Today was a designed Active Recovery day…whoops! I had taken 10 days off of the bike in order to let my body get used to being back on the P90X2 so I figured today would be a good day to get out there and go for a ride! Today was a good day. I was a little stiff from yesterday’s Plyocide workout (lots of jumping) so I started out with some foam rolling to get some relief. I had a feeling that I was going to get on the bike and want to push it. I have been wanting to try a new product (at least new to me) called Energy Bits. Energy Bits are 100% Organic Spirulina Algae and are supposed to be a great source of natural energy. I’ll be posting a product review in the coming days, so keep an eye out for it if you are interested in sports nutrition 🙂 Spoiler Alert: The Stuff is Pretty Cool!
So I was really happy with the ride. My back got a little fatigued and tight but I expected something on my body was going to complain. Doing X2 Recovery + Mobility this evening really helped loosen everything up. Looking forward to another Foundation Phase workout tomorrow! Core, Core, Core!
