Okay I missed one damn day, and I hated it. I was TIRED!! I didn't know it. Do we ever?? I got home from work, and knew I had nothing. I relaxed. i.e. had a couple drinks. Lisa said I fell asleep before 7:00 p.m. I slept in til like 4:06 or something, and got out of bed at 4:16. Of course I had like 5 bloggers update, and no time to read them. I checked the Sox, saw they won, and decided I can still bike to work if I time trial it. VROOM!! Off I go. I punch in at 5:02, so I am on time. We have a 5 minute leeway. I know stupid stupid!! You know if you no call/ no show it is the same as punching in 6 minutes late. :) Sometimes companies get too smart. The smarter they get the dumber they get. Probably from getting too big.
I had so much stuff on my mind yesterday, but let me show you what makes me tick. Tuesday night I read a blog to slowwww things down. Oh man!! I am all over that. I slept for 9 hours!! :)
Yesterday I was biking home, and man the legs had nothing to be honest. I went outside and laid down for a bit. I checked my messages. I wanted to originally double like I did last Wed. A 20+ mile bike ride plus speed work. I get a message via Twitter of someone who plans to do some biking in Jupiter, PA or Saturn, PA I don't know somewhere. I think to myself, can I? Will these legs take me?? Oh yes!! I am done resting. Time to get on the bike. I knew my route. My 27 mile route I do not have time for. I go and do my close to 19 mile route, the halfway point is a hill. Not a huge one, but I huff and puff on the way up. Very steep. I make it home, and still have an hour to kill before speed work. Of course I realize shit!! I am fucking tired!! :) Excited though.
I remember I was gonna do upper body stuff again. So I do my push ups and pull ups. Now remember my standard workout is 4@15 push ups and 4@6 pull ups. I do 15,10,10 push ups. Those suckers are hard. No cheating either. Touch the chest, and arms lock on the way up. I was able to do 3@5 pull ups. I always wonder why the hell do I ever stop doing push ups. :) Those suckers are hard.
Then we do the track. It is marathon training time, so since we are at the track my warm up cool down is 4 miles. wu/cd was @ 8:37 pace. I sucked on the track, but my legs were not fresh. I ended up doing 6-800's. Times were definitely not descending.
I forget, but it was something like that. My legs just couldn't move. I feel good about the effort. I put in a hard day, and man I felt good about it. I love hard days, but have learned not every day can be hard. Some days it is good to just watch the puffy clouds roll by. Some days I am going to hit it though. The days where I watch the puffy clouds are great!! You know I love those days where I just go and go and go too!!
I have no idea what I'll do today, I want to do a ton, but my legs are absolutely toast!! :) I'll bike to work and back, and then we'll see. Maybe take the dogs on a recovery walk!! :)
Hope you all have a great and Awesome day!!! :)
Love You All!! :)
