I started off on the crosstrainer for about 10 min. and did 5 min. of gentle stretching.
My work out went pretty easy. I did 9 miles on the elliptical bike and kept my heart rate low at 130.
I started with the bike so I wouldn't have to deal with the wetness factor in the gym.
I want to follow the program but im going to have to be a quick transitioner.
I need to learn how to economize my time properly so I understand the need to do it in the order given on the sheet.
I think as long as I somehow incorporate the transition factor and not get stressed about it on race day then I will be fine.
I have some fine tuning to do with the way I am organizing things...just a tad. But I'm always looking for ways to improve, thats the name of the game to me.
My swimming session was relaxing. I usually swim for an hour and a half. It was different going in there knowing that I could only do 24 min. But I am going to follow the 10% increase guidelines and ease into it.
Mental note: I need to buy a lap counter. I must get A.D.D in the water. I simple cannot keep count without one.
Until then I cant say the distance I swim. Arg.
It was a lovely swim. The sun was shining in the pool in the lane I was in. I was relaxing.
Oh, yeah. I stayed up too late so I got a late start into the gym. But it work out in any case.
I am looking forward to tomorrow. After my scheduled session for tomorrow I'm going to follow it up with a light strength training routine to work out my legs and also do some calisthenics.
I will put in the details tomorrow..
I need to get to bed earlier if I want to be like rocky at 4am.
Things I need to work on: Getting to bed by 8pm so I can get adequate rest for my training day.
Tomorrow will be a cake run....Run - 24 min. No big deal.
