As Sam always reminds me, a sprint triathlon is a bike race with a warm up in the water and a little run on the end, so riding my bike as much as possible is my best bet at having a good showing. I am also told that biking is the best cross training for running, so it's a win-win all around. I will also be using my Jillian Michaels' DVDs (much to Reed's delight), sit ups and push ups, and the weights at the gym for strength training.
It felt so good to ride my bike this morning on the most beautiful day that Maine can muster. It was a little chilly and a little windy and blue skies in all directions.
Susan and I rode 15.5 miles for our innaugural bike and felt fantasitc.
But I guess I need to work on my skills a bit, because everytime I ride my bike I get bike grease on my right leg.
