[this is a note I just sent to Coach Helen, cc’ing, of course, Head Coach Dave. With respect to what I just blogged about – the fact Coach Dave said I had to have “stiffer shoes.”]
Dear Coach Helen:
As you know I want to be sure I do well on the Ironman, and I was concerned today during the bike. You know I’m already afraid of clipless pedals, but then I was afraid I had the wrong bendy shoes and didn’t want to let Coach Dave down. He really cares a lot about the team and wants the best for us.
Do you think these shoes would work better? I know they are a lot less flexible and I am just not sure. You are the expert.
