|I wish this damn thing came with training wheels.|
On thing I noticed on my ride today was that I sweat my ass off. It was hot outside, sure, but this was EFFORT SWEAT. I was barely going 7 miles an hour and at the gym, I go about 14.5 mph. I don't get it.
|This is what I look like on my tri bike.|
I am starting to have some serious doubts about this olympic triathlon in 5 weeks. Is that enough time to get use to the bike and learn proper swimming? My logical inner voice says HELL NO. But some stupid part of me says I just need to try harder and things will fall into place. Who do I listen to?
There is a sprint tri about 1.5 hours away 2 weeks before my oly and I was thinking of doing that for practice. I need to find $65 not being used to feed my children to register, so it's a little iffy. I have really blown the budget this month on the bike - plus all the things I needed to ride it! Helmet, lady saddle, maintenance kit, new pedals, etc, etc, etc. Triathlons are not the cheapest hobby.
Ok - just wanted to update the blog since the last entry was sad and measly. I rode the bike and didn't fall. Yay for forward progress!
