I'm still very frustrated when I go to group workouts at how seriously below average I am. OK - not just below average I'm the slowest person on the team :( I try remind myself that it's not a competition etc etc. but still falling so far behind gets a little old after a while.
My new bike did help - I was able to keep the other bikers in view - sorta. The coaches were amazing today though. Very helpful and encouraging
Anyway - the workout...
First Bike loop: 3 Miles, 14:33 min
First Run loop: .72 Miles, 10:22 min
Second Bike loop: 3:5 Miles, 18:39 min (I was really hurting here (from the seat) and ended up coasting much of the end of this ride
Second Run loop: .75 Miles, 11:45 min
I was supposed to do another Bike and another Run but I was hurting so much from the bike seat that I just couldn't bring myself to get back on. When I talked to the coaches about what was going on they took a look at my bike and determined that the seat was tilted too far up. They adjusted and asked if I would do the bike loop one more time. I did, and what a difference! yay! I didn't time that last lap though :(
Total: 3.5 miles
so the totals: 10 miles biking and 1.5 miles running. Not too bad a job for a first time brick - I was pretty surprised that I made it as far as I did.
