It's Thursday already?
Wow. Time flies when you're training well.
The week has shaken out like this:
Sunday- 11.7 mile ride to, around, and home from the tri course.
Monday- 4.13 run
Tuesday- things got interesting.* 4 mile ride, then a brick of 12.6 miles followed by a hard mile (7:15) and a half mile cool down
Wednesday- 2.57 easy run, core work. Later, I rode 2.57 while my husband ran.
Thursday- I'm going to run today. Whether it's one mile or three or five, I haven't decided.
But back to Tuesday.
I started out by turning on some music before shoving my phone in my bento box- it would be nice to hear a random song each time I had to stop so that I'd have something new to get stuck in my head at different times. I got about two miles away from home and decided I needed to add more air to my tires. I headed back, and as I approached a stoplight, unclipped my left foot-why, I don't know, because every other time I've ridden, I only unclipped the right.
As I'm rolling to a stop with the wrong foot unclipped, it happened.
In slow motion.
Just as Ke$ha started to sing, "it's going down/I'm yelling timber!"
All I could do was lay there and laugh... Until I noticed the truck across the rode, so I got up, still laughing, waved and gave a thumbs up.
I didn't even have a scratch. See? Still smiling.
(My shoulder was sore the next day, though)
But I was really annoyed when I got home because we didn't have the right kind of pump, and I figured this out after I had taken the cap off and caused my tire to deflate some more, so I had to drive to the local bike shop to get the presta valve adaptor before I could fix it.
And that's why I had a 4 + 12.6 mile ride.
Ever fail to unclip and fall? I'm glad it happened already. Now I know I can handle it, so if it happens during the tri, I (hopefully) won't freak out.
Favorite guilty pleasure songs right now? Pitbull/Ke$ha almost always make the list. I'm debating downloading some Shakira, too. Anything that keeps me moving!
