R-E-S-P-E-C-T the chill
Boy o boy, did I pull a dumb one last nite. I went to do my intervals and didn't put on shoe covers or grab my winter grade gloves. Don't know what I was thinking, but it was a big MISTAKE cuz by the time I was heading back towards town it was nearing 30 degrees F. I was switching hands on and off the bars and blowing into them to warm them enough to keep them from going completely numb. My feet were stinging. When I got home and they began to thaw every single nerve ending started pulsating. It was an exquisite level of pain nearly sufficient to have me vomiting. So, let my lesson be sufficient for you. Break out your cold weather gear. The time has come.
