Today it rained. All day. I don't really enjoy running in the rain. So I opted to move my 11-mile run to Sunday, when the weatherman says it's only supposed to rain in the morning. He also said it would be a bit windy. Which made me cringe.
I didn't realize how windy he was talking about though.
Then I read this bulletin from my friends at the National Weather Service:
Great. So unless I figure out a way to run only with the wind at my back (would that be in a southwesterly direction?) I might be blown to Oz. Or hit by falling tree branches or power lines. At this point, I'm thinking Mom and Dad's treadmill is looking a bit more safe. Of course there's always the hope that the weatherman is wrong, which has been known to happen."...A wind advisory is in effect from 1 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday. The National Weather Service in Green Bay has issued a wind advisory. Northeast winds of 25 to 35 mph with gusts to 45 to 50 mph are likely ... The wind could cause some tree branches and wires to fall and cause local power outages."
But 11 miles on the treadmill? Ugh. Maybe I'll settle for another combination struggle against the wind and treadmill. I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow. That is assuming I haven't been blown off to the Land of Oz.
And on a non-running related note, I spent some time Saturday night playing around with my blog layout. How did it take me so long to discover Blogger in Draft? Seriously. Do you like the revamped Adventures of Badgergirl? Or should I keep tweaking it?
