Bigger/new bike or not?

Posted: Today at 12:18

It looks to me like you have down tube shifters on that?

If so I had my old Raleigh 531 which I did upgrade a bit but could easily change to index gears and the geometry was never going to be quite right for me.

So I bought myself a new carbon road bike that had index gears and the right geometry to fit me and allowed me to have tri bars and the difference is incredible.

My Raleigh is still in services as my winter bike.

Things you want to say but can't

Databases - if you put shite info in you will get shite info out.

It's not hard concept toe grab is it?

Oh it is?

Apparently I need to specifically explain how each piece of theoretical shite you might decide to put in, in  any one of hundreds of fields , could cause shite out at some point in the future?

This despite the fact that you know the correct info to put in, you just can't be arsed to unless given a specific issue caused by that each and every time?

I think I quit.

Training for a shorter Tri

Woohoo Ali bear you need to stick the turbo in the utility room and turn on the dryer and ride baby ride

 Genius idea, thankfully I turbo in the garage over winter and guess where the tumble dryer is

I've got a girly cycling weekend away this weekend then the trek gets turned into my turbo machine and the faithfull old raleigh comes out to play for the winter.

The only issue is that although my bike could do with improving, my swim and run need even more work.

Well that's done it. I have entered IM Barcelona, conflicting emotions right now but I would have been very sad if it had sold out before I managed to enter so I think I've made the right choice. My Tri-club have picked it as their IM outing for next year so I get to go as part of the gang and should hopefully have a few training buddies.

I have a lot of work to do now!

Well I seem to slowly be regaining some idea of training, managed a turbo a swim and run this week so all bases covered.

Currently on tenterhooks waiting for funds to arrive so I can enter IM Barcelona, hoping that it stays open long enough. It's not sold out before but this is the first year it's an IM from the word go so anything could happen.

I also think it would be nice to do our local half marathon in November and entrie places are getting fewer each day but  I daren't do that until I've managed to sort out Barcelona.

Park run beckons tomorrow morning, urggh I'm not a fan of early starts on Saturdays. Also my HRM seems to not work well on runs,  it's fine on bikes but on runs I'm apparently either uber fit or in some sort of stasis...

I know you get a 4th medial if you complete all 3 races, perhaps you get an extra t-shirt or something as well?
