It took me a couple of kilometres to reacquaint myself with shifting gears, front and back brakes, and riding on the right hand side of the road.
When running you face traffic and on the bike you "go with the flow". Wow, I didn't realise how much I miss not being on the bike, really!!!
So, I "tried" a little practice go for a Triathlon. Went for a little swim, hopped on the bike for tweleve km's and then ran for two. *note to self, you are NOT built to run in a speedo, let alone be seen in public with one on*
What a great feeling, an absolute stress release, I had a blast. Luckily I got back to the house just as the thunderstorm rolled through, so the rest of the day was spent inside, but those few hours were really what I needed. And yes, I wore my helmet when I was biking!
Our 14K run on Sunday was really hot, muggy and we were all having a bit of trouble catching our breath, so we slowed the pace down from 7:30 to almost an 8 minute km, so no one was having to struggle, it averaged out to our LSD pace in the end, so at least everyone was comfortable.
Again the heavens opened in the afternoon, what is with all this rain? And thunderstorms, holy hannah, we've had some beauties this summer!
Well, it's back to Monday, so I'm heading off to the office. Hope everyone had a GREAT weekend and that you'll have a good week.
Life's fun if you don't weaken,
*okay, you "real" cyclists are not allowed to laugh, no, you can't even giggle, guffaw nor make disparaging comments about the Iron Horse. Okay, I just thought I heard someone!!! *
