Lollygagging

I'm still in love with my bike. Hurray, and big surprise, eh? Still don't have a picture with Lucky to post, but soon enough, soon enough. (Right, who am I kidding, I'm the biggest procrastinating putter-offer I know...)

I've been conciously putting more miles on the bike lately. I signed up for the Lazyman's Triathalon, a 5 week promotion through the YMCA. It's called the Lazyman's Triathalon because the goal is to complete a full Ironman's Triathalon in those 5 weeks. Their mantra is Swim. Run. Bike. Rest. It's pretty cute, if I do say so myself. This whole ordeal kicked off on July 1st. True to my usual style, I'll probably end up packing most of the distance in the last two weeks. Oh, well, at least I'm aware of how I operate, right? So here I go, determined to Swim 2.5 miles, Run 26.2 miles, and Bike 112 miles all in a 5 weeks. I will do this. There are people who do this in a 24 hour period. I can certainly polish it off in 5 weeks. Fingers crossed that I don't slack-off too much. :)

Distances completed as of Thursday, July 12, 2007:
Swim: 0 miles
Run: 10.6 miles
Bike: 24.77 miles

Not too shabby, all things considered!

Oh I am so jealous of you and your bikeness! I still mourn the loss of my Trek. :( Kudos on the trianthlon concept though, that sounds like a great deal. Keep up the good work!

And thanks for commenting on my blog, it's so weird to think that people actually read this stuff :)

Yes, I second any participation in YMCA programs. I did the Countdown to summer since I was manic for the Inca Trail - thought why not get flip flops and a t-shirt then?

Neither of which I have brought to Vancouver, oops!

Keeping blogging, I'll add you to my blog list :-)
