Is there hope for me?
Here's the deal. Since riding my MS 150 nearly a month ago, I've only managed 2 bike rides: one on the roadie and one on the MTB, about 13 miles each.
What have I been doing instead? Well, I took the time to concentrate on my running and ran a 5k race on Saturday. (Reached a new Personal Best time of 27:25. YAY!)
Meanwhile, I'm considering doing a run/bike biathlon Oct. 19th. Am I nuts to think I'd be ready for that by then? :confused: It would be a 5k run followed by a 16 mile bike ride. I've never done one of these before.
The kicker is... I'm going on a backpacking trip for a week this month. Will these 1 or 2 week-long 'holes' in my training time affect me adversely? I don't expect to finish first, but I don't want to be last to cross the line either.
Thoughts? :confused: Essentially, I have a month to get my act together.

...what's your goal?
