Rainy Cold Single Speed Commute to Pool

Posted by Brad Hefta-Gaub under: Cycle.

Man, it was ugly out there today. I am working on a new routine of getting up earlier to take care of my swim training. The pool has lap swim from 5:30 till 7:55am. I got up at 5am, had breakfast, and had planned to get out on the road by 6am. But it was so rainy and cold out there I dragged my feet till 6:30… I got completely soaked…

After my swim, I also sat around the YMCA for awhile trying to brace myself to go out in the rain again. When I finally got home I was so cold and wet I felt nauseous.

Me in 2002 - 200lbsThis is my fitness blog. Some people who knew me a long time ago may wonder, what the heck I'm doing writing a blog about fitness. Many of them wouldn't imagine that I'd have anything to do with fitness. You see, up until age 34, I treated my body very poorly. I sat around at home, at work, at play. I ate junk food and lots of it. And the result was what you'd expect 5'4" and 200 lbs with 36% body fat. (more...)
