WOW, I have all my old energy back finally!!! I don't know what kind of bug I had but it was nasty. I never used to get sick & since I've gone vegan, I've had two pretty bad episodes, is there a particular nutrient I may be missing?
Anyhow, Last night I went to the track & ran a tempo workout. 1 mile warmup, then 3 at 9:12-9:14 pace, and another mile cooldown. This morning I actually woke up early to go to the gym. I swam for 20 minutes mostly in a cycle of doing 4 lengths fast and with good form, then taking a minute break. Then it was back, shoulders, abs, and triceps.
On the way back from the gym I stopped at this convience store that recently changed hands because my husband said they had a vegitarian sandwich & he said he thought I would like some of the other things they carried- I was in heaven!!! Tofu, Soymilk, Clif lara & luna bars, huge selection of teas, fresh looking fruit salads, lots of good stuff!!! I just walked around looking at everything for a while.
I'm glad you're feeling better, Lisa.
Good for you doing the tempo workout on your own accord. So far I have mostly sucked at doing that stuff voluntarily. That's why I'm going out to the running group when I can... it forces me to do speed work.
That's awesome that a convenience store carries that stuff!! It reminds me of how I felt when I went to Sticky Fingers when I was in DC. It was amazing looking around and knowing that every single thing I saw was vegan. I don't think they even had mushrooms there either, which made it pure heaven.
