Yesterday I got up early and did my FTP interval bike ride at 6am, and then right after work did my 35 minute steady state Z1 run at the gym, even though I was not feeling it when I left, I knew that I would feel better after doing the run. I always do. I have yet to feel worse after a workout. Has anyone?
Today I got up and did my 45 minute run at the gym before work. I am on my way to another 100% week. Now that I know that I can do it, I want to keep doing it. I have no real excuses this week to miss a workout, so my goal is to not miss a workout!
This weekend I plan on getting in my bike ride and run first thing in the morning before heading out to the airport. My flight leaves at nearly 4pm and I picked this as it allowed for me to still get in my bike. With the weather being cooler now in South Florida, and a gym on site, I will be able to get in my run on Sunday while Mike is at work. I have a triathlon bike and a pool and a treadmill / outside for running so I should be able to get in my workouts. The only thing is that I may not be able to get in the exact workouts as I will be riding outside, and with stoplights/traffic no guarantees on perfect execution - so I will make do!
I also realized that last year I was getting major pains in my tushy - my Piriformus muscle was really acting up and that sort of snowballed into the maor issues I had all season. I realized that it was because I was running on too large of an incline on the TM during the week and was not stretching the muscle out or giving it enough rest in between runs. I am really working on PF stretches and my over-all stretching this season to help avoid the same fate as in 2013.
Until next time,
