We had a presentation on getting fitted properly for a bicycle. I use to just hop on and go — but now I know the importance of making sure everything is fitting properly.
It was a very interesting presentation. We also learned the proper names for each part of the bike. I am glad that I purchased a new bike but disappointed that the weather is not cooperating for me to do outside riding.
I did drive the course in my car for the triathlon. I wanted to see what the road looked like. The 15 miles in the car seemed far so I can only imagine what I will think when I get a chance to do it on my bike.
This past week I have been running 4 miles before our triathlon class, which is up from my usual 3 miles. I no longer am concerned about my ability to run the 3.1 miles for the triathlon but need to do some biking. Next week I will be attending some spin classes. Hopefully my bike trainer that I ordered will arrive so I can get more time in on my bike. Time is starting to get short.
Last week, we also had a workout that was different than normal. We only had a half hour to do strength training on Thursday. Craig and Junius had set us up with a great workout that was fun. Each segment was fast with only little down time in between each exercise. The old heart was really pumping!
