Week 6 of training has started, and I am so tired, I am practically drooling on myself. Oh dear...
This morning's workout
was brutal! I went to the Y and did workout #33 in the pool (1 hour), followed
by an hour run on the treadmill. To say I was tired and hungry after,
would be a major understatement! lol Last night, I bouldered for an
hour, so as of now, my arms and shoulders are good and dead. lol I
think I am going to sleep well tonight.
Last night I had some preliminary fit adjustments made to my new bike, (who by the way still does not have a name!) 1.0 looked at my numbers from the fit he did for me back in August with The Girl, and we made some changes on my new bike. Unfortunately, we found that my knee isn't lining up with the pedal spindle, and he is thinking that my seat is too for back. Essentially, I may need a zero offset seat post.
I called Bothell Ski and Bike, because I decided that I wanted Donnie to do my re-fit. He has years of experience, and I truly think he is the best in the business. I was hoping that they would do it for free, (because it is still within a year of my last fit and all of the measurements are still good) but no such luck. I was also hoping that they would do an exchange on my seat post, or at least maybe give me a deal on a seat post if I gave them mine, but they wouldn't go for it. John is usually pretty good about working deals with me, but I guess this wasn't my day for "let's make a deal." He did explain that my seat post is pretty useless to him since they come standard on most bikes, so people then want to do exactly what I am wanting to do, and then he is stuck with a bunch of seat posts that he cant move. I totally get that. He does have a business to run after all. I don't know, maybe John is mad at me because I went somewhere else to
get my bike... Most likely it isn't personal. I'm sure he lost a lot of business that he would have normally gotten had Cervelo not had this Share the Ride deal going on. That had to suck. I'm going to talk to him when I see him next...let him know that I'm still loyal. :)
Even if it all makes sense, I still have the right to be crabby about having to spend the money! (PZ-you big bitch.)
Oh...what's that I hear?? It's the sound of money being sucked into the
enormous vacuum of my expensive hobbies! *sigh*
Zero offset seat post: $150
