I’ve had my Tri bike for several days now. I’m still enjoying the excitement of owning a new bike. ‘Sparky’ is currently being housed in our dining room. I find that everytime I walk by him I want to hop on, and oftentimes do. I know this excitement will more than likely fade, but I am enjoying it now. Not to mention, by hopping on, my body is adjusting to the fit of the bike.
I knew there’d be an adjustment in riding a Tri bike versus what I was used to. But I must admit, I think it’s going to be a larger adjustment than I originally thought. Mind you it’s been several weeks since I’ve ridden my bike since I’ve been targeting 5Ks. However, with the Tri bike I feel like I’m so out of shape. I’m tiring easier and my legs are sore the next day. I attribute this to the different geometry of the bike.
So it looks like I have a bit of a challenge on my hands. But, if I learned anything from D being in the Marines, I must Adapt and Overcome. I’ve never let an obstacle stop me before and this is no different (with the exception of doing pushups. I can’t do a pushup to save my life, no matter how hard or long I’ve tried. Any helpful hints on doing them are greatly appreciated!)
Be Grateful and Keep Smiling =)
