'll probably hit the road in the morning around 8:30 or so. If you wait too long then you'll get blown cross country! Stupid plains of Texas! ha

I know what you mean about that wind. We've had some really bad days as well. Nice work on the 10 miler.

Yeah Anthony...but the only windbreak in Lubbock Texas is a barbwire fence somewhere near Amarillo. It sucks, trust me...plus you get the added benefit of being sandblasted with all the dirt in the air. I've been in sandstorms so bad that I saw a ground hog 10 feet in the air trying to dig himself to the top! no lie! ;-)
