Rolling Along

This week has flown by, and I am thinking I am going to be saying that for the next month, and then the next, and before I know it, I will be on the start line at my first World Cup. Eeek! 
First up though is the Fast Triathlon in Brazil on January 11th. It's a team-format series of three super-super-sprint races. I haven't raced since August 18th so this will break up the lengthy stretch between races. As much as I am looking forward to it, I am quite glad that it's still a month away as my speediness seems to be hiding these days.

Training is going well.... there isn't too much excitement to report. I am just getting the work done without putting too much focus on the numbers. Some days I have been feeling strong, and others I think the lifeguards are almost ready to do a rescue. Over the years I have learned not to read too much into the paces, times, speeds at this time of year, and just to roll along and put in the work. 

CHEERS, to a good first week of training!

Hey Lauren,

My team is sponsored by argon 18 next year and since I've never ridden them before I was wondering how you liked yours? I think we're getting the gallium, not sure if that's what you ride or not.

Hope your training is going well!

You will LOVE the Gallium, Gillian! It's super stiff, light and responsive and is amazing on the climbs. That's what I've been riding for the past couple of years and will ride again next year.
That's really exciting that Argon is the team sponsor! I hope you are doing well!
