The New Addition to the Fleet
The Specialized Transition finally made it home today. It still needs some pedals, a bottle cage and computer yet but it's home. It would be great to get a ride in on it before the weather goes to junk. We'll keep our fingers crossed on that. Today actually would have been a great day, but I've swore off the bikes until after my test in a couple weeks. I hope it wasnt my last chance before the trainer comes out. This bike will take me some time to adjust to and having it on the trainer wont be of much help.
Training for my test is going ok so far. I've been doing some weighted pull ups to assimilate the added weight I'll be wearing for the test. My bench is also progressing nicely. I have to say, I'm enjoying lifting heavy again. It's been a really long time, but the feeling came back quick. I'll never be as powerful and brute strong as I was 15 years ago, but I think what I'm doing for the test will be beneficial for what I want out of my 2010 season.
