Today is one of those days where a triple workout is not as bad as it sounds. I got up semi-early and did my 3 miler while the day was still “cool” The deer park forest preserve is always the best place for this as far as i’m concerned. It’s a 3 mile loop, what more can you ask?
I ran in shoes today instead of my vibrams and I think i’m slowly adjusting, although tomorrow i think i’m switching back to Vibrams for my 4 miles. I learned how to “run from my core” today. I know it sounds weird but I’m learning new things about my body every day and running from the core is kind of hard. its slows me down and it hurts a bit on the left side (the side where I tore my oblique) but I think this is a skill i need to learn that will make it better in the long run.
My motoactv gps doesn’t like me much right now. I wore it during the warrior dash and it got caked in mud and a little wet. This was fine until Sunday morning when i rinsed it off and completely killed it :(. Being a technology guy, I know that electronics CAN actually get wet, you just need to totally dry them before they will work again. I stuck it in the air conditioner vent all day Sunday and it powered up nicely in Monday but it’s still kind of acting funny. I think it will eventually make a recovery but for now I’m sad.
Asylum relief is perfect after a nice run! 30 minutes of stretching and relaxing the joints. it’s almost not worth considering a workout….almost. Creepy Shaun-T elmo comes out during this routine as he expresses and interest in coming to my house and pushing down on my back to..”make my body feel good.” He says this phrase several times in the workout and it never gets less creepy…even in elmo voice.
He wants to make your body feel good.
Tonight is Turbo class. Last week was an excellent class and i expect it to get even better today. The routine for Round 50 is working now and my only problem is by the finale, i’m kind of tired for all the other workouts i’ve done during the day. I don’t have extreme stamina yet…but i’m working on it. That’s what this is really about, the journey to Shaun T’s body. (that sounds kind of creepy as well).
Anyway, I’m enjoying a Chocolate, Banana, Coco-Nut milk Shakeology! Don’t believe me? Here have a look!
Yes, that is a raptor and yes, it wants my shakeology
all in the mixer
Yes that is a lion in the distance and it also wants my shakeology.
my house is a zoo sometimes…no lion, this is my Chocolate, CoCo-nut milk, banana shakeololgy!
Mmmm, You know you wanna try it!
Have a great day! Beach Body summit is in 2 days!
