'TIS THE SEASON!
Not! No, it is NOT winter yet. You wouldn't know that looking out the window this morning, but today we had our annual early snowfall day--just a lot earlier than usual. And this is after a 70s+ weekend!
The "S" word was in the forecast, but I'm sure no one really believed it until they saw it.
Here's what I saw heading to work this morning. Note, it is 8:15 am and see how dark it is! See what I mean about the "dark and cold" season??
While we really had quite a bit of snow for this early in the season, it is not predicted to last--fortunately!
Which reminds me that by the time I am able to run again, it will be November, which is always a hard time to want to get started at anything. So I am going to have to use those first couple of months to just rebuild a base, small that it might be. (But who knows??)
I am considering the book Training Plan for Multisport Athletes and wonder if anyone has read this or would recommend it. It has chapters covering any triathlon distance as well as nutrition plans, periodization, and heart rate training (or the Borg method for perceived exertion). Any good?
