I thought it was a rest day… But I was totally mistaken… Next rest day is in 19 days. YAY!
Today, ran 5k (35 minutes) - kept cramping up and had to stop several times… But time doesn’t matter… I went out there and I did it, even if I was sore and tired.
Then, did 50 pushups X 2 for a total of 100. Wudup pushups!? (Wudup)
Now, shower… Then relaxing to a movie with Kelly. With chocolate milk and lots of water.
So while I was running, I thought of that SOS thing that’s going on… Instead of “Summer Of Scale”… I think I will call it “Season Of Showers”… Cause for a solid week now, I’ve been showering 2-3 times a day!
For my American friends, that’s 62 miles. We started the day debated whether we should keep it short, and it was only when we were half-way there that Karl admitted defeat and gave me the finger. (typical of Karl when he’s not right)
It was amazing - I realized that I progressed a lot in no time. It’s all coming back, and it feels good. Hills I was struggling before were easy-mode. I didn’t even use my climbing gears for the ride, which was awesome (other than one longer hill…. I was breathing heavily once I reached the top then smirked)
We had head wind the entire time. It was weird cause we thought that on the way back it would play in our favor but I guess that eating a sub makes mother nature change her mind. We were riding and talking, going from 30-40km/h (18-24 mph) which the occasional pace drop when the roads were bad.
I want to do this again, soon… Longer distance even… It was great.
And now I’m pooped. It was a busy weekend and I need to sit in the couch, relax and fall asleep early.
60 minutes of spinning
30 minutes of running
Upper body workout
Getting ready for Sunday’s 100k bike ride!
That is all!
Today was hot and sloppy… Ran 6k - you know the training runs that were not meant to be successful? Well yeah, today was one of those.
Once Karl and I were done running, we went and played Tennis! It was hilarious since I didn’t play in 11-12 years… But it was awesome, definitely will do that again!
It all ended with some subway. Gotta love life!
