YAY! finally, the weather held and i actually got in a bike ride on the bike! 1.5 hours later, i was pretty darn tired but happy. the adjustment to the handlebars made a world of difference. however, a new problem, there's something going on with the shifting on the bike, so i can't get the chain to go to the largest ring in the front. something else to work on, i guess.
i also need to figure out how to work weight training into my training schedule. urk.
