I had the best workout

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

My morning workouts the last couple of weeks have been nothing to write home about, although I have upped my running (yay, 'goal met') in anticipation of a half in September. And I have done a few more strength sessions than before (all of these babies count because I didn't do any before). But, boy, I kind of dragged through them--except for today.

I actually ate something before working out! Instant Quaker brown sugar oatmeal (the lower in sugar kind). Granted, not the best pre-workout meal, but better than none apparently, because I felt this way all during my run:

When DH and the dog met me at the door for a 3-mile walk when I returned, I still felt pretty good.

Fuel for the body, what a concept ;-).

Topic for discussion: Why is it so hard to find a non-salacious picture of Wonder Woman?

    Yeah, I need fuel before workouts too. PNB on whole wheat toast with OJ one hour before running. Works for me.

    Afternoon runs are almost always better for me for this reason, but it's too hot to do too much after the sun comes up now. I just can't eat that much that early in the morning. I think my body is starting to adapt because my runs have been stronger this week.

There's something to be said for getting up and getting it done, even if it isn't your peak performance.

    Way to go on fueling your body! I have oatmeal every single day and I love it!

Hmm, I think LJoyce55 said it best. Wonder Woman was created by a man LOL!

  Glad you have so much energy. Wonder Woman was created by a man. Go figure.
