I let myself awaken naturally this morning – but I still set an alarm just so I wouldn’t sleep the day away. I woke up naturally around 6:55am and the alarm went off at 7. Perfect!!
The plan was to go to the gym first thing, but we took a while to get going. I decided my stomach was starting to growl so I had a little snack before we left: Optimum Slim in a little soy milk.
We pedaled away to the gym on our bikes (it’s 2.5 miles there and takes about 15-20 minutes, depending on the day). Once there I was lucky to find an elliptical next to a sunny window and spent 30 minutes reading Health. Then we reconviened for some lifting: cables (biceps, triceps), alternating pullups + pushups and finally a little shoulders with free weights. Then we biked home.
Since many of you have been inquiring about my stats, here’s today’s workout. I’ll try to get in a run stat soon too.
Time: 1:29 (this includes the biking as transportation)
Time in zone (I think that means over 120 bpm for me?): 50:57
Max HR: 157 (probably sometime on the ET)
Avg HR: 120 (lifting and biking brings it down)
Calories burned: 501
Once home and showered, it was 10:30! Matt, Nate, Kate, Justin, Diana and Dan are all going to a brewery today. It’s painful to miss out, but I have to get work done because my parents are coming next weekend and I don’t think driving 2 hours to drink beer for 2 hours would be very conducive to studying. Although I will miss my friends! It’s cool though, because we’re all meeting tonight for dessert and drinks at a new place.
SO, point of the story is that Matt had to rush to leave and gobbled down his oatmeal leaving the romantic set up I put out just for me to enjoy:
But the oats made excellent company
- 1/3 cup oats, milk, water, half banana, pinch salt, splash vanilla
- 1/4 crumbled Banana Almond Great Harvest Muffin
- Sprinkle flax
- Spoonful Maranatha Almond Butter
Plus tea! English breakfast with milk.
I’ve got my laptop out here and am planning to work at this table all day long. Not sure what to do about lunch since we’re still out of groceries. I’ll be replenishing tomorrow!
