Train in the Conditions You May Experience
Right now there are massive wild fires burning in South Georgia, and smoke has blown all the way up to metro Atlanta. 11 days away from the half ironman in Macon and I realize that there is some likelihood that this condition will arise during the event (especially on a one loop, 56 mile bike course).
The National Weather Service issued this statement:
THE SMOKE WILL ENHANCE THE AIR QUALITY PROBLEMS TODAY…ESPECIALLY IN THE METRO AREAS OF ATLANTA…ATHENS… COLUMBUS…AND MACON. PEOPLE WITH RESPIRATORY PROBLEMS AND THE ELDERLY SHOULD REMAIN INDOORS IN THOSE AREAS WITH THICK SMOKE.
I’m about to go for my lunch time run. Sounds crazy, but I’m almost as healthy as they come. Don’t worry, I’ll take it easy out there.
