I finally took my bike into the shop and was going to get a tune up. They are booked till next week ??? So I talked with the bike show owner and explained that I wanted my pedals loosened for the clip ons, which he kindly did for me, then I said something of how bad I am about filling my tires with air after each ride, so he filled my tires up. So I have a bike that I can start riding and practicing getting in and out of the clips. But there is a duathlon this weekend that I would like to do and i think i really need to have teh cages on the bike again as I am pretty sure I won't be confident enough to race in the clips after just a week (that is if i even get to practice). I found it quite humorous how i interact with the bike guy. I don't use proper terms and i sound so green, i wonder if that bothers them ? I feel ok on the bike and I actually did quite well on it last season in my tris (time wise it was my best portion) but i do not feel like a biker - ever. what about you do you feel like a biker ? if so why or why not ?
Also, hubby kicked ass in the 5 mile race today. He has been cross training but really he has not been running hard...and yet he did sub 7min/miles. He just has it, and that is hard for me. I get jealous of how easy it seems to come to him. He did mention he believes he is 10 lbs lighter and says that makes him faster. I am wondering if I lost 10 lbs it would help ??? I have such a hard time NOT eating sweets I just can't even think about it. I think I feel super deflated after such a bad run last weekend. Is my training worth it ? can I really get better/faster than I am ?
