chirunner: I didn't taco the front wheel, but it's definitely not true anymore. Really not sure my WalMart wheels are worth $20/ea to get them trued. As far as training tires go, I'm going to use what I have because I'm planning on dropping from 700/32 to /28 and I'll use the stock tires to train with for now.


yeah I would not worry about the front wheel then. Well replace not true. Of course if you hit the bike trainer you will not need to replace the wheel yet until spring either.

Sunday Update:

Not much to say at all. I'm still trying to work training time around the kids being back in school and Amy's rotating schedule. Don't ask about the schedule because It's days, nights and rotating days all in one .

Swim: Escaped to the Y Monday morning and got in a relaxing 1000yds.
Bike: Nada. It's hard to find even an hour away from the house at the moment. I need to get my hands on a trainer, BADLY
Run: .4mi, unloaded groceries, then 1.0mi on Tuesday.

I suppose I can write last week off as post-race R&R... yeah, right. I can say what I want, but it doesn't mean I believe what I'm saying. I do have a needs list that I am working on for training and next season:

***ABOVE ALL*** - Need an indoor trainer!!!
1) 39/53 crankset & bottom bracket. I overspin way too easy. Also my BB has started tapping
2) Speed/Odometer for the bike. All I have is Strava. I'd be nice to know how fast/far I'm going in real time. Cadence would be nice, but not necessary.
3) Handlebars/Aerobars. Cruddy Kent 2-piece bars suck and twist grip gear shifts aren't much better (I have the parts to fix that !)
4) I'd like to find a better wheelset. Hitting a dog jacked my front a bit, and I'd like to have a cassette-friendly rear instead of a freewheel... but now we're in the "wish zone"


My apologies for dropping off for a while. I've been crazy-busy with work, "back to school" for the kids and trying to squeeze in training too.

in answer to your bike needs... I love my Kurt Kinetic fluid trainer! I use it all winter and even during the year when outside is not an option. The cateye w/ cadence is great. It gives me distance and cadence, which is what you need to log the training.

I've been focusing on my bike training in preparation for the Princeton Ironman 70.3 coming up this Sunday. I have to admit, with everything going on, I'm ready for the race season to be over! I can't wait to get into a maintenance mode where I can swim, bike or run for fun and fitness, not with a goal race in mind.

Wow, I'm so far behind I do t even know where to catch up so I will just comment on what I can remember

Diets - I've done the low carb with some success but it definitely doesn't work with my endurance training. My wife says I'm like the Snickers commercials, only with carbs instead of junk food. I've been on the opposite end of the spectrum lately and am eating 200-400g of carbs per day, mainly fruit and veggies with some rice (most other grains make me sick)

Trainers - Craigslist is your friend! I know several people who have scored great deals that way. Couple an indoor trainer with trainerroad.com and you are all set! I bought the Garmin speed and cadence sensor for my bike (the old one so it works with my old watch) and trainer road estimates power and a bunch of other variables.

Crap to Buy - AMEN! My wife usually complains that she doesn't know what to get me for Christmas... Well not this year! Every time I turn around I either find something or my team is suggesting something I need.


I've been mountain biking a lot of late. We have 3 or 4 awesome trails within a few miles of my house so I get out 2-3x per week. My old bike from college (15 years old) was falling apart and the guy who runs the bike shop I frequent made me an offer I couldn't refuse so I picked up a new bike. Fortunately it uses the same pedals as my road bike so I can now ride clipless off road, which is really a terrible idea as I fall constantly.

I ran a 10 mile race last weekend as a tuneup for my half marathon in a month and did better than expected. I finished in 1:37 for a 9:42 pace. I ran the Mackinac Bridge with my wife earlier this year (5 miles) and my pace was 11:54, so big improvements!

I have a bike race this weekend, Le Tour De Donut. You have to eat at least one donut at every aid station and they deduct 3 min from your time for each one you eat. It will be my first group ride so I'm looking forward to it.

My second triathlon is in two weekends and it should be the last for the year as temps have been in the 40's and 50's of late.

Nice work with the run times!

I'd like to hear how this one goes... I daresay I'd be the guy finishing the ride with a negative time!

And you know we're going to want to hear the race report on the tri!

X2 on the run and the need for the race report!!!!!

The donut race.. I was in Raleigh just after the finish of a donut run. Can we say YUCK? Doing on the bike should be much easier on everyone involved!

Could someone tell me where you can log body measurements on this site? I saw it yesterday but can't find it today. I am starting to use BT instead of my other calorie count site. (I am trying to eliminate the need for multiple apps and sites).

Oh.. and I signed up for my first 70.3 yesterday.

Gulp

just got real!

Speaking of stuff to buy... my wife showed me the ad for the new Specialized S-Works Evade helmet. Almost as aero as an aero-helmet, but with the ventilation of a road helmet. When I said, cool, but I have a helmet, she replied, there's always Christmas! Love her!

Thanks! I looked everywhere but there.

It is the HITS- Orlando. My hubbie and two friends are doing the sprint (my husbands first!) and hopefully, two other friends will do the full. It was kind of spur of the moment. It seems I can train better in the "off season" for early season races over summer training when everything goes on around here. At least, that is the hope.
