It's a bit hard for me to get back in the beat after a break in the schedule. I rode to work last Friday and then again yesterday but I haven't taken the time to go out for a run or swim this weekend. I could blame the extremely hot weather that prompted the city to issue a heat warning, but really to be honest it's just plain laziness.

On Friday and then again yesterday, my bike started to make some funny noises. Kinda like a peppergrinder when I pedal hard. I think it's the crank that is giving up. So I made an appointment with my friendly local bike shop to have it checked out and also get the bike ready for race day (~2 weeks away now).


  1. better to get it figured it out now rather than when you're kickin' your triathlon's a$$! :D

  2. I don't blame you fgor hiding out this weekend. It was brutally hot.

    Hope they can fix up your bike for you and that it's nothing major.

  3. I hate it when bikes start making strange noises. My car, also, has started making strange noises. Very bad :)

    I think heat warnings are legitimate reasons for taking it a little easier.
