Hehe. Gotta love the midwest.When I lived in OK, I used those southerly winds as a training tool. Push for an hour or two into the headwind, turn around and enjoy the ride back. But after a few weeks, even that got old, so I'd convince the wife to drive me a hundred miles south and drop me off. The good thing was that there was an outlet mall in that area, so she rarely complained. So I'd get a century in, with howling tailwind, and a hell of a workout, sometimes covering the distance in 4 hours by myself.Good fun!So get off that trainer and get into the wind.It'll likely be windy on race day anyway. ;)
We've got those winds today too. I thought about that -- having someone drop me off 20 mi from home for a good ride in. But now I've got a sick kid home from school, so I too am trainer bound!
