Here in Portland, Oregon we are supposed to have mild weather snow very rarely, our main concern being rain. I am used to the rain and can deal with the rain but over the past month it has been all about the snow and ice which has made it all rather hard. The community center where I swim has been closed numerous days, its been too icy to ride the bike so I have been stuck on the trainer, the only thing I have really been able to do is run outdoors with the Yaktrax!
It has been mentally hard to carryon with the training under these conditions. I hope that we started getting some "normal" weather soon so I am free to swim at the community center and ride my bike outside! At least I got to snowboard down my street today that was different and fun!
