My ability to bound out of bed without an alarm clock at whatever ungodly hour is legendary. Today, the machinery did not fail me. At 0400 my eyes were open and at 0415 I was up and putting on the Speedo. By 0417 I had a cup of tea steeping.

But at 0418 there was a flash of far off thunder and at 0425 there was thunder, lightening and a light rain. By 0426 I had recalculated where I would fit this swim workout and the brick that was supposed to occur this afternoon.

And by 0430 I had turned in for 2.4 more hours of the best sleep ever to the sounds of a gentle rain.

I could pretend I was disappointed, but you know me too well for that.

WHEN you put on your speedo is information I never want to read about again.
