So I am gearing up for Spring Forward 15K this weekend! I have all of the ingedients to concoct a semi-gross sounding protein shake for both Saturday and Sunday morning. I also have to find my blender. I know I have one. I wanted a Magic Bullet one year for Christmas and got a regular less pricey blender instead. I think I've used it once..
I have another biggish ride (for March!) on Saturday. I am going to try to do it outside again if the weather cooperates. I also have a very strict nutrition plan to follow so maybe I won't die (bonk?) like I did last weekend. Hopefully it will also be less painful. I'm hoping to solve the painful riding next week by borrowing an Adamo saddle from Jason (and if I like it I will buy my own) and getting a fit done on Thursday by Jim Hogan at Geneva Bicycle Center. I have needed a fit for the last year (ever since I started doing higher mileage on my bike) but just never got around to it due to schedule, laziness, money, etc. I KNOW I cannot ride an Ironman bike leg on my ill-fitting bike right now because of massive amounts of uncomfort. So I am fixing it. Money be damned, it's necessary! If I can get a saddle that is comfortable I will be fine in aero, although I do think I need my aero position adjusted as well because my neck and back start to hurt towards the end of a long-ish ride. Regardless, it's getting done! Yay!
