Did you just put on some clip on's?
Well...I spent 4 hours at the Bike Pedlar last night after everyone had gone home and locked up (except for the one guy who stayed) while Stephen fit my bike into the appropriate position. He said it's the same position the Olympians use? He called it something abbreviated...I forgot the letters. Anyway, he spent a lot of time getting it right.
I had to buy everyone beer for keeping them out late. So technically, yes, I did ride them while drinking....but on a trainer.
Hey Jeff- open water Friday?
So you have time to post here, but not answer your phone. I see how it is.
BTW, had my first therapy appointment yesterday. The people at Vandy sports medicine seem to really know their shit. I'll be working with the trainer that works with the track athletes there. Plus, she's HOT. Always an added bonus. I know I'm not going with Jim, but you pushing me is a big reason why I've ended up getting help and not being a passive hippie. So, thanks. Mom.
Andrew - you're about 5"10" aren't you? I've recently realized the bike I bought is way too big (I think it's a 63 cm). I guess that's what I get for buying one from someone who's 6' 3".
Do you have a road bike that you want to sell (or do you know anyone about 5' 10" who has one)? I only paid $100 for the bike I have now and it's done ok to get me started, but I think I really need one that fits.
BTW - are you doing the Manchester triathlon this weekend?
Jeff - I hope they get you running again soon. I'd like to see what the first 50 yards of a 2:38 Flying Monkey Marathon looks like in November
The Logic of Long Distance
I have a time trial (TT) bike that I've been using for Tri's that I can sell you. I'll sell it for $1500.
(Probably not what you're looking for)
I'd suggest checking out Craigslist for a good used bike. You could probably find something decent there. What do you want it for, cross training, Tri's?
I will not be doing Manchester. I'm done with Tri's for this year, focusing on trying to get my BQ now, and then I'll start trying to get ready for Tri season in January. I'm going to try to take it a lot more serious next year. But for now, it's just running baby!
