Clipless Pedals, Swim Assessment & Dropping Weight

Moved up to clipless pedals last week. Did not fall the first ride but hit the pavement right off the bat on ride 2. Fortunately wasn’t moving yet, so only thing hurt was my pride. Can’t believe how much more power I can get with these. It’s going to take lots of time to get comfortable with them, but happy I made the transition.

Had a swim assessment with Coach Dana last Friday and learned all kinds of things I’ve been doing wrong with my swimming. Plan to start Friday morning coached workouts with Coach Chantal. Again, it’s going to take lots of time to implement everything he told me to work on, but glad to be moving in the right direction.

Revised eating plan has been going well. I’ve dropped 5 pounds and am feeling really good.
