We're on Day 9 of waking up & working out before work. Yay!! Yesterday, I ran.
I found something that I don't like at Trader Joe's.
Any idea what these
have in common? One being that I've probably lost my mind, (again), but that's not it. Give up?
Yes, I am. . What's Rocketchix you ask? A Triathlon. Not one of those 5150 or Iron Man things. This is a "mini" Tri I guess you'd say. All female, 200 yard swim, 12 mile bike ride followed by a 2 mile run. My friend Allie has magical powers & has somehow convinced me to do this with her. Originally, we were doing the Duathlon. Just a 2 mile run, 12 mile bike ride & 2 mile run again. It's bad enough I have to wear a bicycle helmet but I totally draw the line at a swim cap. Allie is very convincing so now I"m wearing a bicycle helmet & a swim cap. The race isn't until July. Our friend Cindy does some of those 5150 things but she started off with Rocketchix so she has lots of equipment she's letting us borrow including a road bike. I didn't know the bikes were different. Those shoes in the picture are the "clip in" type. Let me tell you clip in scares me & it's definitely something I have to practice. I can always put something called cages over the pedals & wear regular shoes. I'm leaning towards that. Allie already crashed trying to ride clipped in. I wasn't able to get clipped in on my own so I'm at a stand still! We have a shopping trip planned this weekend to buy the dreaded helmet. That's something Cindy didn't have extra & we've also been instructed not to go to Walmart to buy one. . So as you can see, there's not a lot going on here!
