|4th of July nails!|
I feel like my triathlon training is falling apart. It seems that getting in all the training is increasingly more difficult now. That is probably because I can't workout 6 days a week and my training sessions are all at least an hour long so it is very difficult to combine two sessions into one day because that makes for a minimum of a 2 hour workout. Besides that, it is hard for me to run for an hour and then go bike for an hour. It's one thing to run for 30 minutes then go bike for 30 minutes, it's a whole different ball game to do both for an hour. I think I need to get some GU or some Shot Blocks so that when I do longer training sessions I don't have an energy crash. There was one workout that I had to stop because I just hit a wall. (It was when I was trying to combine two workouts into one day and I just had to quit about 10 minutes into the second workout, I just didn't have any energy). I have also heard that you should try whatever energy boost you are going to be using before race day because you might find that certain kinds make you feel sick. This weekend will be a good time to try some out.
