New Gear!April 12, 2007

I’ve invested in some new gear!
My bike leg is clearly my weakness, and I needed a little boost from trading in my old cage pedals to my first set of clipless pedals that I picked up on sale from the LBS last weekend.
I love ’em to death so far! I have just been using them on the trainer so far, so I can get confident enough clipping in/out of them first before heading out on the road, but I can really feel my pedal stroke getting more efficient and powerful.
Next I’ve just got to invest in a wetsuit, to brave the frigid waters of Newfound lake at the Mooseman, and I’ll be all set!
New toys sure get me pumped, but not as much as seeing myself get faster and stronger as the weeks of training fly by. I’ve already lost almost 10 pounds in just over a month since I first started Tri training again, and can see my body changing and getting ready for a new season.
Move video to come later this week, I promise. Please forgive.
