Today was rest day from any triathlon training or was it?
* If you don't count the 30 minute ride on my unicycle in the park with
my son following me on his bike.
* The 30 minute core workout with weights on the ball.
* The 15 minutes spent learning how to freemount the unicycle (and I am proud to say,"I can freemount" which means I can get on the unicycle unassisted).
Then maybe it was a rest day and all the fun I had in extra physical activity shouldn't count towards triathlon training. Not!
My online training log Beginner Triathlete added a Unicycling sport category at my request. Now I can record my unicycling along with my other triathlon training workouts. I guess no rest day for me if I'm having fun playing.
According to the Unicycling Society of America 10 Skill Levels of Unicycling I can say level 1 is in the bag and now I can start to practice some of the level 2 skills.
mount unicycle unassisted
ride 50 meters
dismount gracefully with unicycle in front
mount with left foot
mount with right foot
ride 10 meters between two parallel lines 30 cm apart
ride a figure eight with circle diameters smaller than 3 meters
ride down a 15 cm vertical drop
make a 90 degree turn to the left inside a 1 meter circle
make a 90 degree turn to the right inside a 1 meter circle
I was told by some that I might have to participate in a triathlon with some handicap by using my unicycle instead of my Quintana Roo Kilo. Now doesn't that sound like fun?
