Happy Tuesday, friends! How was your day? I kicked things off this morning with a 75-minute indoor bike trainer ride.
At first glance, this setup looks like a usual ride, but I made an important change today: I wore an Under Armour top, which is normally reserved for chilly outdoor runs.
So why rock cold weather gear during an indoor spin?
One of my main concerns about the Nautica South Beach Triathlon (in t-minus 18 days!) includes the heat. Since I grew up in the tundra Central New York, freezing temperatures don’t bother me, but high humidity is a different story. Basically, aside from high school field-hockey practices (and the very end of a few long runs this past summer), I don’t have any experience working out in the heat, and I have no idea how my body will respond. Obviously, I can’t become totally used to warm temperatures during the upcoming weeks, but I do want to get a rough idea of how my body will respond—and how much I can push. This morning’s ride was a little toasty, and during tomorrow’s Full Throttle Endurance indoor cycling workout, I plan to wear more layers. And even though my normal spot isn’t next to a fan, I need to choose a seat that’s in the middle of the room that has zero chance of getting a breeze. Andrew also suggested spending some quality time in the sauna, so I’ll probably camp out there Thursday and Friday post-workout.
My appetite has been out of control the past few days, and this morning was no exception.
Post-biking and strength training coffee, water, and overnight oats.
I haven’t been posting pictures of my meals because I eat literally the exact same thing every day.
The usual suspects made appearances tonight.
Baked salmon seasoned with EVOO, cayenne pepper, garlic salt, lemon pepper, and a sprinkle of basil, plus some peas and roasted sweet potatoes.
Do you prefer warm or cold weather? Any tips for preparing for hot and humid races?
