We're having a very strange winter here in Texas. I guess it's happening everywhere but this is really odd for us. We don't normally get this many wintery days, to this extreme, for this long. It's been cold, icy, windy and rainy. Hasn't been very conducive to Ironman training and getting my long rides in.
Today I was determined. I needed to get in a 3 hour ride and haven't been able to get many outdoor rides in lately. I figured I could keep myself somewhat warm by keeping moving and just power through it. My ride lasted all of 15 minutes. That's how long it took for my fingers to lose feeling and my toes to feel painfully numb. Just more interesting adversity to deal with I guess.
