Tighten Up

I want to look good in almost anything that I decide to slip into.

I want to be able to wear my boyfriend out when we go on bike rides.

I want to shave tons of time off of my next half marathon.

I want to do another triathlon.

But most of all, I just want to be happy and feel good on a more consistent basis.

I am a 26 yr old fast food restaurant manager.

-Do another triathlon

My Program:
I'm starting off by writing down what I eat so that I can have that mental accountability kicking into play and stop just mindlessly eating.

I am also riding at least 3x a week, and plan to reincorporate running 2x a week. Plus strength training on my exercise ball.

I live in Buffalo, NY but often travel out to Utica to see my love.

I recently got a vintage Takara roadbike and have put new handlebar tape and a new saddle on her, and am very much in love with her.

I am absolutely open to talking to people, texting emailing, so if you'd like someone to chat with, just let me know!

Other Information:
Love to play darts, love to go out and dance, love to ride bikes, love to relax on the beach, love kayaking, love camping, love fires.

Re: bike shorts: when you start to feel uncomfortable, buy some! I had some tri-shorts (tiny fleece pad) when I first started out so I just wore those when I bought my road bike, but I invested in some cycling specific shorts when I started going on rides longer than 20 miles, due to the dreaded butt chafe / lady parts issues. IIRC Bert's Bikes had some very serviceable shorts on the clearance rack for about $5 - which is amazing. You could check that out the next time you head south to visit Dad, or you could look at something like the outlet section on the REI website. There are usually several good options in the $30 - to $40 range there (which is a big deal, since these things are often $60 and up, all the way to hundreds of dollars). Also consider mountain bike shorts. They look like normal shorts but have the pad inside. How long are your rides now? Do you feel any discomfort, or is what you're doing fine so far?

Another tri??? Yes please! Might I recommend Timberman in Gilford NH on the thir weekend in August? I plan to do the half-iron there because it falls on my school break. They have a companion sprint (I think the day before?) and everyone loves the course and the venue. We're going to camp at the mountain resort nearby, and they have zip line tours of the mountain! So fun! DO TIMBERMAN!
