Weigh in today: down 2 pounds from Monday. Still up 3 from last weigh in.
Yesterday I did a whole spin class, which was about 45 minuets of actual riding, then 2 miles on the treadmill. Spin was really good. I pushed myself harder than ever. My legs were already weak and shaky, and I wanted to see if I could do 2 miles after the class. When I do the triathlon I am going to have to swim first, then bike, then run! So I need to get use to doing those together.
As soon as I started running I wanted to quit. It was very hard to run after just pushing myself so hard on the bike. I walked and ran, finishing 2 miles in 29 minuets. That is good for me on the treadmill. I was running at 5.7 at times. It is so hard for me to run on the treadmill! I feel like all I think about is stopping, versus when I run at the track I focus on the goal.
I have been fighting a cold, and today it really defeated me. Horse cough, achy body, sore throat. Today I am going to rest and try to get better. I would love to run today, but with the cough, and I am out of my inhaler, I am not sure it would be a good idea.
I asked the Cycle instructor how long he thought it would take to do 10 miles on the bike outside, and he said 45 minuets to an hour! I thought it would take 30 minuets at the most. He said depending on the route, the wind, and how in shape you are. Uh-oh. I am feeling way in over my head now. Gotta keep pushing. I will do this, with the Lord's help.
