I BOUGHT A BIKE!!!

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

So after complaining that I didn't want to spend a bunch of money on this Tri, I have now bought a Tri Suit (got a great deal from www.swimbikerun.com for $29.99 for top and bottom each (normally $59.99) and then this morning I broke down and bought a Road Bike! I figure even if I don't do another Tri, I want a bike so I can do some outdoor exercise during the summer, since I don't like to run in the heat.

Bike should arrive in the next 2-3 days and I look forward to getting on it! I'm going to test out the saying "As easy as riding a bike!" I've had some people tell me about getting clips, aero bars, etc. etc. and I honestly don't want to hear about anything else I need to get LOL! The only other thing I'll buy is a helmet which I'll get from Walmart for $16 (an Ironman friend of mine gave me the thumbs up for it's quality).

My local Rec Center pool opens next week so I'll go there as it's the same distance as the pool I'll be swimming in for the Tri. I went by to look at it today and each lap is 25 yards (Mom's pool is a little over 10 yards). Wonder if I can get from one end to the other...

The adventure continues...Wishing all of you an awesome day!
