A kid’s point of view: 2 new cycling PRs!

PR number one...

PR number one…

By Colleen, age 12

I got an awesome cycling PR last night after softball practice! The fastest I ever rode before at the Y was a 6-minute mile. But last night I rode my first mile in 4:59 and then I got to the 2-mile  mark in 8:31. Which means I rode the second mile in 3:32! Can you believe that?

... and PR No. 2. I still can't believe it!

… and PR No. 2. I still can’t believe it!

You know how I did it? 8-ball pool. I was playing a multiplayer game with my friend Briley on the Ipad. Whenever it was Briley’s turn, I would absolutely pedal my hardest. Then when it was my turn, I’d ease up just a little bit.

This is a picture from cross country. I don't have a soccer picture yet.

I am determined to do everything I can to make my goal!

Mom and I are in the homestretch of the YMCA triathlon. We need to finish up on Sunday. I have 41 cycling miles to go and 1 swimming mile. Mom has 26 cycling miles to go and 1.25 swimming miles.

Here’s my plan: Tonight after Ben’s baseball game I will go to Grandma and Grandpa’s to ride their exercise bike. I plan to ride 6 miles at a time, then take a power nap. It might turn into an all-nighter, who knows?

Then on Saturday Mom and I plan on swimming  at the Y until we are done with that part, then grab some lunch at Subway and come back and do some cycling. Wish us luck!
