Taper - Day 1

Not terribly successful today since my easy run turned in 7:30's around the lakes! HR spiked at 178. Whoa. But my hamstrings felt good. More use of 'the stick' tonight (I must confess, while watching The Batchelor finale). Did yoga this morning also, which felt pretty good.

Got my road bike fitting this evening in Grand Performance. I've had the bike 3 years but of course I haven't looked at it never mind sat on it since I got the Orbea. But I would like to use it for some training - especially in crappy weather etc. I must have changed the way I position myself over the years - or else it was just a real bad fitting to begin with as Jeff made loads of changes to the set-up!! And I got new bars since I've gotten very comfy with the tri bike set up. It's an aluminum frame, way heavier than the Orbea so it will be harder work... so that when it comes to the racing it will be like a breeze! Or at least that's the plan.
