I had my bike fit today. I will be borrowing a friends road bike for the race. I was really happy to find someone to borrow a bike from that was my height and just an adjustment to the handle bars was needed. I will be looking to buy some gel bike gloves to reduce the force on my hands and some bike shorts.
Since it was my first time ever being on a road bike, I was taught how to use the gears and how to pump up the tires. I can’t say the seat was very comfortable, but that can be changed too.
The triathlon classes are going very well. I’m enjoying the time with my fellow 6-Pack and others that have joined the class. I’m learning a lot about swimming. I understand the concept but when I get in the water, it just seems like a lot to remember at that time. It will all come with practice and patience. The trainers are doing a fantastic job!
