Fisherman's Festival was this weekend as well so that was a lot of fun. It is an event held mostly for the locals. However, as it gains more news coverage, it is becoming an event that draws some tourists to the area a little earlier in the season than usual. Saturday is when all the crazy events are held. First thing in the morning is the cod fish relay. Here is a little look of what that entails:
Tough Chik shirt. (I look tough, don't I?)
After my stellar performance at the tug-of-war, I had to head out of town 2 hours north to pick up my new bike!! I was so excited to get this thing. I had to wait until I got back from vacation and then also for the weekend where it was such a drive to get it. I was heading back to my old college town, Orono so after picking up the bike, I took a detour to do a drive through of my alma mata. University of Maine. It has changed quite a bit since I was there
My bike is now at home with me and I can't wait to try it out. The seller also gave me bike shoes and clips so I don't have to buy them. I do need to practice with the clips a bit first so I don't kill myself while trying to dismount. I'm going to practice on the spin bike first and I may switch out the pedals for the regular ones until I feel comfortable that I'm not going to break my leg because I can't unclip fast enough. My next tri is June 5 so that is coming up pretty quickly. I'll need to decide about the clips before then.
I'm dropping the bike off tonight at the local bike shop just for a quick check. I need the seat a little higher and I can't switch the gears on the front. It won't go down to the lower gear. The back one works fine. Not sure if it's operator error (most likely) or equipment failure. I also want them to put a computer on for me. I need to know how fast and far I'm going! Other than that, I think the bike is good to go. I hope to be able to ride it Friday or Saturday.
So now that we are back on schedule and trying to prepare for a race, I'd better get back to a regular routine and the best way to do that is to post that here and hold myself accountable. Plans for the week:
Mon: spin/cardio tennis/run at night (since it's going to rain every other night this week)
Wed: spin/strength class
Thur: spin/cardio tennis
Fri: swim (I haven't done that in a month! Hopefully, those kids are done with their swimming lessons so I can have my lap time back!)
No rest for the weary. Most likely I'll loose either Sat or Sun because my daughter needs to have a birthday party. We'll see.
