How to ride a bike?

Posted: 11/08/2014 at 18:22

Thanks everyone. I'll def look into schemes to get me started and there are a few people at my running club that would cycle with me. My lack of confidence is kind of why I chose to challenge myself. May dig out my old mb...but I did hate it!

Aw shucks I knew someone would say that! I was hoping someone would recommend    some great gadgets, turbos, bike computers and the like that would magically make me fabulous!

I've done lots of endurance running and am a confident ows. Now I've entered IM Uk 2015. Trouble is I'm terrible on a bike. I've neither speed or confidence. Haven't ridden  in a few years. I've bought a cheap road bike to get me started. Can anyone please give me some advice on where to start? I'm really afraid I'll time out on the bike.

No charge for me or husband...perhaps as he'd never seen one he didn't realise he could have made himself some easy money!

Medical certificate signed today. The Dr, a runner himself, said he'd never had to sign one of those for any marathon before. Now feel very adventurous!

Sticking head in after a few weeks absence. Sounds like there's been some fantastic running going on. Well done Weedy + Emmy. Great times! 

Update on me is that I've discovered xc. Nothing like running through a load of mud and rivers to make you feel awesome! Bonus is that I'll never be the fastest runner but I am fairly tough and that counts for a lot In xc. Lol. 2 races down and 2 more to go.

weedy race list...can you tag me +RunRichRun for Longridge Pudding Run 8th Dec.

BM not dismissing the physical aspects of post-race recovery I would suggest that there is also a psychological aspect too. Post-race (esp major ones) I certainly suffer a "flatness." Training and looking forward to/obsessing about a major goal leave a void. After a few days of general fatigue and grumpiness I usually enter something else...the more ridiculously challenging the better...in an attempt to recreate the pre-race "high."

Often come down with a cold too...
