So, I think I failed to mention one very important part of my journey into the Triathlon world. I don't have a bike. One MINOR detail. I know what I would like, but then there is the whole budget thing working against me as a more important set of wheels (my 1998 Explorer with 275,000 miles on it) needs to be replaced. I am hoping Santa knows just how good I have been this year and brings me one under my tree!
I have been looking through the classifieds trying to find some overly anxious person with a huge wallet that bought a bike they never ended up using and are selling it for practically nothing just to make room for their skis or something. No such luck just yet. I do need to stop into Bikers Edge by my work and have them even tell me what size of bike I would ride! This is all so new to me I have no clue! Anyone have tips they would like to share? I know nothing about this.
I think the area that I am weakest in for the whole tri thing is the cycling. I a strong base for running, know enough to build on the swim, but cycling....nada. I have been reading all I can on tri in general, but also cycling as much as I can. That is what I did when I got into running, read Runner's World, and tons of running blogs that I still follow. Anyone that has recommendations for me, I am all ears!
Wish me luck, I am going to need it!
