Kid at Christmas

Like a child who receives a new toy and wants everyone to see it and ooh/ahh and play with it incessantly - I couldn't resist a second ride after dinner tonight.  It was still against the dastardly wind and starting to get kind of dim at the end.  So after I showed my husband how I clip in and out (disappointed he didn't ooh and ahh), I took off for another 6.3 miles.  I wanted to go further, but I didn't have my lights (their on the mountain bike) and I had minimal reflectivity.  I did take a water bottle this time.  Yay me!  Felt like I pedaled hard, but my speed was actually a tad slower (though still faster than on my mountain bike).

CTER 140.6:

Swim: 2.02/2.4
Bike: 83.8/112
Run: 34.5/26.2

  3. I'm jealous! I have a new bike and I've only taken it outside twice in the last month. Mostly its because Boston is a seriously dangerous place to ride, even in the suburbs, so there's no going out in the morning or evening--too much traffic. It's going to be cold this weekend, but I may try to get outside anyway--the trainer is killing me!
