Ahh, JenLove - congratulations! here's to a very sticky baby and a happy, healthy pregnancy.

i think i'm really going to put running on the back burner for a little while. it bothers my back more than cycling so i think i'll stick to the bike during this time.

short bike ride planned for this afternoon and some hanging around the house. Rhubarb cake in the oven, hoping we'll either have folks over this afternoon or get invited to some friends as dh will not eat rhubarb. not that i'm afraid to eat it all myself - cause i totally will.

happy marathon training DrJen and Megs. It's fun, even those 20 milers. You guys are going to do great!

Anyone read Lance Armstrong's "It's not about the bike?" It's what I'm reading now and it's surprisingly good.

Back from my first brick workout of the year...wow. Not feeling ready for triathlons right now, that's for sure! : I'm pretty proud of my bike ride...I did just over 30 miles in just over 2 hours. It's an absolutely bee-yoo-tee-ful day to be outside today and the trail was pretty crowded, but it was nice to see so many people out being active! The first 15 miles were mostly downhill, and I felt great, but then I had to turn around and come back uphill. My knee started hurting and I hit the wall a little bit, but by the time I got to mile 26-ish, I had my second wind and was able to push through the knee pain a little bit. Cruised into the driveway, changed shoes, grabbed the dog, and headed out for a short 2.25 mile run. I forgot how painful it is trying to get your legs going off the bike. Super tough! It didn't feel good, but I'm pretty happy with my effort, 9:18 pace for the run. Now at least I feel slightly more prepared for my sprint tri next weekend, although I'm feeling more intimidated than ever about the Olympic tri next month! Jaygee~What kind of training program are you using for your oly? I have GOT to get something more formal going or I'm going to be SO screwed...

I attempted to get in and out of my bike shoes while on the bike today (helps speed up your transition and also that way you don't have to run in your bike shoes while in transition)...yeah, that didn't work so well. Actually, I had little to no problem getting OUT of the them, just can't get IN to them. Oh well, I've got one more bike ride this week and maybe I can figure it out then.

Off to shower followed by a little shopping and a pedicure! Yay! I discovered today that my tri shorts are just big enough that I could really stand to get a smaller pair, so I think I'm going to go check that out...luckily my tri top seems to be ok. I don't really care if the top is a little big, as long as the built-in bra still supports the girls, and that seems to be fine!

well, i just threw on my dingo t, my runnin shoes and hit the treadmill...for a whopping 2 miles! the site of my incision was a bit achey, so i did some run, some walk. regardless, it felt good to move the legs, that's for sure. i realized i hadn't put my running shoes on since the day of the half.

i may have missed some race list updates that were announced in the may thread, so just post a reminder if i did.

jenlove - i deleted the 70 mile bike ride one first by accident, should i repost that one?

OK, this brings up an interesting mental image... can you elaborate? Do you pre-clip your shoes to the pedals and then get your foot in while riding? But then how do you pedal and keep from falling over? Hrmm...

Subbing. DD and I took the bike trailer to a museum today. It's been a while since I've done that, and I start commuting by bike to my night class this week so I wanted to test myself over the distance. (my dingo tee came along for the ride) Right now I cannot imagine running after biking, though I am thoroughly convinced by the sore parts in my quads that they use muscles differently...

I'm feeling like a Lesser Dingo because I haven't run in a week, but I'm hoping to squeeze something in after dh gets home tonight. I almost always run S/S but dh was out of town, so I didn't.

Poppy, I'm doing a 5K June 19th.
post #15 of 752
I have a RR, my 1st run in 2 weeks since the 5K with the Atl Dingos. I ran 1 mile, on teh treadmill at the gym. I ran it 60 minutes into my workout, but I good song came on my ipod, I got a burst of energy, adn I decided to run. I ran it in 13 min. I was trying to keep my HR in teh 150's. I did get into teh 160's a little, but I did not hit 170 (which is when I experience the bonking). I felt great running. No knee pain at all during or after, adn I felt very strong. Though I wish I had my Enell on, b/c I think I was bouncy .

I have a question about TM running. Do you set an incline? I heard a trainer tell me once to set the TM at a 2.5% incline, b/c that mimicks running outside. Opinions???

That's a trick I never personally went for. BIL is like king of the transition. He practices them all the time at home, etc. He does always have the fastest transition time... DH always beats him on the bike and the run though. Gotta love sibling rivalry!

Hmmm... I always put mine at 1% unless I am doing climbing repeats. 2.5% seems high.


rr: I managed to get 4 miles in on the treadmill while dc were tearing up the house and yard. DH will be home tonight so I can do my 60 minutes on the road tomorrow.

Subbing.

I'm thinking about using my iPod again for my mid-week runs. Am I insane to go back to using music after weaning myself off of it?
post #18 of 752
2.5% incline is what I need to keep my ankles from hurting.
post #19 of 752
tjsmama ~ This is the training plan I'm following. They also have a 10 week beginner one here. As for getting into/out of bike shoes while clipped in, I have NO idea how I'd get in. Seriously, I need both hands and to be sitting on the ground to get into those things. I could probably get out though....

Crazy day today including 4 baby bunnies, dead car battery, no naps for the girls, and lots of other nuttiness. I'm ready for tomorrow.

found this interesting "the 1% incline treadmill myth" & "part 2" Both links take you to the home page, so go under general training and you'll see them near the end of the list.
