The ride ended up being 120 miles with kJ burn of 4560! That represents more of a burn I’m expecting to burn during IM. I now know how I should feel coming off the bike! Very exciting time of training for me. There are some equations that you can use to calculate the burn you will have if you hold ‘X” amount of power
The Sunday run was out at McLeans Island. Not super long but still a good test. I have been basing all my runs off heart rate so far for this build. Lots of people have switched to pace, but I really like HR and more old school methods when it comes to the run. Pace is getting quicker each month at my zone I train at. Here are some pics of the run.
I love this straight.
15km of MTB trails just off to the left.
Little fueling with my secret formula and some Base Salt.
Yes, I roll in compression socks and my FAVORITE shoes, the K-Swiss Konejo II. I’m eagerly awaiting to try the new Blade-Max series though.
