Quick Update

I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut-off for the last week so I am sorry for the blogless period, however there has just not been that much exciting to report on! I will hit the highlights though.

-I got new pedals! I finally got a set of speedplay pedals that I am going to work on getting on my soon as I get my new shoes to go with the new pedals. I am working on that though. Pretty sure I know what I am getting, I just need to go to the bike store and I get everything right.

- I nearly had a cyclist hit my car today. Notice I said he nearly hit me, not the other way around. I was at a stop sign just waiting and he was just not looking where he was going and tried to be a hood ornament.

-I am going to do a half marathon as a relay with a friend in January! I am excited and I think it will help me learn about pacing while in a big group of people. That way, I can be confident when I do a half by myself at the end of February.

I think that is about it for now. Not as much training going on as should be, but I am trying to get ready for a horse show in November so that is highest on my priority list right now. That, and sleep. :)

Good choice on the speed plays. I have them and love them. What shoes did/are you going to get?

I am planning on getting a pair of pearl izumis, but I am still pretty flexible on that. We will see!

Go for a shoe that has a single or double strap. I really like my specialized shoes. They were a bit pricey, $150 or so but you may be able to find them on sale... Either of these would be a good choice.
