My wife and I had our 3rd daughter last night. I am trying to figure out how to adjust my training. I have my Half Ironman coming up June 30th and my full at IM Louisville.
I am wrapping up the last week of the build phase and start specialty on Monday. I already dropped specialty from mid volume to low volume. I am not concerned about getting the hours in. I am normally up at 4:30am to get my run/bike in then I swim during my lunch break at work. The biggest change is going to be recovery time. I am not banking on getting my 7 - 8 hours anymore for the next month.
I am curious how i should adjust my workouts based on sleep changes. For example, if I have a 1 hour bike ride at 4:30am, but I have only slept 3 hours before I don’t want to kill my training by getting on the bike for a workout if I will be doing more harm then good.
