Cor! My new bike is brilliant! I got an Allez Elite on the cycle to work scheme. It’s also the first time I’ve owned clipless pedals.
Went for a cycle on Saturday, from Mum and Dad’s. To Pen and Rogers and then round the half marathon route and back. Was fairly easy. Cat was on a mountain bike so we couldn’t go massively fast. Got some little hills in, nothing too crazy though.
30k in total
Straight off the bike into a run in Vinters Park..
Wow! For the first 1000m my legs were all over the place. Really difficult to run at all. Then they were ok, but then I hit a wall. Just could not run anymore so had to walk. Walked for about a minute or so, then started running again and everything was fine. Well, I say fine. As fine as I can be after getting off a 30k bike ride and running round a park in 30deg heat!
4k on the run.
Similar to the Tri on the 25th September. Should be ok for that.
