I realize running in the heat on the beach in Miami is slightly better than doing the same in the rain through the concrete jungle in Stockholm. It was about 10°C and the rain might have been -20°C, I’m not sure. You just have to believe me when I say it wasn’t all that great.
I’ve done a little running and swimming this first week, not too much, just to get into the rythm and of course I took my new beauty out for a ride. She was really nice to me and averaging 36,5 km/h on Ironman Kalmar shouldn’t be impossible. Look at her!
In a few weeks, when I’ve gotten a little rest and used to the agressive position on the Cervelo P3 Ultegra 2012 I think that those 250 hour on the bike across USA will prove to be well spent time. If not….what a fail!
On Saturday at 10:00 I have a short duathlon race, 5 km run, 20 km ride, 2,5 km run…and my expectations are low. Since I’m attending swim training at 7:15 that very morning I’m guessing the duathlon will be suffering. What the hell, it doesn’t matter, it’s great practice.[wp_geo_map]
”Fun facts” from my ride across America are coming up any day now…I just have to the math first.
PS. Most people (me included) though I would come home skinnier than Christian Bale in The Machinist, but obviously I didn’t and I’m pretty sure that I’ve seen a hint of a oh-my-god-he-is-actually-looking-fat-look with some of my ”friends”.
