Get Faster Week 2: Tuesday Night Bike Workout 2x15

Tuesday night I jumped on the bike as the kids went to bed and Amanda was on the couch sick. This is my fourth workout in two days. My legs were quite sore from running so I was not sure how things were going to go.

My workout was the following

WU: 10-15', then 3 x 1' (1') @ Zone4/Hard, to open up your legs. 
MS: 2 x 15' (4') @ 95-100%/Zone4/Hard.
CD: 5-10' @ 65-70%/Zone1/Easy

I popped in the movie, Perks of Being a Wallflower, and took off. The movie is great so far as well as the workout. The bike workout really loosened up my legs and took away any soreness that I had.

I had to hit my Zone 4 power of 210-221. I was able to do just that. My legs were tired, but in a good way. It felt good to get in another workout.

The hardest thing I have to deal right now is always being hungry. I forgot how during my training I always want to eat. After the bike workout I pigged out right before bed eating chips, peanut butter and jelly sandwich, grapefruit juice, water, crackers, and jelly beans. I then crashed hard and slept all night and missed out on Amanda puking her brains out all night.
