Kirk and I are on our 12th week of training this week (scary how fast 3 months goes by!) and the bike riding has begun. Kirk has been filling my ears with talk about duathalons and triathlons. Of course said activities involve even more training (and I am shocked?)
I realized I hadn’t been on a bike for extended periods since early 2002 and owww…..the muscles we have been training are not the same ones used while riding a bike. Still though, I could feel the difference that a shy 3 months of training makes! It was a great feeling to be riding on the trail, sunny and warm (nearly 70* today!) with a gentle wind coming off the Cedar River below us.
We have added two Yakima King Cobra bike holders to our rack system. And yes, I have a girlie bike. You can all give me grief over my cruising special. It is super comfy though 😛 It works well for packed dirt and paved trails. Once we get closer to doing our first Tri though I will have to get a road bike though. Oh well!
The river (which Kirk would call a skinny creek) was running nicely today.
Nothing too special, just a nice day out in the sun. And that I love!
