la nouvelle bicyclette

That's right, my big year this year offers the opportunity to upgrade from the Giant TCR that I've been riding for four years now. This week I found a great deal with my club and bought a 2008 Orbea Ora.
  • Full carbon monocoque construction
  • Truvativ Rouleur carbon crank arms
  • Ultegra components with Profile Time Trial bars & bar-end shifters
  • Brand new Mavic Aksium training wheels
I feel faster already. I took it for it's first spin outside on Friday and I can't wait to ride, and ride some'mor and keep on ridin'.... and when I'm done, I'll ride a little more. I heart my Orbea.

This week was my first full week back in training. If feels so good to be back I can't say it enough. I love training. I never feel better than I do right after a good hard workout. I got back into my training plan easy this week with just one workout a day. Next week, it's back full time with two - three workouts every day. Only 5 months to Ironman you know. I did time trials in the pool this morning and went out for my long run with the club afterwards. I'm not gonna lie, it hurt like hell, but I was really happy with the swim results, and I got in my longest run of the year so far. Can't complain about that. I got to come home, eat and crawl back into bed on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Life is good.

OH - I've got some really exciting news coming soon... I can't say what it is just yet... but stay tuned!
