New bike is here! and another tri coming up...

Been busy the last week plus with the new bike and lots of training. I need to do the training so my results will justify the bike :) I still have plenty of tweaking and adjusting to do, but at least everything's put together and working!

I signed up for a triathlon in Marble Falls in a couple weeks, so that will be the first test of the new bike. I don't anticipate any huge differences, especially on a 23 mile hilly bike course. But I am excited to get out there and try out not only the new bike, but also all the training. I haven't raced a triathlon since April, so it's time to find out if all the training is paying off...

Speaking of the training, since my last post; I've done quite a bit, including a 100 mile bike ride, 88 mile bike ride, and two 15+ mile runs. And still working out hard on the shorter stuff, trying to increase speed and strength. The heat is making things more difficult, as these 100+ degree scorching temps can really drain you in a hurry.
