Beware the Ides of February
I have an Ironman World Championship wall calendar. Look at the dates for the last week. I wonder if they make the same mistakes when marking their race courses?
I got a new pair of Flash-Point FP-60 wheels.
I have some bad news.
I went to the bike store to pick up a second water bottle cage, and ran into Species 8274 and "USA Triathlon certified Level 1 Coach and USA Cycling certified Club Coach" Brandon. Both are accomplished triathletes and cyclists, and they invited me join them for a group ride tomorrow. I told them I couldn't make it, because I had a rough workout scheduled with IronmAnnie, doing the 4-hour bike and 2-hour run, and I was worried about it.
This may be my last post ever... Tomorrow I am supposed to do a 4-hour bike followed by a 2-hour run. I do not know if I will survive.
The only bike rides I have been doing have been the long rides on Saturdays. 84 miles, 112 miles, 28 miles after bonking... That really isn't a good way to train. The problem is that it's too dark to ride after work, and there is no way I can get up in morning to go for an early ride. It simply won't happen.
I may have found a new kindred spirit in the Tri Blog world...
Triathletes have a reputation for being Gear Whores. They love getting new wetsuits, and GPS watches, and every possible contraption that will fit on the bike. In all honesty, I think I've refrained from such behavior. I certainly ramped up quickly when I first started doing tris, but since then I really haven't spent a lot on new gear. For me, my obsession is magazines.
