Windy Tempo

Who's tired of hearing Jason and Leah bitch about the wind? No one? That's what I thought.

This morning we went for a 40 minute tempo run following the same style that we have the last couple of times with 15 minute warmup, then speeding up every 4 minutes for 3 times, speeding up to be the fastest we will be for 2 minutes, then 2 minutes a bit slower, 4 more minutes a bit slower (so that's 4x5 = 20 mintues of tempo running) and then a 5 minute cool down. Get all that? Anyways, there is a screaming wind out of the west and so it was a little difficult at times. But as usual we got through it!

We are getting ready to head out to watch the Cubbies take on the Reds. Go Cubs!!!! (Did you see me mention the wind is screaming out of the west? I wonder how many balls will touch Sheffield?!?!)

You're from Chicago and you're complaining about the wind? I thought you'd be used to it be now! Well, fair enough, I guess. I'm from Vancouver and I still complain about the rain.

BTW, what happened to the Cubbies last night? That Arroyo guy is on fire!

Have fun at the game!

No I am not sick of your bitching about the wind. But going on and on about the cubbies, I mean come on already, get a real team! Go Brewers!!

You should have heard me cursing the lakefront on sunday because of the wind. This afternoon though not so bad.
Yeah for the Cubs - how is that for a cards fan.

I know what you mean about wind.  I ran in Washington Park and got hit by blowing dust coming at me from three directions.

I'm sure plenty of balls will touch Sheffield.
