Thursday Three- Holla!

1. I have now had more flats in the last month then I have in my entire cycling experience! Saturday morning while trying to complete my 8 x (4:00 run 10:00 bike 4:00 run) I finished my 4th bike and noticed as I finished that my tire was low, I pumped it up before heading out on my run, I could hear a leak, by the time I got back my son who was getting ready to mow the lawn asked me if I had run over a knife as he heard the leak while he was standing next to it putting gas in the mower! Needless to say this time around the tire changing, rear tire, did not go as smoothly, got the tire off and changed easy but had a hard time getting it back on, and by the time I did I didn't feel like I had enough time to finish up the workout before getting ready for our raft trip. The gods must be after me these days! Also very strange, twice in the last month I have ridden off on my bike and gotten around the corner before noticing that I did not put helmet on!?! What is up with that I've never forgotten to put it on before.

2. I will be heading to Boulder to ride the 70.3 course with Tea from Swimming, Cycling & Running...with A(L)titude on Saturday morning, followed by a little bit of running. I've not yet met Tea and I'm looking forward to it. Any one else who would care to join us let me know the more the merrier!

3. Have I said recently how completely unprepared I feel for this little tri that will soon be here? I still wonder just what I was thinking!

17 DAYS!!!!

Have a great ride on Saturday!

You are prepared for your "little" race. You are putting in the workouts and I know you will do it!

Sorry for all the tire "bad" luck. Better now than during the 70.3 though!
Good luck on the "trial" ride of the route-you're gonna do great.

I have yet to have a flat tire....I'm sure it will happen on our adventure across Rhode Island. Bleh.

You are going to do great on your little race in 17 days. It's all about the adventure and you are having the time of your life right now. Have fun this weekend ... celebrate with a litte frozen yogurt after :) and when you are done, we will celebrate even bigger with our M&Ms....that'll get your through this little race that much faster! Ha!

That's a sure sign your getting more comfortable and confident on your bike--you're so used to wearing it that you can't even tell when you don't have it on! :)

Tea said...

Underprepared? NO WAY! I've followed your training the whole way, and you are way beyond prepared. Now, it's time to have fun.

That is crazy about all of the flats! Have you had someone check out your rim??

You are going to do awesome in the 70.3...just awesome!!
