I kept things light today. I had aerobars, a water bottle to place between aerobars and a mph/cadence computer put on my bike today!! It was fun riding with them but a bit scary as your stability is quite different. I will need to get used to this type of riding but as of now I am enjoying them! I only made it up to 20 mph on the bars and just over 24 mph off of them. So I need a bit of practice before I can go faster and feel safe. If anyone uses aerobars and has any tips, please let me know!!
My run today was super short and slow, due to my knee. I did not want to over do things as my race is in 5 days ( hard to believe). I did a walk/run combo for a mile after my ride. My swim today was a slower one as well. 900 yards of steady strokes where I was really focusing on extending my stroke as well as my pull. All in all, it was a great day of easy, fun stuff along with a chance to burn more calories!
Thanks SO much for all the comments regarding my last race! Keep pressing on!
