It's summer!

Suddenly the temperatures shot up to 82*F today!

Spring cleaning, such as it is here, is almost done. Last weekend we shampooed the carpets.

Today I sorted out and folded all the long-sleeved cotton race t-shirts (about 20 of them) and put them away on the top shelf in the closet, to wait for autumn to return.

I still have to sort out the running tights from the shorts and put them away.

Now I'm down to one stack of short-sleeved cotton race t-shirts and another stock of technical t-shirts and tank tops and I'll wear those for the next six months.

But no workouts yet. Still sick. Seven or more complete days off may make me insane.

I was really sick with bronchitis this winter and had a whole seven days totally off from exercise. It was awful! And there was at least another week or ten days after that where it was still very difficult, lung problems... Rationally, though, one must take the time off in order to recover, real days off do more good than half-assed workouts attempted too early! Good luck getting through it.

jealous, jealous, jealous that you are experiencing temperatures above 80.... above 70.... heck, above 60!!!!

We have yet to really have spring spring and it is getting to me big time.

At least the ice is starting to melt off the lakes. Good thing, since my first tri is 7 seeks away.

I'm not sure I want to swim in slush!

so glad I'm not the only one that lives in race shirts -- "dressing up" for me during the summer means a shirt without sponsor logos on the back!!
