Can somebody please just shoot me and put me out of my misery please??  *groan* 

I will admit that it is beautiful. I took some amazing photos.
As I previously mentioned, we had a flippin' snow storm last week.  Oh... Do I seem upset?  Does it seem like I dislike the snow?  What gives you that idea??  I love the snow!  Snow is FAB for us road cyclists...what are you talking about??  Oh and people who drive Chevy Aveos...yeah, they are great little snow cars, especially on the icy Seattle hills!  You know what else is great about the snow?...burning up your vacation days because your bus keeps getting re-routed away from your house!  Yeah, snow is flippin' awesome.

Maybe I should get to my point.  Due to the lovely "weather phenomenon" we had, I couldn't get in a lot of my usual training, and I missed my Thursday swim, so I ended up doing it last Sunday.  The next day I rock climbed, and then the next day (Tuesday), I had another pool workout.  Basically I did 3 days in a row of arms, back, and shoulders, and now I am paying a big price for it.  I was sore yesterday, but today I am miserable, and today guessed it...a pool workout day.  I guess you could say my problem "SNOWBALLED." (Hey!  I thought that was pretty clever!)  I do not think it wise to go to the pool today and not give those muscles the recovery and rest they need.  Perhaps I should swap Thursday and Friday's workouts, and run for an hour today, and swim/bike 45 tomorrow.  Yes.  I think that's a solid idea! :)

Last night's workout was a bike 45min /run 15 min quick change.  It went great.  I noticed that my heart rate seems to be down a little even, which makes me feel good. :)  I must be really getting over this cold.  Yay!

(By the way, I am not really that much of a snow hater.  I'm just a big complainer when it comes to not being able to train.)  :)
