let the rain begin....... again!

Its really hard to wake up early and bike 10km when its raining little animals outside. I had the pleasure :( of experiencing just that for the past 2 days already. I would still wake up at 3:45am only to wait and wait.... and wait... until its already almost 5am just for the rain to slightly lighten up a bit.

Yesterday's session was ok since it was a my 40 minute long run day. :) geez.... 40 minute long run.... tsk tsk tsk..... Now I sound really lame. But this morning I was really getting worried on running on the track, specially when I got a glimpse of the amount of water on it. :(

and then there was this.........

I can't show the entire photo for fear that KC might get mad at me. Sorry Miss KC, I couldn't wait for the Mizuno. :(

"Running at 70mph, the cheetah is the fastest mammal on the planet..." Well wearing this thing felt like I was doing 20kph like the other elite runners. Let me reiterate..... it FELT like.... But I don't think I was even close to that speed. Well at least not yet....

I had the whole track for myself today. Not even the Muay Thai Team nor the Soccer Team was there. Even if it rained some more, I wouldn't have any excuse to slack off my speed.

I just wish it would rain on my daily commute to and from the track. I can deal with the cold when I run but when I bike....... grrrrrrrrrrrr..... the chill is a real killer. Oh! and the slippery road too! :)
