Mother Nature has been having her fun in the upper Midwest the last few weeks. Like any spring in MN we’ve had our hot, dry, cold, wet spells which vary day to day. The problem has been that the cold and wet has always come when we’ve tried to get our team in the open water. The latest chance on Tuesday was met with a rain storm that varied from very light to downpours. We had the team in the water during a light spell but had to pull them out when lightning was spotted. We were hoping the storm was moving on so we tried to wait 20 minutes to give the all clear. Just about as the 20 minutes period was about to be up there was another spotting and we had to cancel the swim.
The complete opposite could be said for yesterday. The weather was great with the sun out and shining. Ms. R wanted to go get a swim in, but I couldn’t pass up the nice weather to just go out and run. My running had been somewhat limited as of late so it was nice to go out and get a medium distance run in.
The weekend of course is suppose to be a mix of sun and rain which always has a chance to disrupt the load of training I’d like to get in as well as the team brick scheduled for Saturday morning. As usual we’ll have to wait and see what the weather has in store for us.
Have a great weekend!
