I have few commitments, and I often have the time to put forth the effort.
Today my training partner and I biked from Fort Hood to BLORA. We did about 35 miles round trip before we hit the pool. I know that we could have gone further, but it started to get hot. Texas hot. So we opted to end at 35. Next weekend though, I think we will go at least 56 or just under.
I just discovered that mapmyrun allows me to customize bike routes too. This could be dangerous. Very dangerous.
Things that I thought about on our ride:
1. I need to work on nutrition. What do I need to do during the race in order to be successful?
2. Training does work, and I am so much stronger than I was when I did my last tri at the end of June. So much stronger. It's amazing!
3. Maybe I don't suck at the bike as much as I thought!
I still have a long way to go, but at least I am making progress, and that makes my time on the trainer worth it. Gunner mentioned getting a hard tire to put on my bike for the trainer, so we don't have to keep switching out the tire that I use on the trainer, to one appropriate for the road. I guess it's one more thing that I need to do in all my
Gunner took the Jr and Em fishing tonight. Maybe they will be able to satisfy my craving for fish tonight. If not, I have salmon as a backup. Tomorrow I hit the paleo program hard, and I am determined to get in fighting form. My roomie from Baylor is going to be competing in the same triathlon, and she is a dorce to be reckoned with, so I have to be on my game!
Tomorrow I just have to run.....early or late.....that's the question right now.
