A fitness center sprint Tri…3×15′

I landed in Korea about 9:30 last night and I was in bed by 11:30pm.  I didn’t sleep much on the flight over, maybe 2 hours between Boston and Tokyo and another hour or so between Tokyo and Seoul.

I got bored sitting around Narita, so I went for a walk.  I walked the whole terminal, it took about 40 minutes and it was a much better way to waste time than surfing the web.

So, from a training perspective:

Monday: 40 minute walk (with rollerboard suitcase dragging behind)

Tuesday:  I woke up at 6am.  My legs were sore from Sunday’s run, and I was feel jetlagged and tired.  But I suited up and headed down to the gym.  I was getting picked up at 8am, so I had a little bit less than an hour.

My plan:

  • 15 minutes, stationary bike, easy, rolling hills
  • 15 minutes, max incline treadmill, 15% grade, speed set to stay in UT1 zone
  • 15 minutes, elliptical, short intervals (1’15” on/1’15” off), around the top of the UT1 zone.
  • enough time to clean equipment between 15′ pieces.

4-25a

4-25b

Well that worked out just fine.  The bike was hard.  My thighs and legs were complaining loudly, but my HR was not going up.  I guess that’s from the run.

Tomorrow morning, I have more time.  I will probably do a 3 x 20′ and some strength training.

Then I head out to the airport for a 1:35 departure for home.
