Will this work? I have no idea. What are you gonna do different? Anything?
Today was a crazy busy day, but I got my workouts done. I didn't make it to the big gym as planned, but I did get it done in my LR gym.
Month 1 Week 3 Day 2 from BeginnerTriathlete.com (1 hour)
Lift: Back, Shoulders, Abs. 2 sets of 10-12 reps for 2 exercises each body part.
Bike: 30-35 minutes stationary bike. Check HR often on this workout. Do a continuous hill workout. Every 2 minutes, add a gear or two (increase resistance). Keep climbing until you have reached halfway through the ride/workout. At the halfway point, start taking a gear or two OFF every 2 minutes. Come down as slowly as you went up. 5 minute cool down.
Stretch: 10-15 minutes of FULL BODY stretching.
Bike Workout Summary
I still haven't replaced the batteries on my bike computer - on my to do list now! Anyway, I did 35 minutes including the cool down and increased the resistance up to the halfway point. It started getting pretty tough to keep a good cadence going. Then finally the halfway point on to the end of the workout was very nice - just like riding down hill the whole way.
Strength Training (Lift):
1) Lat Pulldowns 12 @ 50; 12 @ 110
2) Dumbbell (DB) lawnmower pulls 12 @ 5lbs x2
1) DB Shoulder Press 12 @ 15 x2
2) DB Side Raises 12 @ 3 x2
1) Ball Crunch 12 x2
2) Leg lifts 12 x2
Full Body 30 seconds per muscle.
After the workout, I ate dinner and then about 45 minutes later, we headed to the pool. I definitely like the group lesson! There were 3 of us and that meant that I was able to catch my breath while the other 2 swam. Then I'd go and once I was halfway, the next person would go and then finally the third. I had a nice 30-45 second break each time.
I felt much more confident this time. I had tried to practice the other day and it went horribly, but for some reason, this time it went pretty well.
Guess I have to just keep swimming...
I love this movie.
