Less than one week to go until my 200 km bike trek for the lung association of Ontario!
Training like a madman! I can hardly contain my excitement for the event. The weekend of the event falls squarely on the same weekend that my store has to do its quarterly inventory, which I now get to skip out on. A mixture of guilt and glee are upon me, the latter in a higher dose.
I took the bicycle in for a tuneup at the original place of purchase; cables got tightened, adjusted, gears properly oiled and everything tightened. I am ready for this and am literally counting down the days until I can put this on my list of accomplishments.
I have also found something really interesting the weekend after the bike trek in which I am hoping to partake: the Belle River triathlon, which includes a 500m swim, 30km bike and 5km run. The only reason I am considering doing the event rather than having already registered is the monstrous 500m swim. Most people really do not realize how much of a workout a good swim really is, with hardly any muscle in one's body being left unused, especially after half a kilometer. At this point it is a major consideration. For now, I will focus on the bike trek.
