Bike down for 2 weeks or so...
Well, I crashed and FUBAR'd my rear wheel, chain and derailleur. Luckily I wasn't hurt, but there is about $200 in damage easily to my bike.
I won't have free money until around July 15th, and I have my first triathalon Aug. 13, plus the Hotter Than Hell Aug. 27.
Obviously I will be able to replace them and still have about 4 weeks to spin up again,
I will be taking about 2-3 weeks off the bike.
I have upped my run to 6 days a week on my schedule to compensate for this,
I'm afraid I'm going to be screwed.
I've busted my ass to get this far, I'm down to 199 lbs. and everything was going smooth, now this. My concern is that I'll DNF this simple sprint triathalon I've got as my primary goal.
Do you guys think the running/swimming will help me continue in my training for the 2-3 weeks without the cycle?
