But, I'm so close to my short term goal of getting into "One-derland" that I put on my shoes, grabbed my coat and headed out the door.
I did the full workout I had planned, just later than planned. Then on the way home I find out that one ingredient planned with dinner has mold on it. WHAT!?!? I just bought that. The temptation was to head straight to a drive-thru for some fast food. I was tired from my workout, it's late, I'm hungry AND I have to pee. Sheesh! But again, I reminded myself of my goals.
Eating this late is bad enough, I don't need to add bad-for-you food on top of that. So, I detoured to the grocery store, snagged what I needed and then headed home.
Dinner is in the oven as I type... SUCCESS!
Workout was good, just long - the longest yet. I think I watched half of MiB on the bike.
Here's the plan from BeginnerTriathlete.com
Month 1 Week 2 Day 3 - 1 hr 30 minutes
Lift: Shoulders, Back & Abs. 2 sets of 10-12 reps for 2 exercises each body part.
Bike: Longer ride 50-60 minutes. This is an endurance ride. Try to put the resistance higher for a minute here and there (no more than 4 times) and come out of the saddle. Working on leg power and relaxed upper body. 5 minute cool down.
Stretch: 15-20 minutes of FULL BODY stretching.
Here's what I did...
Bike Workout Summary:
Stationary upright bike on a random hill setting @ LEVEL 9 (moved up another level - by accident, then decided to stay there) for 60 minutes including a 5 minute cool down. I pushed the resistance up to the max at level 25, stood up as best I could on this particular bike and tried pedaling for about a minute at that level. That shot my HR up to around 126 each time. I basically had to drop the seat in order to stand up and pedal, but I couldn't completely stand up as if I were on a real bike. So I do something like this...
|If you don't drop the seat a bit, it comes back and bites you in the butt.|
397 Calories, 10.59 miles, climbed 4937 ft., averaged 5:40 min/mile and avg HR 106.
Strength Training (Lift):
1) Shoulder Press 12 @ 30 x2
2) Delts Machine 12 @ 20 x2
1) Free Motion Row 12 @ 50 x2
2) Back Extension 12 @ 100 x2
1) Crunch Machine 40/40
2) Total Ab Machine 50/50
Full Body 30 seconds per muscle group.
And that's it for Week 2! I'm hoping for good results on the scale this week, but even if I don't see anything, I know I've been training hard.
Have a spectacular weekend!!
