Ironman Training Day 2
To see the beginning of my Ironman Journey, be sure to checkout my first post of this series: Ironman Training Starts TODAY!
Day 2 of training included:
5:30am: 1 hour on bike trainer. “Spinervals 27.0 – Threshold Test & Suffer Fest” DVD. This was my first time on the trainer, and it made me sweat. A lot. I learned that my normal cadence is pretty slow, so using the trainer will definitely help me get more power on the bike!
– Pre-workout: Nothing
– During workout: 1 scoop Carbo-Pro (100 calories) mixed with 1 scoop Vitalite (40 calories)
– Post workout: 2/3 cup cereal with soy milk and ~1 TBSP flaxseeds
7:30pm: 1 hour of TCSD technique swim class at JCC with Jeremy. This was my first time back at swim in nearly 3 months! It was hard getting into the pool since it was about 48 degrees outside, but I felt pretty warm once I started swimming. My only issue was occasional calf cramping. I struggled with this before and need to figure out how to combat these cramps!
– Pre-workout: PB&J sandwich and apple
– During workout: Nothing
– After workout: Pasta with vegetarian sausage and marinara sauce
Now it’s time for bed…definitely too late since my next workout (a 6 mile run) begins at 5:45am tomorrow. Good night! Please let me know if you have any tips on how to prevent cramping while swimming!
