Workout Results 6/16

Well today I had an unexpected turn of events, but it ended up to be a good thing after all. This morning while getting my bike ready for my workout I somehow managed to loose the chain on my bike. I tried to fix it but I couldn't so I loaded it up in my car and headed off to my bike shop. They fixed the problem and while I was there they worked with me on my gears and aerobars on the trainer and they made some major changes to my bike. The seat was far too low and the handles need to be lowered as well. They also pushed my seat back and fixed my cadence computer. In addition to all of this I got clips and shoes put on which I am SUPER excited about! They take a bit of time to get used to, but I love them already. They are tri specific as opposed to standard biking shoes for road bikes. I went out tonight and started practicing getting in and out of the shoe and I managed to scuff up the back of one of the shoes already trying to get out of them while on the bike, my first training battle wound...better the shoe than me, right..LOL! I can tell this is going to take some practice before my next race, which is in 2 weeks!!

Here is a pic of my new shoes!

So I had a great time at the bike shop and I am forever grateful for their help and guidance. While they were working on my bike I headed out for a run but the heat proved to be too much for me. I ran 1.5 miles then called it quits as I started to feel sick. I then headed to the pool for my swim, and finally the gym for a quick but hard ST session.

It was not the day that I had planned but I worked hard and was able to get a few good workouts in, but more importantly I was able to spend some time learning more about my bike and I now have my clips and shoes! I hope each of you had a successful day and you reached all your goals!

Awesome workout! I am so afraid of the clip shoes. I am paranoid that I am going to need to get my feet out of them in a hurry and won't be able to while riding. I'm such a wimp!

I was worried about that too, but mine have a quick release where all you do is kick your heel out to the side and you are out of them, it is really easy. The part I am going to have to work on is getting into the shoe while it is on the bike and the same goes for getting out of it, that is how I scuffed them up today on the road. Oh well, it is all part of the learning process I guess!

Those shoes look really cool. I would be terrified of using them, so I'll just leave that to you. LOL

RunTX said...

like the shoes; with all they did at the bike shop was it expensive?

Jen's Journey said...

Well, the shoes and clips were not cheap, but I think they were worth it and the service was free because I bought my bike from there and I know the people. It is a great place!

Love the new shoe!
I use to have a pair of the clip on shoes for in class spinning. THEY WERE THE BEST. SO many times before I used the clip in I would be pushing so hard and my foot would fly off the peddle ( OUCH!!!!) YOU are going to love these shoes!

You will love the shoes because they really even out your pedal stroke and keep your legs inline. I bought them for indoor cycling classes and would never ever do a spin class without them. That being said, be safe using them to ride outdoors!
