And it’s pretty nice out here in Vancouver too. Not that I’ve been outside much…YET.
TRI training update;)
I woke up this morning, walked to Tim’s to get a coffee, then pretty much went straight to the stationary bike. On my schedule today was a 90 min bike, at an easy pace- keeping my rpm’s around 90-100…
I had planned to get outside for my bike today, but I have to do some maintenance on my bike before I take her on the road and I haven’t had time yet. So another long ride on the stand still bike. Since I’ve been training, I notice that time is going by quicker during workouts. I biked for an hour and 30 min and it definitely didn’t seem like that long.
I am a water fiend though. I drank this much water at only 32 minutes into my ride!
When I was done, I got back upstairs and made a shake asap.
What kind of shake you ask?
Sound gross? Well it tastes soooo refreshing! YUMMY. It is just like my wake and shake, except with some berries and oj for added sweetness.
After that I had a couple bowls of goldfish. Not vegan and full of preservatives, but they taste so good. Here fishy, fishy, fishy…
Mike and I are letting our Costco membership go after the end of the month, so we stocked up on some frozen berries, goldfish, (chicken, eggs, milk- for Mike), paper towel, walnuts, pickles, my favorite lotion Nutraderm, stuff like that….
Sorry, got off topic…back to training:)
I missed my club bike ride on Thursday to go to the Canucks game. I felt bad for missing it and also was eager to make up for it….until my club mate Klaus (who is training for an IRONMAN!) informed me of some tips written by IRONMAN Champion Chris McCormack. Chris says:
- Recovery is king! Always err on the side of recovery in your training program. Recovery takes many forms, and body maintenance (massage, Yoga etc) sleep and rest are imperative to the game and the mix.
-Guilt attached to any missed session is more harmful than missing the session itself. Guilt is what limits most people in our sport. If you miss a session for any reason, put it behind you and move forward. Don’t play catch up and don’t worry about it. Its done, move on!
Sound advice! I will put that behind me and move on….. Tomorrow I have a 60 minute run with the club and then a swim workout. THEN…the SPA with my girlfriends! Perfect way to end the week!
Hope you are having a great day and enjoying the weekend.
Talk sooooooooooooooooooooooooooon WOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO
