Sideways Rain? Seriously?!

Doesn’t Mother Nature know it’s Bike To Work Week? What a cruel joke to play. Shame on you Mother Nature!

My ride to work wasn’t too bad – it was cool and cloudy, but there was no precipitation coming from the sky. My knees were a little unimpressed with all the riding, but they can suck it up 😉 But coming home – holy wind & rain Batman! Not cool. But I survived!

I did pack my lunch today though, seeing as I have some groceries in the house again. It started with a sandwichhoney ham, cheddar cheese, mustard on a whole wheat kaiser.

There were veggies – good ol’ carrot & cucumber.

And some rice cracker & nut mix. I always forget I have this in the back of my cupboard. And actually, that’s probably a good thing, because it’s easy to plow through that stuff!

And that bowl of pink stuff in the corner is the yogurt/raspberries/hemp seeds I didn’t eat yesterday. It just didn’t want to photograph well all mixed up like that.

Work is a little chaotic right now – not because of the work we have to do, but because we have renovations going on, there is stuff everywhere, and things aren’t in their usual places, so you spend alot of time hunting down what you are looking for. Plus we had the water shut off for awhile this afternoon – talk about mad rush to use the bathroom 15 min before it was being turned off! HA!

And now, I’m just finishing shoving a snack in my face, because tonight we start our Skating Bootcamp! I think it’s actually called something like Summer Shape Up, but I’ve decided that’s lame, so I’m calling it bootcamp. On the schedule tonight – running intervals. That’s right, you heard me. Running. As in the thing that I don’t do. And what’s even better? It’s outdoors, in the wind & sideways rain. As you can tell, I’m really looking forward to it. I think my knees are even more excited. You’ll get another post tonight with dinner if I survive. Here’s hoping!

    I walked to school yesterday in sideways rain. Me and my mom have this deal that if it’s pouring out she drives me to school. Well, it wasn’t pouring but the wind was unbelieveable. This makes the rain go sideways and the use of an unbrella is futile. =( I was not a happy camper.

    Ugh! I agree!!! What’s with the sucky weather!?!?!

    I went for a run wearing my top, a warm-up jacket and another fleece lined jacket on top of that. It was bitterly cold – gale force winds that would howl like a mad person. I cut it short and came home.

    It’s been cold and SUPER windy here!!!!!!!!
