Triathlon Training, Week 1, Day 2

I’m adjusting things again! Day 2 is a rest day per the training plan, but I’m switching rest days around to fit the vacation schedule. I did follow the workout plan to the T, however.

Spencer took me to the SDFC and we found the spin bike room completely empty. No need for worries about embarrassing myself on the bike. Read this post for some laughs and to understand my fears.

I got my bike all adjusted, and heart rate & timer going on my Wahoo Fitness app without any difficulty. Time to ride!

10 min warm up
3 x 8min in Zone 4 and 2min in Zone 2
5 min cool down

I have no idea what the numbers mean or how they correlate to actually riding a bike, but here are some numbers:

45 minutes with average heart rate of 129 bpm and 601 calories over a simulated 14.7 miles. My power output was around 220 watts during my 8 minute reps in zone 4 (140-145 bpm) at 85-90 rpm cadence.

Good first official riding workout. I wonder if I’ll be able to walk tomorrow!?!
