This is me riding at the IHRSA trade show in San Diego. Me and a few other female triathletes volunteered to ride for however long we want to demonstrate heart rate monitor clothing. The bra i'm wearing has a small transmitter connected to it--rather than wearing the uncomfortable strap most heart rate monitors wear! I am stoked to ride for 2 hours at a time for the next few days to earn $120.00! It is super fun, I love people watching and getting paid to ride my bike! One girl is riding for 5 hours continuously--that's kind of nuts to me--but if I was still in my master's program and had the time and needed the dough, I'd probably do that too! The company I volunteered for has men's clothing too--but i'm not sure I could get Dave to wear a sports bra with a long piece of fabric for the "men's" style, it's like a sports bra with a long attachment, kinda weird, but the women's products rock!
Other training notes:
Sunday: 3 hour ride (52 miles)
Monday: 90 minute long run (11 miles)
Tuesday: 80 minute run with intervals (this killed me) =0
Wednesday: 60 minute hill run with master's swim
Thursday: 2 hour ride
Friday: 30 minute easy run w/short intervals, 2 hour ride
Oddly my legs are sore but not out of control!
Tomorrow i'm running a 5K and doing the Expo again for 2 hours.
My coach is working specifically with me on my heart rate monitor training. I tend to go "hard" in every work out which tends to burn me out. So, in order to prevent burn out and for my coach to know what my "hard/easy" levels are, we're doing heart rate monitor testing to figure out the levels so she can tell me what levels to keep the rate at during workouts so I can appropriately slow down/speed up etc.
I'm really excited about figuring out my levels to help prevent me from burn out...I need to keep things interesting.
I have some other pictures to upload, but i'm at work, so stay tuned I know i've been slacking...but people seem to like pictures and they're so hard to get because i'm usually training alone...so i'll try to be better about that!
