Im a native Floridian...so Im use to the idea of Hurricanes and Tropical Storm. Ill take either one of those over an earthquake any day of the week but I gotta tell ya...THIS Tropical Storm is the worst I have ever seen. She is like your old Aunt Bessie that is suppose to visit for 3 days and stays 3 weeks. She just WON'T LEAVE and she is making everyone's life here in Central Florida difficult if not miserable.
In Downtown Orlando we have had over 9 inches of rain in 2 days with more still falling. That is light compared to Melbourne Florida with over 25 inches of rain. I run a fitness boot camp that does workouts OUTDOORS. This storm is KILLING my business and I really want her to pack her bags and head on her way to part of the country that NEED the rain.
Meanwhile, I am going insane riding a trainer and running on a treadmill. To those of you in cold climates where training requires hours and hours of indoor work, I tip my hat. I can't stand being indoors for this long let alone being on my trainer for 5 hours. I would rather ride in the rain. I did two workouts today- a 1 hour run and 1.5 hour ride and thought I would go mad. This weekend, I have to do a 85 mile ride. I don't care if its raining buckets...im headed to the trail.
To all those affect by this storm, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. I know many homes are flooded and roads are impassible. Worrying about workouts is a tiny thing compared to losing your roof or wading through your living room.
Come on Fay...isn't it time for you to visit your friends in GEORGIA, ALABAMA OR TEXAS!!???
