Because of weather and time constraints I did not get on the road with my bike as much as I wanted to. A few seasoned Triathletes suggested backing off on the running and do more biking. The beginning of my week was light on the trainer but Saturday was a 60 mile ride to make up for it.

During this 60 mile ride, I was introduced to a new concept called “The Bonk.” You can read about it HERE or you can just do a Google search for “The Bonk.”

Around mile 50 I felt lightheaded and weak from calorie deprivation so Jason handed me a Gu pack and I was a new man.

This was a very humbling event and I look forward to all of the new experiences that come with training for a new sport.
