Somehow or another, yesterday I ended up doing a tri (well sort of) on accident :) It was great to stuff in a lot of workouts last night, but my nutrition was a total failure!
I will start off saying that I ate lunch yesterday at 12:15. I had brought in left overs from Tues dinner which was spicy sausage with rice and green, yellow, and red peppers. It was yummy and I also had a peach. I had no snacks left at my desk so therefor when I left my office at 3:50 something I hadn't ate anything for almost 4 hours.
I walked home and proceed to
stuff my face get some snacks before Jason got home. I had some humus with crackers, a glass of chocolate milk, a string cheese, and fruit snacks! Once Jason got home about a half hour later I changed into my cycling clothes and we headed down to Haines point for 20 miles of riding. The ride down to Haines is always super annoying with lots of stop and go through the city, but once there it felt good to be on my bike. I was actually having fun (something that I have not had while I'm riding in awhile!). There was some nasty head wind on the one side which made for a challenging ride, but other side the wind pushed you along and going 22mph was easy :) I tried to concentrate on how much water I was drinking and drank one water bottle on the ride, but didn't eat any of the shot blocks I had brought with me. It took us about an hour and 15 minutes to ride the 20 miles.
Once back home, I changed into my running shoes, took a big sip of Gatorade and out the door I went for a brick run. The second I hit the ground running my stomach started to turn. My legs, oh my legs felt fine, but not my stomach! The first mile seemed to go on forever and I wanted some water so badly. For some reason or another I didn't bring my water bottle with me and had nothing to drink while I was running which was a big mistake. By mile 2, I wanted to stop and walk, but kept telling myself this is how I might feel during a race and during a race I would be pissed at myself if I walked, so I kept running. My stomach issues continued on mile three and I had a couple throw up preps...gross. I have never been so happy when my watch beeped at mile 3 and I was finished. I managed to hold a decent pace despite my stomach issues and finished in 26 minutes. This was such a hard run for me!
