Anyway, I figured Slowtwitch is bound to have real advice from real athletes! Here are my issues: Running... besides not getting too overheated, whats the deal with heart rate? I mean, really, is 140 the max I can go? I am only about 6 weeks into it, and a fellow girlfriend I was training with actually miscarried (at 6 weeks also) after a moderate 8 mile run.
I am so friggn tired its making me a VERY unpleaseant person... and its from having to pee every two hours. I am trying not to drink too much water before bedtime but I am up every two hours and its getting really old, really fast. Any advice on what I can do or when its going to end?
I have decided not to ride outside anymore and just stick to my trainer or spin class. Spin classes can get kind of intense as well, if not more then actually riding in a group. Same thing.. is 140 heart rate the stopping point?
Whats the deal with coffee?
I desperately need a guide or book or website thats geared for men. My husband is a very intelligent guy but a guy nonetheless and has relatively no knowledge of this stuff and gets a little heeby jeeby when trying to read about pregnancy its all terms like: "mucus" and "uterus". Plus he is very concerned with me doing any kind of workout besides swimming. (He is a serious triathlete too). Is there a "Dude's Guide to Your Triathlete Wife Being Pregnant" out there anywhere?
Same goes for any guides/info for my family (who are the opposite of athletes)... they are hassling me about working out and in reality (compared to my previous training for IM and several 1/2 IM's) what I am doing now is about 15-20% of what I would normally do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
