Off to the bar we go. I know what you're thinking - the bar? They sponsor the running club and provide us with a nice and welcoming place to meet (not to mention sweet potato fries). It was raining earlier in the day. It slowed down. In all my experience with Colorado Springs, I made the decision to dress as if the rain would not return. My mistake. It rained like crazy on the most absorbent hoodie I owned. I couldn't zone out with all the rain and soaking wet hoodiedom. Luckily, I had more fun running and working out in the rain than I've had in a long time. First, the temperature was actually warm despite the rain. I got to roll around in grass, which I never get to do at work. THEN I got to thrusters with a rock. It reminded me of those falling rock signs. Now all I needed was a cliff to throw the rocks from so they landed right in front one of those signs. When I was done, I got to eat some tasty food. That's a pretty good deal.
Crossfit is about the unknown right? Well, if there is anything impossible to predict, Colorado weather would be one of them. You might as well be prepared to workout in a range of conditions on any given day. Perhaps it would have been nicer with the other jacket I own - the waterproof one? Meh. It was a good mental exercise in general preparedness to just go out and do stuff without complaining about my lot in life. How lame would it be to only be able to do things when they've met the stringent conditions you've set for it? That's a reason why some workout routines are never established. Life is rarely like that, so why should your workouts be any different? Embrace the total cluster that a wrench in the plan brings. It might actually turn out to be a better time than you gave it credit for.
