Challenge day 3

Did pretty well with the challenge today. I had a few honey roasted peanuts that weren’t planned, but still doing well on calories.

Was going to swim at the Y today, but the pool was closed for emergency cleaning. I guess the chlorine was too high. Bleached hair, anyone? So I decided to do a brick instead (which is 2 triathlon events).

I rode the bike for 45 minutes, then jogged for 2 miles. I have to say that is tough on the legs! My thighs weren’t liking me very much. It was a hard start on the jog, then it got a lot better, but towards the end of mile 2, they were pretty tired. Of course, I will be fueling after the bike ride before the run on event day, so that might make a difference. I am going to start doing that during training in the next couple of weeks to see what it feels like (Yay, more food!).

I can’t believe it is only 6 weeks away!

    Nice job on your brick! Pedaling at a high cadence for awhile before the run is supposed to be helpful in getting over the “jelly legs” feeling faster. I’m really bad about remembering to do it though, it’s something I’ve been working on.

    great work! I am going to have to start doing that soon. My first tri is the day before yours. Keep it up!

    Ah!! That means my triathlon is 5 weeks away!!

    Great job on the brick today! I always thought it was pretty cruel to put the running as the last leg of the race. To me, that’s the most energy draining sport.

    Susan – I agree, the run is the most grueling, and especially after biking! My quads were protesting LOL

    I know I tell you this all the time, but you’re my bike riding guru. I bow in your presence 🙂 I’m also running vicariously through you since my knees say no. You rock, Lori. No doubt.
