Tri Training Week 2 is done

I skipped 3 workouts...2 swims and 1 bike ride.

So Wednesday, I rode the bike for 60 minutes. This was the first ride after my fitting. I can ride the bike without my left hand (so I can now scratch my face and ride at the same time). Right hand is less death grippy. I got 7.39 miles, so obviously I have to work on speed. It'll come. I got up to Webb Bridge and back. No biggie. I quit at 58 minutes, because it started to rain, and I was at my car.

Thursday, it took 2 hours to get home. For some reason, I didn't take my clothes with me to work, so I had to go home to get them (therefore hitting traffic). Ugh. D was waiting for me, so I knew I couldn't back out. At 7 I pulled in, got dressed and off for 4 miles. It was hot. But I got through it. Then we went and had Mexican food for dinner.

Friday, my friend was in town. I drove him to work, and co-worker took him to Taco Mac after work. I went to ride my bike. It was thundering so I used my smarts and rode my bike in a whole bunch of trees. Anyway, for some reason I decided that I would have to ride fast to get in my 30 minutes. Yes, I realize this makes no sense. Anyway because I was "hurrying" I had a death grip. I got in 4.5 miles in 28 minutes. Then went to Taco Mac and had Boulder Mojo and Bell's Amber. 77 beers on my passport list so far...

Saturday will be another post, because I had a 5K. But I did get my bike rack. Talked to the bike guy about my palms (one is now bruised). I ended up getting gloves with pads for the palm and something for my nerve in my hand. Bike store cost: $250. We'll see how much I spend next weekend. :)

Sunday I was too hungover to ride 90 minutes.

Tuesday: Swim, no. Run-3 miles
Wednesday: Bike- 60 minutes
Thursday: Swim, no. Run-4 miles
Friday: Bike-30 minutes
Saturday: Run 2.4 miles (supposed to be a 5K).
Sunday: Bike- 90 minutes , no

Nice job getting that riding in! The speed will come, comfort and skills are FIRST.

I'm glad the fitting made it easier to ride your bike. Keep up the awesome work!

Yeah...this biking thing is getting costly...but fun.

LOL about the "death grip." I get like that. The gloves hurt

I meant the gloves "help" but I got distracted by DramaGirl who can't find her cell phone...

Just get comfortable on the bike. The rest will come. Think back to learning to drive. Now you can eat, text and talk all why driving. ---Not saying it is safe, but it can be done.
