Welcome to my 3-Day for the Cure blog where I discuss my experience training, fundraising and walking in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. I'll be walking in my third 3-Day, this year in San Diego with my teammate Julie, who I met back in 2009 on the walk. I love sharing stories, challenges, frustrations and successes here and really enjoy hearing back from all of you.

Training Tuesday - Wussy and Whiney and Weather challenges

There are now 46 days until the San Diego 3-Day for the Cure. Time to really get my butt in gear so that I am fully prepared to walk the full 60 miles.

This past week has had some crazy weather. We've had highs in the 100s in San Diego, with heavy humidity (remember that us Souther Californians are big wusses when it comes to weather). Then we had thunder storms, which turned back into sticky, icky heat. Now we are back to rain. So, needless to say, training outside has been a challenge. I know, I know, most of you deal with this all the time, but again, Southern California = wussy and whiney about weather.

On Saturday afternoon, my boyfriend and I decided to do a walk in our neighborhood. Despite the heat and humidity we were feeling adventurous and took this trail that we had never been on. Feeling more adventurous, when the trail ended we decided to climb our way out of the canyon rather than back track. Enter the phase of Lyndsey being a whiney walker, complaining about my legs getting scratched and itchy. Sigh...at least we did make it though.

I'm excited because we also scheduled a trip to Zion National Park roughly one month before the 3-Day. I think it will be the perfect opportunity to get a 15 mile hike in as part of my training.
