I can’t believe how far I have come in only a week. Looking back at my posts – I see that on 4/4, I hit my first wall. Today I feel like I climbed that wall – and many others.
Today was my long bike day. 90 minutes on the bike. Last week, when I did my 90 minutes, I was pretty sore and tired at the end of it.
Today, I used the spin bike. I turned on some good tunes, and was in the dark at my local gym. I set the resistance fairly high, and was really working up a good sweat. Next thing I know, 30 minutes have gone by! What a great feeling. When time flies like that.
Another 30 minutes in, I ate my power bar. I have been trying to eat something while biking or running. I am doing this to try and get my stomach used to me eating while working out.
I finished the 90 minutes – jumped off the bike and went to the treadmill. I ran 1 mile in 9 minutes 51 seconds. I could have gone further – but since a “brick” was not in the training plan today, and I just finished 90 minutes on the bike, I didn’t want to push it to hard.
If you are really feeling sore after your workouts, keep it up. It will all pay off, and I am confident you will hit a new level and feel great after one of your tough workouts. This week alone, I ran longer than I ever have, and I felt great after the bike.
I can’t wait for the next level!
