Tropical Training

Tropical weather on the Gulf Coast. The humidity is near 100%. Rain daily for over a week. Today wind has stuck. 30+mph gusts on todays' ride. In true tropic form each gust was from a different direction. Swirly. When behind it felt like a push. From the front like someone squeezed my brake in a sprint. From the side... excitment!

I finish the threshold crossover ride deep into the darkness on windswept and rain soaked streets.

Been a tough week working around the wx. Requiring a flexible schedule. But I'm getting most of it in. Tomorrow and Friday are going to be a challange. The planned rides are too long to do on the trainer. Chance of rain =80% both days... looks like I'll be getting wet.
