This morning was a battle of the wits between my inner eager athlete and inner coach. With shin splints still in the legs, I REALLY wanted to go run, but after the battle subsided and the dust settled, the coach stood victorious while a little piece of me inside died (I've surprisingly become a big fan of running). However, the decision was only finally made at a point in the day when it was too late to go to the gym before work. Ugh! But after I got home I went STRAIGHT to the gym and got in a 1.5 hour ride on the stationary.
Since the stationary hit's it's max at 60 minutes, I rode an hour at random level 10 and managed around 18.1 miles. Then I reset for another 30 minutes at level 15 and managed 9.7 miles. I'm still curious if the higher level equals a higher gear since I rode faster at a higher level, but oh-well (maybe I'm just THAT good - no? maybe not). I got 27.8 miles in, did a good amount of stretching and I'm happy with that.
Tomorrow, I'm up "early" for a two mile swim. Then after work it's back to the gym for yoga (if I can make it there on time) and circuit training for Jess. I'm already feeling hungry just thinking about it and I JUST ate dinner. haha
Quick Questions:1. Do you have inner battles over what to do that day for a workout? Which side tends to win?
Usually my eager athlete wins (what can I say, I still think I'm invincible), but lately I'm trying my best to be "smart" about my training. It's slow progress!
2. Does anyone else detest stationary bikes?
I cannot wait for the weather to change so I can get my bike out of storage and really RIDE!
Stay fit. Stay healthy.
