Finally, after months of bugging the folks at Jack and Adam’s, I purchased a bike. I went with the Kuota, though it was a super tough choice. I thought the QR was the most stable, the Felt was the most comfortable, and the Kuota was the fastest/lightest, so I went with the fastest/lightest option. It’ll take a little bit of getting used to, but I’m really excited about it! I think this means Robin and I have the same tri bike. Is that right, Robin?
The bad news from the weekend is that I hurt my knee playing tennis yesterday. I felt something as soon as I did it, but it wasn’t terrible, so I played a few more games and tried to shake out the twinge that I felt. Then I went home and realized it was getting more sore by the hour. By the time I woke up this morning, it was super stiff, and I couldn’t run. I ended up walking the Race for the Cure. When I rode afterwards, it felt fine. The cycling motion doesn’t seem to bother it, but running does. I’m hopeful that whatever I did was minor and that the inflammation will go down in a few days. Keep your fingers crossed and say a few prayers for me.
Next weekend, I’m supposed to bike Wurst Fest, which is 62 miles, on Saturday and then run a 10 mile race on Sunday. I really want to be able to do both, but it’ll entirely depend on the knee.
The plan for this week:
Monday: Spin (am)
Tuesday: Swim (am)
Wednesday: Spin (am), Run (am)
Thursday: Swim (am), Run (pm)
Friday: Spin (am)
Saturday: Ride (Wurst Fest)
Sunday: Run (10 miler)
Again, it’ll totally depend on the knee.
Okay, sister. Sorry about the knee. Rest up and heal fast cause you have to run the 10 miler with me. You’re the reason I signed up, and I’m not looking forward to running that one by myself! =)
Congrats on the new bike!! I may start shopping soon as well!!! I hope your knee is feeling better already!
Yay!! Yes, that’s the bike I have. What color did you get? I know you’ll love this bike. I rode Friday for the first time in a while. It was fun!
Mine is black. I got a 2008. I don’t know if it had other color options, but I think it’s beautiful!
