Turn around day (not much sleep)

Cardio Streak Day 482
2.30 mile walk /jog
0430hrs 72F

Today was my turn-around day. I got to bed around midnight and was up at 0430 for the morning walk.

I did my usual 2.3 miles this morning, fast walking with a little jogging thrown in just to make the distance and after a quick shower, headed for the office. I got there at about 0545 and had a bagel and coffee. The only thing "bad" about this office is the coffee is instant and it really sucks, however the lack of sleep forced the issue.

At about 0800 I started with strength training and I only got a total of six sets today instead of my goal of ten. I did bench press, crunches, tricep dips, seated leg extensions, barbell curls, forward stretching, and standing quad stretches. Whew, I'm getting tired just talking about it.

One pleasant surprise - today was a catered Mexican Food day in my honor because of my birthday last week. WooHoo, I resisted the urge and did not pig out. I had about five chips, only two tortillas, one small spoonful of refried beans and rice, and lots of veggies to go with only a few ounces of chicken. It was grand!

My cardio total for today:
2.3 miles
30 minutes

Jog/Walk Across America:
Team distance to date: 2623
Current Location: Rawlins, Wyoming
