Training

I officially began training on my new bike today.  I picked it up from Ziggy's last week as well as a pair of biking shorts, a pair of Shimano SPD bike shoes, and a bike computer.  I also spent about an hour and a half getting a professional fitting to make sure I'll be comfortable and efficient on my long rides.

It's still a little cool outside, so I put my bike on a trainer.  According to the computer, I did 10 km in just under a half hour with an average speed of about 22 km/h.  That was a little disappointing, but I had set the resistance on my trainer to one of the highest settings, so it was probably the equivalent of biking uphill the whole time.  Hopefully I'll do better when I actually hit the road.
