So, I don't even remember this picture being taken this weekend...
...which is one of the great benefits of early morning workouts - you're half done with your workout before you ever really wake up.
Something else I want to be able to do in my sleep is change a flat. There is nothing worse than being cold and wet on a rainy ride and finding yourself with a flat (or in MY case, flats have been known to come in pairs...Boo. Hiss.)
I've decided since Mondays are my official rest day, they will now turn over from Monday Morning Dance Party in the a.m. to Doing It In My Sleep Tire Changing Time Trial in the p.m.
I race against myself and tonight I set the bar at 4:02 minutes.
You'll notice I have all the necessary ingredients:
The very dirty bike that I now remember I didn't wash after my ride on Saturday ~
You can see that aerobars are still useful even if you don't use them in the normal type of aerodynamic way - - my cue sheet for the ride fit perfectly across them...
And here are the final necessities for the actual changing of my flat...
...and of course the final piece of equipment would be my finger which is used for the bloody finger test. I felt pretty good about 4:02 and we'll see what improvement I can make next Monday. Any guesses on how much time I can shave off next week?
Do you know how to change a flat? Have you ever had to change one during a race?
