Wordless Wednesday – Coordination

…or lack thereof.  This is what your legs look like when you are less than graceful and trying to learn to use clip in pedals for the first time.  This triathlon thing is hard.

Clips ins bruises

Pictured: bloody left knee and bruised right calf.  Not pictured? The grapefruit sized bruise on my right thigh.

Happy Wednesday!

    • LOVE this comment. Maybe if I get the permanent tattoo, no one will notice when I get real grease and bruises on top of it?

    • Breaking my wrist is one of my biggest fears! Fortunately my legs and shoulders took the brunt, but I am afraid that I won’t be as lucky in the future :/

  1. Welcome to the club, I still topple over clipped in. Did it once already this year, it mostly hurts the ego more than the body.

    • Yay! I thought you had fallen off the face of the earth! Boo for veterans falling from clip ins. I have no hope then!

  2. Ouch! Hope that you are okay!
    Falling is part of the learning curve – I can’t tell you how many times I’ve fallen while clipped in. In fact, I did just a few months ago, in front of my coach (or right behind her – she didn’t actually see me fall but did see me getting up. So embarrassing!).

  4. Ooo! You already had your first fall?! Now that is out of the way! Woo hoo! I have had my clipless shoes for a year and STILL haven’t had my fall. Sigh. I hope it’s not this weekend, lol.
