Please! When I bought my bike, I thought it was pricey - well, for me it was. I didn't plan on riding it that much, so the cheap route I went. However, I didn't think it was cheap. It still costs way more than I wanted to spend. But, I still got a good bike, a felt, and a red one at that. I like it, and have made some minor changes to it, thanks to my hubby. He put a different crank set on it, (I think that's what it's called). So, I have 2 rings instead of 3. Whateva, still don't know what this means. At least, now I know what I'm doing when I switch gears. He changed the pedals to clipless which meant I had to buy shoes, and cleats. Blah! I (well, David) also spiced it up by replacing the black bar tape with some sweet purty red tape! It's smoking!
Not really. But, I now want to upgrade the thing. So, he's telling me my tires are heavy which makes me slower on the bike. That's what my excuse is as to why I'm soooo slow. ;-) Also, BTW my body is heavy which makes me slower (Which I am working on, folks). So, it's time for upgrades!!! woo hoo. Who knew this freakin' sport could be so expensive. I just bought tri bars. I need new goggles, new cleats, cleat covers, and now a wetsuit for Clemson tri. Man.... There goes my money for clothes for work. Who needs to look good at work anyhow?
Today at lunch, I did my 2nd of 3rd swim workout this week. I finished it. I had a rough time breathing during this session. I just couldn't get it together. From this week on, it's 3 swim workouts of at least 1000yds each visit. Next week, I will start doing drills. I know that there is something within my form that is keeping me from speeding up, so I gotta work on it.
1000 yds - 25:33
Time to turn in for the night, after I read a few more blogs. Have a g'night!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LISA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
