It's 4:30, my husband snickered. He'd been up for a while and could hear my alarm being slapped on to snooze again. I still need to tweak my timing for going to bed and getting up to work out, but I am making progress. I was out the door 15 mins earlier than yesterday and it gave me more chill time at home before i had to leave for work. yay.
I did intervals on the bike this a.m. I choose a speed program and 20 seconds of every minute, I would break into speed demon mode and really pick up the pace. I was about halfway through my timer, when I realized the bike only programmed me for 15 seconds of super spin time, so the extra 5 sec were just a bonus.
Doing the intervals for every minute (minus the warm-up and cool-down) really made the time on the bike fly by. It also made me sweat, which is something I have not really done in a while. I could have sworn I heard my pores saying, "thank you."
All in all, it was a good morning. I had a nagging feeling I had forgotten something and when I got to the gym and saw someone having a big sip of water, I realized what it was. ha ha. Good to know, my memory might be going, but at least I am not completely crazy. ;) I had time to make breakfast and empty and re-fill the dishwasher before leaving for work. Another 15 mins on my side and won't have to jump in and out of the shower so quickly. I'll get there.
My best feeling and realization this a.m. is not only am I taking care of myself appropriately again, I am also experiencing very little leg pain which I had chronically before. Woo hoo! So, I guess my pores AND my legs say Thank you!
