Throwback Thursday

Clips ins bruises


I woke up on Tuesday morning with a killer sore throat and stuffy nose which has only gotten worse.  Trying to slog through my workout on Tuesday felt like I was starting from scratch which led me to look at some of my old pictures.  I really had no idea what I was doing when I first started triathlon.  I didn’t own a bike when I signed up for my first 70.3 (do as I say, not as I do!).  The picture above is from the first time Fella tried to teach me how to clip in to my shiny new bike.  Needless to say, it did not go well.  But I got better.  So if you’re struggling in your training or your weight loss or whatever it is you may be struggling with….remember, it will get better.

  1. Ouch! My uncle-in-law/coworker has done like bajillion triathlons (or something), and recently he came to work with a slight limp and a huge bandage on his hand. He’d just finished a 20-mile ride and was about 3 houses away from being home when he hit a pothole (took his eyes off the road to get some water) and basically just fell over because he was clipped in. He ended up scraping up his hand and arm pretty badly, and got huge bruises on his thighs from the seat! I know it hurt, but every time I picture him just helplessly falling over, I can’t help but chuckle! This happened about 2 weeks after he had his first real bike crash, so I (jokingly) suggested he take up a less dangerous sport 😉
