Sorry, I couldn't think of a title for this post. After meeting with my group to discuss our group project yesterday, I came home to an empty house. Turns out that the in-laws took the kiddo to see her cousins and I had time to hop on the treadmill! I only did 30 minutes of intervals...had I known the in-laws wouldn't be back for 3 hours, I would have done more. Oh well! It did give me time to work a little on our group project.
By the way, I am having a hell of a time figuring out how to edit our video. We have Windows Movie Maker on our computer, but it isn't compatible with the files from our camcorder. I downloaded a free trial version of WinDVD Creator, but I can't seem to get it to do what I want it to do. If anyone out there in cyberland has any words of advice or tips, please let me know. I still have 3 weeks to figure out how to get this done!
Speaking of advice and tips, I am officially ready to buy a new bike (thanks to my bonus at work!). The hubby and I went shopping on Tuesday of last week and I am having the hardest time trying to decide what to do! Do I get an entry-level, but still good bike (i.e. Trek 1.2/1000, Specialized Dolce, Cannondale Synapse 6)???? Or, do I go a step up for a bike with better components like a better rear derailleur, some carbon fiber (like the front forks & seat post)? Or, do I keep looking? I know there are other brands out there that I still haven't seen yet.
My goal after having the baby is to get my swimming up to par and train for a few sprint-distance triathlons. However, I would also like to train for longer rides like the MS 150, Hotter than Hell, or something similar....in that case, I can imagine that the carbon fiber would be nice. Honestly, I don't want to go much higher price-wise than say the Specialized Dolce Elite. So far, I think I prefer the Trek to the Specialized, because it just felt more comfortable. I felt like I was really reaching on the Specialized...of course, I know that can be adjusted. Ugh, I am the world's worst when it comes to making these decisions!
