Today was a LONG and frustrating day at work today. I’ll leave it at that and not go into work-details :)
I woke up this morning at 5:30 when the BF was going to go workout and swim and I had planned to run a nice 4 miler. That did not happen because I couldn’t open my eyes and set my alarm for 7. When it went off at 7 I hit snooze for 45 minutes. 45 minutes!! I basically rolled out of bed, threw my greasy hair in a ponytail and coffee with my eggs and waffles.
I finished around 4:00 today and thought maybe I would go to the ab class that was a half an hour before the spin class I was supposed to go to at 5:30 tonight. I came home and sat down for 15 minutes and when I tried to get up to change for the gym I knew it wasn’t going to happen. I NEED to start taking recovery drinks when I kill my muscles at BodyPump! My legs still feel trashed from all the extra weight on the squats and lunges Monday night.
When training for the Pittsburgh Marathon… I always made a smoothie with my recovery powders:
Lesson learned… when I work out hard – I should probably make a recovery smoothie.
When I got home, my day got better when I saw this face:
and got this in the mail:
and even though I was bummed about not working out and being tired I was pretty ecstatic when I saw that…
I’m okay with my “off” day on my workout log because I know I have BodyPump tomorrow night and will hopefully run too :)
