Tuesday Bike and Weights

I woke up early and headed directly downstairs to my bike. I started riding at 4:15. Another great workout of a mix of cadence and variable wattage work. I loved it. Swea like crazy. Probably burned off some of those last few chocolate bars that Nadia gave me.

I was into the cool down when I could hear so rythmic sound from the back wheel. It was like I'd picked up a stone or something, which, seeing as I was on my trainer, in the baseement, would have ben pretty hard to do!

There was a small bubble in the tire about the size of the tip of my baby finger. I'd never seen anything like it. I figured I might as well ride it out. It took about 1 minute for it to go off like a firecracker. I got off, figuring the tire was flat, but it wasn't. There's a spot on the tire where the tire blew, but the tube didn't, and the hole isn't big enough for the tube to pop through. So much for a $150.00 tire! I guess I should have spent the $75.00 and bought the proper trainer tire earlier in the season.

I headed over to the club to do my wieght stuff. I added in the tricept stuff that Dick had shown me. Christine had me do some one armed tricept thing. Amazing how weak both arms are, but more so how my left arm isso much weaker than the right.
Here's hoping the weather doesn't get as cold as it's calling for tonight. Nadia and I are heading out for that 23k run at 5:00 tomorrow morning!
