I just did a 25 minute interval cardio training session on my apartment’s treadmill, which was basically a combination of jogging (5.6), sprinting (7.0), push-ups and tricep dips off the edge of the couch. I’m itching to join the gym but am waiting till this weekend. Maybe they’ll have some sort of memorial day sale on the initiation fee? That would be saaaweeet.
It felt good to run on the treadmill again and surprisingly, my legs weren’t sore in the least bit. Actually they felt really strong and great. I was itching to do something active after three days of rest and it felt really awesome to break a sweat. Riding a Century just a few days ago seems like a very strange and awkward dream. The only proof that I have that I actually did it is a bruise the size of a dinosaur egg on my right calf. Dinosaurs have eggs. Don’t question me.
Please note the Pringle in my hand below.
We had a brilliant love affair around mile 65.
Moving on. I need to check out the local high school’s track next time for a safe place to run outside. Since I’m new to this area I’m not very familiar with the roads and my main priority is being safe when I run. High school tracks provide a great, safe place!
After my workout today I made a big smoothie.
I used 1 scoop Amazing Meal, 1 tsp maca (now in my Open Sky shop!), 1 frozen banana, the rest of the frozen cherries (~1/3 cup?), a few frozen strawberries, 1 cup almond milk and 1 tbsp almond butter.
And now, the time has come.
