Major goal for 2013: Suck less on the cycling leg. (In other words, go faster, get stronger and stay upright.)
So when Thai suggested we sign up for the seven-week StrikLee coaching session at NorCal, I agreed.
Talk about an ass-kicking. When the coach said we should be doing an "easy 22- to 25-mph pace" between intervals, I would've started laughing hysterically, except that if I had opened my mouth, puke would've come gushing out.
But I survived. And in the end, it was fine and I had fun and there was no vomit.
And I'm planning to do it all again next week.
