So today was interesting, to say the least. I had a simple medical procedure yesterday, so I’m a little sore still this morning. My chest felt tight. The morning workout consisted of a light run, followed by some upper body strength training. My performance was…..well….lackluster at best. It was if I was simply going through the motions. The plan was to score a high quality running effort in the morning by crushing some hill repeats in Central Park. That plan was quickly changed to a light run followed by upper body work due to the residual discomfort from having a decent-sized needle jabbed into my chest. Everybody has a plan until they get punched in the mouth. Hmmmm…..maybe that Mike Tyson has some wisdom after all…….
I took midday off, and focused on taking in more water and less calories. Nutrition – otherwise known as The 4th Discipline (seriously, that sounds like the title of a crappy karate movie starring that dude that played Sho Nuff in the Last Dragon) was my in-office workout.
I spent a few hours in the gym this evening, starting with a strength workout for the legs, then a lite run of 2 miles with interval sprints baked in, and wrapping up with an hour on the bike.
The day started rough, and ended well. And to celebrate: 2 slices of NYC pizza and a glass of wine. Why? Because I earned it. (insert mic drop here).
