Ok perhaps I am wimping out, but I have no desire to ride today due to the unexpected cold and windy day outside. Yes I have cold weather cycling gear. Yes I know Cheeseheads who ride in significantly negative temperatures (don't ask me how I know what went on at Trek years ago, and probably still goes on today!) But at 34*F with steady 24mph winds, I just don't want to go out in it, no matter if it is a sunny day.
So what to do? I've got some elbow inflammation acting up, so that sort of limits my weight lifting as I don't want to make it a chronic issue. I don't want to ride rollers indoors--I'd likely crash and break something (bike, furniture, bones...). Walk the dogs? Too cold and windy. I don't run unless it's an emergency (see also, Too cold).
Wait a minute...it is Thursday, right? (Yeah I know, I wrote this piece on Wednesday, thinking it was only Tuesday...oops!) But Tuesday and Thursday is free swim time at the local senior center. And I have a senior center membership! A perk(?) of being in my second half century I guess.
So, instead of freezing my fanny off tomorrow in this frigid spell, I intend to bask in the indoor heated warmth of the pool, attempting to remember how to swim laps! I found my suit, and my bug-eyed goggles, so I should be set. I wonder if they'd let me use my snorkel for lap swimming? Hmmm, I will have to ask!
