I skipped the most important stuff...

I really thought I had posted this stuff last night but looking at my blog it seems that I didn't.

Yesterday morning I went out for my bike ride. About 10 miles into it the front derailleur (sp?) started rubbing against the chain. I don't know what happened but I couldn't make it stop. So I turned around and went home. My intended 30 miles ended up being 12, but it was good. I then did a 1.5 mile run off the bike. I have not done that in probably 8 months. It was hard but not undoable. The weight training I've been doing has really increased the strength of my legs. So even though they were a little shaky, they recovered pretty rapidly. I was pleased with how I felt when done.

Then it was off to work. I had to run by the lab for a little bit and do some mystery shopping. Then I dropped my bike at the shop and went to have lunch. Oh no, I forgot. Between mystery shopping and dropping the bike off I signed up for the Na Wahine Triathlon. I'm very excited about this. It's a super sprint, so it's really short. That's good since I haven't been swimming much. But it should be fun.

After lunch we went back to the tri shop and picked up my bike. He had adjusted all the cables and figured that they had just stretched some as cables are wont to do. I also had them adjust the seat. I found that I was pushing myself to the back of the seat every 15 or 20 minutes. It was almost like I was sliding forward on the seat even though the seat was perfectly level. So he adjusted it up a touch to see if that's better. I was going to go out and test ride it this morning but I ended up sleeping in.

So there you have it. I'm doing a tri next Sunday. How exciting is that??

A tri sounds fun....I was wishing I did the short sprint one yesterday when my hubby did the longer olympic distance one. But, someone had to watch the kid. Oh well, some other time.

Faced my fears

 So I mentioned that I had gotten some of the cups I ordered. They are Stanley dupes and have gold plating under the powder coating, so when...
