So I guess my first official bike workout will be a spin class..Anticlimactic if you ask me.
Hartley and I went to ride outside with some other tri folks in the 25 degree weather on Sat. AM. It was rather humbling as we road to the East mountain area and I think my average up the hills was about 5 MPH. Oh and that is with my HR at around 150. So my new coach, Luis and I will have to discuss the HR thing soon..Either that or I will be walking myself up the hills with my bike which may be quite embarrassing in a race.. Needless to say, most of the rest of the group stood waiting for us at times and that kind of sucked to be holding people back..
I am really excited about the training-that is subject to change over the next 20 weeks. After spin I have swimming today, which is usually relaxing for me. I am thinking about hiring a coach for a few sessions to help me tune up some swim techniques..
Becca, Dan, Heidi, Heather and Jack are stilll here . We watched the Super Bowl yesterday. In case you heard a giant roar from the Northeast Heights, it was the many people in our house screaming simultaneously in the fourth quarter. We are Giants fans, ify ou couldn't tell and man you could hear it with that last touchdown. The dog even got scared and the baby had to be taken from the room it was so loud.! We had a blast though and afterward folks played bowling, tennis and boxing with Heidi's Wii game. What an amazing " toy" that thing is!
More later about training adventures..
