I have been thinking about investing in race wheels, and Flo Cycling keeps coming up in my research. Those of us that get addicted to triathlon usually also get sucked into the gear race. I have tried to moderate my gear purchases for a number of reasons. One of which is that I generally don’t like to spend money. Another is that I don’t want to be the guy that shows up at the local race completely decked out with the most expensive bike and every gadget imaginable only to finish in the middle of the pack. If I’m going to look fast than I want to be fast.
As promised, I have a progress report for Milestone #1 as I prepare for 140.6. For my non-triathlon friends, I hope this post provides you with a little glimpse of preparing for and participating in an endurance race.
When I signed up for my first full-distance triathlon (140.6 miles) last November, my plan was to take the training in steps and set some milestones along the way. First step was to get my training base back and then get a race under my belt. After all, it had been over a year since my last race and I needed an early gauge of my fitness level.
