Who knew?



So I went in this evening for my first ever bike fit. I really should have done this long ago. He made some pretty dramatic changes to my position and gave me a lot of advice. I have to say that I've had nothing but really good luck at Bicycle Village Westminster. Every time I've gone in they seem to go out of their way to make me feel comfortable. They never make you feel like your questions are dumb or that they don't have time for you. He encouraged me to join in on the Saturday rides, and was just a nice guy. Not only that but he didn't even make me pay for the fitting because you get one free when you purchase your bike and since I've never had one even though I bought the bike almost a year ago he gave it to me free. Can't beat that! I can't wait to try it out.

I actually made it to the pool this morning! Yea me! Now it was only a 30 minute swim, that's all I can get in before work but 30 minutes is better then nothing!

Had what I felt was a great run on the treadmill last night. The plan called for 3 x 1600 at 10:27 with 800 jogs for a total of 7 miles. Cut it a little short and only did 5.75 but I managed to hit the miles at 10:28 10:33 and 10:29 which for me is fast! So I was really happy with it. I'm starting to feel much stronger with my running.



So with that said I'm thinking of signing up for the Snowman Stampede on the 19th. Probably the 10 miles. If the weather forecast is to be believed it is suppose to be a nice week and the weekend should be good....not that I expect them to be right 10 days out but you can hope. Any one want to join me?

I would love to join you, but it is a little far. I'm trying to find a 10K that day, near me to combat the beer festival I'm going to later in the day.

A bike fit makes all the difference - so great you have a LBS you like, that makes a big difference as well!

Congratulations on a great run! You did an excellent job of hitting your splits!

The bike fitting will make a huge difference. I remember the first one I had and I was floored by how much better I felt riding. Now let the weather cooperate so you can ride outside!

Have a great weekend!

Yay for getting a bike fit! It makes such a huge difference!

Have fun at the Snowman Stampede if you end up doing it! I'd run it, but I'm still giving my ITB some rest.

I so need to get a bike fit! I am already signed up for the Stampede 10-miler. Was pondering switching to the 5 due to illness, but could be talked into toughing it out! :)

Hi, great job on doing all 3 sports last week. I am just a runner so don't need to mess with that other stuff. Looks like you are on your way and have a great attitude to achieve your goals. Then achieve the next goal :-)

Thanks for stopping by my Blog last week and offering your contratulations.

Thanks for checking out my blog! I enjoyed reading yours as well. It looks like we both completed our first half marathons around the same time. The bike fit will make a big difference. Good luck with your training!
