The MAFW picnic rides were cancelled today due to rain. I was really looking forward to my first brick workout in a long, long time and was pretty disappointed when the rides were cancelled. On the way home I suddenly realized that Ironman Wisconsin was going on today, so I decided to do an “indoor brick” on the CompuTrainer and the treadmill. When I pulled the tri bike off the hooks in the basement I noticed that it still has the IMWI and Tri-Bike Transport stickers on the frame, both tires were completely flat and the bike was covered in a thick layer of dust. I don’t think I’ve been on that bike since the race. So I pumped up the tires, and loaded up the IMWI course on the CompuTrainer. I also noticed that the workout room had cobwebs hanging from the corners and most of the light fixtures. I supposed that was fitting as my workout room and my body appear to be in the same shape.
I rode for an hour at a nice aerobic pace, then hopped on the treadmill for a planned 20 min run. After about 13 minutes the achilles started to ached so I cut the run short (15 min). It’s a long way from being Iron Fit, but I’ve dusted off the cobwebs, literally and figuratively.
