On the plus side Matt and I got our birthday presents yesterday! Yup! We got aero helmets! WHEEEEE!!!! Ironically we had both planned on getting each other the helmet as a birthday gift. However neither of us can keep secrets so we both admitted to this on our bike ride over the weekend and decided to get them early so we can race in them at REV!
|Frank looks much better in my helmet than I do! And he is now SMOKIN' fast! Try to get the tennis ball past him now, I dare you!|
Anyways, yesterday we had a swim-bike brick. Matt messed up his shoulder again so I was left to swim on my own after work. I came home to find this fantastic scene in my dining room, I don't think Matt knows I took this video. Paybacks for posting a pic of me peeing in the woods, yes I play dirty ;)
Lets play Tosh.0 and see how many things we can pick on in this video:
- It appears Matt's ADD is in overdrive as he is playing video games, listening to his iPod, riding his bike, and singing all at the same time.
- Can someone please tell Matt the aero helmet will NOT make him any faster on his trainer.
- If you listen closely you can hear Matt's superb singing talents! Broadway anyone?
Anything else I missed?
And back to the training front I'm pretty sure my body is D-U-N done! The past two nights I have woken up with charlie horses in both my right and left calf. This has not happened since HS gymnastics and I remember how fun it was back then to wake up in excruciating pain. Last night on the trainer my patellar tendinitis flared up. Today I am hobbling up stairs and sitting at my desk with a bag of ice on my knee. Think I'm gonna skip out on the bike tonight and see how running feels. Both Matt and I are super freaked out about getting injured this close to race day. But we both said we are going to finish the race unless they take us off on stretchers. CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
