Today I woke up with the intention of running 4 miles, as dictated by my training routine, but the altitude and weather had different plans. I wimped out after 2.5 miles, which was really frustrating considering I've been running on a treadmill for a month and all I want is to do my long runs outside. Besides the breathing difficulties, the weather wasn't cooperating and I barely made it inside before the downpour started. Dad wasn't so lucky; he was up on Vail Pass on a bike ride being rained, sleeted, and hailed on. On the bright side, there was a beautiful rainbow after the weather passed!
I managed a 2 mile ride on the road bike later in the afternoon but generally felt uncomfortable and wasn't upset when we turned around early because if the wind and looming rain clouds. The weather was pretty limiting for the rest of the evening, so we Hung around the condo and did some shopping before calling it an early night.
