I was talking to Trimama the other night about which workouts seem the toughest. I'm realizing that I base toughness not on the actual rigorous nature of the workout, but on the inconvience of scheduling the working out. It's harder for me to get over to the YMCA and jump in the pool then to just go downstairs and get on my trainer, even though some of my trainer workouts are much harder then my pool laps. Just curious what training workouts you find to be the most difficult and why?

Let see what I'm up to this week.

Monday 2000 yard swim, 30 minute run, 20 minute weights/core
Tuesday 45 min. spin
Wednesday 1 1/2 hour spin
Thursday 3100 yard swim (gulp)
Friday- off (thank goodness)
Saturday- hour run, weights/core

Ironman video out soon?!

more !
less ?

I'm with you Tac. The hardest workouts for me are usually the one where there is a lot of prep time (driving, getting gear ready, ect) vs. the ones that I can do by stepping outside my door.

The hard workouts are anything done in the evening. At 0400 I'm ready to take over the world. At 1730, not so much.

The hardest workouts for me are any that involve getting up before the sun. That's just not natural man!!!

Right now they are all the hardest workouts - except for swimming. Even though I have to get up at 5:00 I know I'll be happy once I hit the water. It's still hard, though and I'm tired and sore all the time.

If I absolutely had to pick, though, I'd pick riding my bike in the trainer. Hate it.

Right now I'm hating anything outside. It's raining slurpee out there. It's windy, it's dark, it's cold, it's slippery, it's generally yuck. I love my trainer something fierce right now (especially for group spin with the team) and the pool and I have had an on going love affair for years now which we mostly conduct in the morning away from the prying eyes of Brian.

That's easy. Core strength. Period.

5 a.m. pool call, doable. 4:30 a.m. for 2 hours on the trainer, no biggie. 90 minute run after work, awesome, particularly if B-Boy can go in the jog stroller.

Lift weights and do strength training, ouch.
