Fitness Center Triathlon

Last night I flew from Boston to Stuttgart via Amsterdam, arriving at 9:15AM.  I got maybe 3 hours of fitful sleep on the plane.

I had a meeting from 11-12 and the lunch with the customer.  Then we drove back to Munich, well I rode and Martin drove.  I fell asleep in the car for about an hour of the trip.  Honestly, it was better sleep than what I got on the plane.

Back in Munich, I hung out at our office for an hour or so and caught up on emails.  Then I walked to my hotel, which has a small but serviceable fitness center.  I put on my workout clothes and headed down.

The plan was to do 60 to 80 minutes of low intensity aerobic work.  And that’s what I did.

  • 20′ treadmill death march: 15% grade, 3.2 mph
  • 30′ elliptical trainer, random profile avg level 16/25
  • 30′ stationary bike, hill profile, avg level 15
  • HR limit: 150

I was happy with the nice low HR, and especially that my HR was dropping fast with lower loads.  Not exactly what I want to be doing 12 days before the HOCR, but you do what you need to do.

Tomorrow:  Morning workout, then meetings all day.  Probably something a bit more challenging and shorter than this.   Maybe treadmill intervals.
