The WeatherNow I know when you need something to make idle conversation, you go for weather, but let's be honest with ourselves - Is it mid-winter or is it mid-spring?! Mother Nature has been a bit indecisive this winter season after having had a snow storm on Halloween, leaving us completely green through Christmas, and then lately we've been in the 40's if not 50's here in CT. I went for a run yesterday without my windbreaker (just a long sleeve tech) and I could have easily gone with the sleeveless.
I've loved the weather simply because it makes training much easier. However, I also fear what this is going to mean for spring and summer. Is the current weather just delaying winter? Are we going to have snow in May, or June?!
Training ScheduleI know I said I was going to have it finished, but... well... it's not. I thought I had it all worked out, but then I realized that I can't do my long bike ride on Friday of Week 1 because I have Sunday off specifically to go to the LBS ride which is the long ride. So that means my long run has to be Friday instead of Sunday and that blows my "no more than two run days in a row" rule out of the water. Ugh!
You have no idea what all that means, but in summary, this training schedule thing is tough!! More to come on this front next week.
The Monster is Moving Back In
On break yesterday, I ate my typical lunch. It usually holds me over for awhile and then I'll have a snack again around 8pm and then munch when I get out at 10pm. However, lunch only held me over for about 30 min. It seems the monster that lives in my stomach is starting to move back in. Since this morning was a harder workout (a 30 speed bike ride and a 2 mile run), I packed a few extra sandwiches today in hopes of satiating the hunger when necessary.
So far I've been holding steady on weight, but I may very well starting seeing that drop a bit. I do love eating though! =D
1. How has the weather been where you are?
2. Do you have a set training schedule? Did you write it yourself or use a pre-designed program?
3. Do you notice a change in appetite during training?
Swim fast. Bike smart. Run hard.
