Week one complete, all workouts completed, nutrition was on track and I'm tuckered! but yayyawnyay I got out on the bike yesterday too. I drove the route and it's 2.5kms from where I start to the turn around. Jackie from the club had told me it was only 2kms so I was happy to see it's a bit longer than that. There is virtually no traffic there on a Sunday morning which was awesome, except one guy that was pulled over to the side having a conversation on his cell and then a nap. I saw loads of cyclists who are all very polite by the way. I tried very hard to be polite back but I'm still not comfortable enough to wrench my hand off the handlebars at all to give 'the wave'. Now I would like a route that has little traffic and is about 5kms end to end, any ideas? I know I'm a baby but the bike still freaks me right out.
Today I start all over again in an hour with swimming and I really need this coffee.
Wanna see a real ironman?
