Training hard!

I have got a good solid 2 months of training in and I feel like I am getting some of my fitness back. The schedule is filled with lots of tough workouts that are really kicking my butt but I am trying to keep things consistent. I may not nail every workout but I am sure trying to.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of riding with a few friends out on the road in 38 degree wet conditions. I also got my first flat of the year and have come to realise that riding your bike on the trainer really reduces the lifespan of your tires. Smooth tires in wet conditions are always a little scary! So I shall make a trip to Brielle Cyclery to stock up on some new tire changing gear and tires! AHHHH!

Feeling a little tired after yesterday, and after a hard effort in the pool today, I have come to the gym to run on the treddie. What do you do when your stomach just does not cooperate though? I am taking a 20 minute break in the hopes that my poor choice of prerun food digests and I can focus on my run and not on stomach cramps and my ridiculous heart rate while running way too slow.

I shall go now to attempt this again in the hopes of treadmill running bliss.)no such thing!) Actually this will be good to simulate how I sometimes feel in a race and how I need to push through. So I need to toughen up and get it done! No more stalling for me!
