I failed Lion Rock yesterday and I’m hoping you all could help pinpoint why. I got halfway through the second set of intervals, hamstrings started cramping and I couldn’t turn the pedals. Overall I felt bad going into the workout.
Here are things that stood out to me:
School started this week, I had to move my workouts from early morning to late afternoon when I’m at my most tired.
It’s been hot this week, over 100, and my house has been sitting at 82.
I’ve been sleeping poorly for the last 2 weeks, averaging 5.5 to 6 restless hours.
Very stressed at work since I’m backing the main producer while she’s on vacation.
I’m trying to get my weight down, lost about 5 lbs this month.
Got a bike fit down a couple weeks ago whicH has caused pain in my hips.
I guess now that I think about it, it all rolls up together. But what should I do? Stick with the short power build program or go do a week of endurance before restarting?
When I started TR my kids were just starting summer break, I found it much more enjoyable doing my workouts around 7 am before the insanity started. School just started this week so I’ve had to do my workouts in the late afternoon.
I’m not sure if it’s the workouts (pierce and lion rock) or the time of day I’m working out now, but my legs are cramping and I just had my first failed workout. I’m super discouraged because I thought short power build would be more my speed.
Anyhow, I’m considering moving my workouts to 6am now in the hopes it will better suit my body.
