Despite the fact that the AC at my house is a bit on the fritz, the temperature wasn’t too bad though, so I did my Monday P90X2 Chest + Back + Balance. After that, I jumped on my bike and rode a quick 7 miles. If that wasn’t enough, I decided to go to the Gym and get in a quick 1000 meter swim as well. The workout was a mini-triathlon of sorts. High energy and quick output tempo. I am excited to get back into this type of training! Only 1 month until my triathlon comeback so I need to make everyday count!
Today I had Plyocide which, if you have been following, is all about legs, jumping, and cardio. Crazy get your heart pounding type of a workout. I had to run to a meeting to discuss my high school graduating class 20th reunion meeting. Let me tell you, trying to take a shower directly after doing Plyocide is an exercise in futility. Really no point, because I can guarantee you, without a proper cool down, you are going to keep sweating for at least 25 minutes….no joke! So I got the meeting at Chuy’s and was starving, so I ordered and ate a tri-tip salad. The salad was pretty good! Either that or I was just hungry. At least the tri-tip was good. The meeting got out around 6:30 and I said to my friends, “looks there is still enough sunlight out to get a ride in. So I raced home and geared up for a quick ride! Ended up pounding out 10 miles at what I thought felt like a good click. Then I got home and hit my pool for a nice cool down. That sure felt good on such a warm day!
A new site that my friend Jed turned me on to is www.strava.com . This is a cool site where I have started to track my rides and eventually I might track my runs as well. Take a look. Its free and easy to use!
Tomorrow is my Recovery + Mobility Day so I’ll probably be doing Yoga early and maybe a slow swim in the afternoon. Gotta stay active but let some of the muscles rest. Kind of beat them up the last 2 days!
