It's co-ld here. And way windy. And tomorrow morning is supposed to be in the 20's. Brrr...This totally puts me into hibernation mode. All I want to do is curl up with my heating blanket by the fire, sip something nice and warm (hot apple cider, coffee or hot chocolate) and eat. Yikes.
Good thing I have some races on my schedule, otherwise I would be doing just that.
And that's not good for anyone!
So now is a great time to break out my new baby. Add something new to the mix. So Doug set up our bikes on the trainers this weekend-thanks Babe. I have some awesome new cycling shoes and I'm ready to go. As a matter of fact, we have a lunch date today. I'm going to ride her for 10 minutes to try and get my butt used to the seat. A little at a time. It's been a long time since my butt has been on a bike. Honestly, I think I've been on a bike once since August of 2006 when I finished my Half Ironman. Scare me! And with a race this weekend, I'm not going balls to the wall cuz I know how sore cycling can make me when I haven't done it in a while.
With that said, someone in the household purchased some new goggles this weekend also. What does this mean?
Looks like some good cross training this winter.
Whew...that was a ride. 10 minutes about killed me. I traveled 1.82 miles and went...nowhere (I was on the trainer-Ha!). I averaged an 11.2 pace. Honestly, I'm not sure what my resistance was set to, but it wasn't that hard I don't think. It was a workout for sure! Butt feels fine. Legs were a little shaky after I finished but they are good now. Not a bad start for not being on a bike for 2 years. It'll just take some hard work and dedication to get where I want to be.
I'm after YOU!
