Eating on the Swim / Bike / Run

I slept late on Tuesday and skipped the group ride. My legs were tired from the trail run the night before. At lunch I went to the trace with Vic and Adam and we decided to run intervals. 10 x ¼ miles with 90 rest sounded good. As always, they started out hard, but manageable and then just got harder. I was able to finish all of the intervals in the high-high 120’s. In the spring I was running these in the low 120’s but I was not as consistent. It was a good effort. My rump was a little sore from the bike tip-over the night before.

On Saturday’s epic training day I looked at the amount of calories that I consumed:

PRE-SWIM
400 CALS - 2 POP TART S
PRE-BIKE
400 CALS – 2 POP TARTS
BIKE
400 CALS – 2 POP TARTS
500 CALS – 2 PEACAN LOGS (MINI)
400 CALS – 2 SPORTS DRINKS
200 CALS – 2 GELS
PRE-RUN
400 CALS – 2 POP TARTS
500 CALS – 2 PEANUT BUTTER CRACKER PACKAGES
100 CALS – ½ SPORTS DRINK
RUN
200 CALS – GELS
POST RUN
100 CALS – ½ SPORTS DRINK
100 CALS – LIGHT BEER


TOTAL = 3700 calories

  1. You got a thing for pop tarts, eh? Whatever gets you through on a long, hard day, stick with it. I like a Coke in the middle of my rides, I got nothing on a pop tart!
