Tough morning for me: When I headed out it was raining only ever so slightly, so I figured I could at least get in an easy 3 since the weather was only going to get worse during the day. The rain picked up and about halfway through, I noticed the road was starting to become coated with black ice. I struggled up a steep grade. However, I still had a large down hill ahead of me. As expected, I started to lose my footing and took a little spill, landing on my hand and buttocks. Fortunately, I ended up with only a few minor bruises. I hit the gym after work since I felt that my morning workout was rather meager.
