Two More Days Down

I missed reporting on yesterday because it was a rather busy day personally. I came home from Soccer Practice Tuesday night on my spare tire, so the first order of business was getting the flat tire fixed Wednesday Morning. As routine, I do my cycling workouts on my trainer at home instead of using the stationary bikes at the gym. I do this because the stationary bikes are just not designed for cyclists. Wednesday morning I used the Carmichael Training Systems (CTS) training video called relentless attack, It consists of 2 sets of intervals followed by a high intensity steady state. The workout lasts just over an hour. When I finished, I entered the data captured by my Garmin Edge 305 into my training tracking programs then started to head upstairs to shower and get ready to go to the tire store. This is when a sudden wave of nausea hit me. I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it upstairs without throwing up. I quickly realized that I actually needed food and grabbed a PowerBar. The PowerBar did the trick and I was able to continue to function and get myself ready for the tire store and work.

This morning was a swim workout. Swimming is definitely my weakest of the 3 triathlon disciplines and the one I need to work on the most. I swam 1600 meters this morning in about 40 minutes. Definitely won’t be competitive with anyone at that speed. I don’t know how much I can improve in the 6 weeks prior to the triathlon, but it is fun to try.
