Bike 31 miles
This one was easy in some respects because I didn’t actually have to get on the bike too many times to get it done (maybe 4 or 5 times?) and bad in some respects because I didn’t actually have to get on the bike too many times to get it done. I was hoping, I think, to get into a better habit in terms of riding my bike several times a week to prepare for the triathlon next month.
I think that I’m still, on some levels, scared of riding my bike. I still dislike riding in traffic, I worry I’m going to fall, I don’t feel confident that I actually know when to shift and stuff like that. I think hills are God awful hard and cycling still makes my butt hurt.
I realize that the cure to all of these problems is more time on the bike and 31 miles is just a drop in the bucket of what I need to do.
Bottom line: 31 miles is better than nothing but not a game changer in terms of tri prep.
