Greetings from rainy, cold (well, it is 53 degrees now) which would be a heatwave if I was in Minnesota . . . overcast, and did I mention pelting rain?
But there is wind!
And you know what I do when there is wind? Go kiteboard, of course!
Now, you may be rightfully thinking that conditions suck large moose balls today, so why go out?
Because I am here to kiteboard!
Plus, I was able to round up a few nuttier than squirrel $hit friends to join in.
We got the launch site, set up in the rain and were off like a frog in a sock.
The wind was gusting from 22 to close to 40 mph, and it was insane!
Was it fun?
Was it my best session?
Nope. Not even close.
Was I glad I went?
Life is short. If you wait for conditions to be “optimal,” you will be waiting a long time.
A saying I stole from @adamtglass_ is:
“Move where you can.”
What can you do now? Start there.
If you can go the gym to train, then go.
I know, I know, You may be tired . . . You may be stuck at PF now for a bit and are afraid to set off their lunk alarm . . . It may be crowded . . .You have to drive, etc, etc.
Or you can do some bodyweight training at home.
But get it done.
You know the drill.
Violent consistency first; then adjust as you go.
Move where you can now.
Don’t wait for optimal conditions.
