Rainy rainy day

I had hoped to go for a long ride this morning, and got up at 5AM, only to look out at torrential rain coming down in the darkness between thunderclaps. I had to email my training buddy David and cancel. Now we've had nearly 5.5 inches of rain for the day with local flooding and I'm sitting inside looking out at it wondering what to do for a workout.

I'm also watching the Ironman Coeur d'Alene race coverage online.

Shelley is having a great race so far!
TOTAL SWIM 2.4 mi. (1:19:16) 2:05/100m 1370
FIRST BIKE SEGMENT 56 mi. (3:14:49) 17.25 mph
Go Shelley go!

Plus Natascha Badmann racked up another huge victory at Ironman 70.3 Buffalo Springs in Lubbock, Texas. Another great race for the Queen of Kona!

Update: Yay Shelley! Here's the data on the rest of her day at Ironman Coeur d'Alene:

FINAL BIKE SEGMENT 56 mi. (3:34:36) 15.66 mph
TOTAL BIKE 112 mi. (6:49:25) 16.41 mph 1347
T2: BIKE-TO-RUN 7:40
TOTAL RUN 26.2 mi. (5:56:58) 13:37/mile 1304
1:19:16 6:49:25 5:56:58 14:21:25 1304

Wow-thanks for the links! I just checked Shelly. Did you see that she put down "pole dance instructor" as her profession? Cracked me up! She is doing really well!

I saw Natasha come in - she was dancing around as she crossed the finish line. It was really cool to watch!
