Yesterday we had weather in the low high 40’s to low 50’s – it was awesome. I could have ran in shorts if they were not buried underneath all of my winter crap. I am so used to bundling up I don’t think I believed it was really that warm out.
I went with running tights and a thin long sleeve shirt with a wind breaker vest. I was hot as Hades for the entire run. I mean, look at me, I am bright red and sweating my butt off.

I guess I should have dug out my warm weather stuff.
You might be wondering why the heck I didn’t take my bike outside since it was so warm. Well the truth is I just didn’t want to deal with taking it off the trainer, changing the rear tire, riding, changing the rear tire, putting it back on the trainer (because it will snow again). Lame excuse, but it is the truth.
That and I only had a run scheduled yesterday.
And there is approximately a foot of sand in the road and I don’t want to take my new bike out in that yet.
See, listen to me, I am nothing but a bunch of lame excuses. Apparently I didn’t want to ride outside that badly.
Anyway, I am working on my roadie tonight so I can get it outside and keep my tri bike on the trainer until I am ready to take it out. Then I will probably switch them so I have another riding option in crappy weather this summer. I stripped my roadie of some stuff and need to get that all put back on before I can ride it.
I love my Kestrel, it feels really great and I am sure I have a great fit thanks to Kurt at Personal Best Multisport. But I do have a bit of a problem. My lady parts are getting squished by the seat now that my pelvis is in a different position. At first I thought I was just being wimpy so I tried to ignore it. Then I messed with the seat.
Nada. I would say that the limiting factor in me staying aero is that it gets very owie down there so I sit back up. It freaking hurts, and that is not a fun place to ice, let me tell you.
So I asked some folks and decided to order a Cobb Cycling V-Flow Max from All3Sports.com (use code GOTRAKKERS for 15% off!) I am putting it on today for a 2 1/2 hr ride after work. I am running off the bike for about 30 minutes so it will be a good test of the whole set up.

I will let you know what I think, but I really like the design of this. I am using a cloth so the metal on the seat does not get scratched or harmed in anyway so if it doesn’t work for me I can return it.
Not a lot else here to say except that Bailey is planning a fun review of one of his favorite products on Monday that MIGHT include his very first giveaway.
