We were slow getting up this morning, but we both agreed at breakfast we were so glad we went ahead to the gym early – so much done before 8am! We ended up biking there in the dark. It was 44* and I was HOT when we got there. 44 is warm compared to the teens we’d be riding in. I did 30 hard minutes on the Stepmill and we were on our way home. I skipped any lifting because my shoulder muscles are very sore – I think from locust pose from yesterday’s Yoga For Runners?? (Actually, I am getting a shoulder massage as I type from the husband!)
Since we were short on time, I made today a cereal day. But I used yogurt as my base.
- ~1 cup TJ’s Euro plain
- ~1/2 cup each Quaker Oatmeal Squares + Kashi GoLean
- ~2 tbsp wheatberries
- ~1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/2 large banana
- Drizzle maple syrup
- Spoonful Barney Butter
My only complaint was that it wasn’t warm!
I had green tea to avoid the double French press rush.
I’m off to Biochem. We’ve got a quiz on the 20 amino acids, their abbreviations and structures. I was amazed at how fast I learned them last night with flashcards and some word tricks – like the Tyrosine structure looks kind of like a brontosaurus and sounds like Tyrannosaurus Rex!
See ya for lunch.
