1. Yesterday, I did my first real brick. I biked the kids to school and then biked about another mile and a half. Then I dropped the bike off at home and went for a two mile run. Sadly, my bike speed was about the same as my run speed. And my run speed wasn’t much faster than a walk. I’m pretty sure I got passed by a granny with a walker while I was biking. ;o)
2. Today I took my first spin class. (I know, look at me all cross training and such.) Holy crap! I’m not sure I’ve ever worked so hard in my life. It was only a 35 minute beginner class, but there was a HUGE puddle of sweat under my bike when I was done. I’m also not sure I’ll be able to walk tomorrow.
3. Biking the kids to and from school is kind of an exercise in herding cats. Oh my. It doesn’t help that I’m not a confident bike rider. Staying upright on the bike is a challenge. Staying upright while keeping track of two kids and all the cars in our neighborhood is almost impossible. And it’s kind of embarrassing showing up at school on my rusty Huffy with all the mom’s on their beautiful Treks and other higher end bikes. I admit I’m getting a bit of bike envy. ;o)
And no, there is not a tri in my future. That would require putting my face in the water.
