This is really fun


Recommended Posts

Maybe not so much. I got all ready to go and then just couldn't do it. Took Tuesday's rest day on Monday. 5 days straight, woulda liked to go 6, but it turned out it was a good decision because of scheduling stuff later in the afternoon.

 

Ate like a pig, felt way overfed.

coffee/soy

celery, tomato, ginger, hemp, h20 smoothie

more celery and tomato

400 cals garbonzo beans, salad greens

1.5 cup of granola, 3 pieces of chocolate covered banana, 2 ginger candies

It was a hot day... I'm pretty sure that taking the electolytes so early in the day helped stabilize me all day long.

 

I laughed so hard at this song in the weight room, for reasons I won't go into here

Friday:

I really wish the gym would do something about their temperature control issues. It was stupid hot. It was a pretty fun run though, especially when I almost killed myself trying to plug my earbuds into the tv thing while running at top speed.

 

No weights, had to get into the pool before a class started in there, plus my back was still a little sore. My legs started seriously cramping up during the last 5-10 mins of my swim, not sure what that was about, prob electrolytes. I felt completely wiped for the rest of the day.

 

Rode home not so fast for a change, spent as much time as i could on the flats going hands free.

Wednesday:

Biking was strong. I almost got sideswiped by a bus but remained unspooked. This summer, I might be learning courage. I was a little irritated, so i went home the super hilly way.

Running surprised me. I thought I would go faster, especially since i took a couple puffs of inhaler.

I swam fast... maybe cuz the water was so cold? I planned on going longer, but i rly had to get out and make cheesecake.

Happy that I could do a set of skullcrushers at 45#. It's more about courage than strength.
