As someone who never rode bikes when they were a kid, starting bike riding was scary for me. Since starting last year I've come a long way, but in order to be prepared for this upcoming race, I've got to train intensively (daily) while making sure I don't cause any injury to my legs/knees/hips, etc. Today we rode a flat 30 with our group which was awesome. We are lucky to be in a group with a lot of strong riders, some who are great at endurance, other at hill climbs so we have a good mix. My training will basically consist of shorter rides with steeper hills (hill training) mixed with longer endurance training rides, as well as physical therapy and weight training. Basically, if I sound at all crazy within the next 12 weeks, it's because I will be getting my butt kicked! Wish me luck...
We're missing a few people today but this is our amazing bike squad, also known as "The Coastbusters"

If you want more in depth info on biking, follow my hubby over at blissful cyclist, he provides so much great information on biking and how to spring back from injury. Let's all just hope I make these next 12 weeks. Happy Sunday you lovely folks!
