    Another great early AM run before work! Starting to like this whole later new schedule thing.

    3.15 mi @ 40 mins - made it the whole way this time (left a little earlier than usual)

    Felt great to get the whole run in ... was a little tired afterwards, but I definitely lasted longer than I had expected, yay for that. And the weather was perfect. 70's and breezy! Woohoo!

    Oh believe me I'm not really either. But since I had to change my schedule to 9:45a-6p I can still get a work-out in before work and not have to be up at the crack! Then I have nothing to worry about after work.

    Arnold used to do that back in the day workout early. The psychology behind it was just what you said, after your work your tired and you already got it done.

    Keep up the good work Lexagon

    Today's Run:
    3.2mi @ 40 mins. feelsgoodman.jpg

    I think I figured out the key to my running success, don't think about running while running. Sounds strange, but the more I think about what I'm doing the harder it seems. I somehow managed to distract myself and I was cruising along like nobodys business, it felt great.

    In other news, I'm hopefully picking up a new mountain bike after work today. Time to hit the road and the trails! YAY...super excited.

    Off Day ... So now workout update. I did have a HUGE sushi dinner last night with a good friend @ a new restaurant and it was amazingly good. So glad I went!

    Picking up the new bike this weekend, as long as everything goes well. Little trip out of town to the beach to the Trek store (since nobody local carries it). Definitely excited. And for anyone interested ... this is what I'm getting.
    TREK 8.4 DS

    It is a hybrid, but it's enough for what I'm going to use it for and since my dad was nice enough to offer to help and upgrade to a nicer bike I decided that I can handle the hybrid instead of going straight mountain. In reality, I'll probably use it more on the bike path with a few dirt track excursions here and there.

    Today's Run:

    3.14 mi @ 38 mins

    Time was good, but I felt like I was really having to push myself today. May be partially due to today being the 3rd day I've run this week. Even though I've taken every other day off, I'm not used to running so many times a week for that long .. haha! Still a good run!

    6/9 - Bike Ride

    Picked up my new bike and took it for a ride along the bike path at the beach. Figured I might as well enjoy it while I was down there before heading home. I LOVE this bike .. so nice, the ride is smooth and it's lighter than ever! Mind you I haven't bought a new bike since the 90's so yeah!

    Ended up being about 10 miles - rode for about 3 hrs, but stopped a few times to sit in the sand and just relax. All in all a great day! Exhausted from being in the sun and of course sunburned because I didn't put my block on early enough hehe... ooops!

    Today's Ride (6/10):

    8mi ~ 1 hr

    Took the bike on the dirt (sand) trails that parallel the bike path I normally run on. Soooooo much fun! And I love SpeedLock on my shocks. You have to pop on the bike trail from time to time and it's much easier riding on pavement w/out the shocks LOL. Rides awesome though! No wipes, but I did get stuck in a couple spots of soft sand ... I mean it's the desert, not surprising. Now I am officially exhausted and filthy ... oh well!! Had fun either way!

    Oh and I didn't run into any interference with my front tire ... yesterday I may have had a little issue getting it back on my bike .. just sayin ...

    Tonight's Ride:

    60 mins ~ 13mi

    I stayed on the bike path this time, just wanted to get out and ride. The fact that it was 94-95F didn't really matter, it was actually kinda breezy and felt great! Had to race the sun back a little ... almost set before I got home .. haha! Either way fun ride. No idea why I decided to go, but just wanted to get out of the house for a while. Seemed like a good enough reason.

    We have about 60 miles of paved bike path or something like that. It's pretty cool and almost completely flat

    Saturday's Ride:

    15 mi ~ 1.5 hrs.

    Felt like a looooong ride. I decided to ride from the house to the bike trail (which is the added 4 miles round trip). I didn't realize just how hot it was. But I got a good 5 miles of dirt trails in and the rest was on the bike path. I did buy a new mini hydration pack that is awesome. Pretty sure it's probably a kids pack, but it was red and it fits ... so that's what I got.

    Today's Bike Ride:

    10.2 mi - 45mins

    Decided to not take the bike off road this AM. The bike path was good enough. Thankfully it's cool and breezy in the AM .. at least for now. There were A LOT of people out today. I'm guessing everyone is tired of the heat in the afternoon. Then again it would be nice if the runners didn't run in packs of 3 across the path either. Makes it really hard to get around them. Oh well. LOL

    Nice! I think that will become a popular stack. Use in combination with some BCAAs and possibly a cort blocker and you'll be covering quite a few bases. You know I'll definitely follow your log.

    The Magic Matcha goes well with lemon flavors (Gatorade, RecverPro, etc). I don't think I've tried mixing the Red Raspberry with Matcha yet. I have tried some various flavors of Crystal Light with Matcha. Some were good and others were just okay.

    I've been lazy and just tossing a scoop in my mouth and chugging water to shoot it down the hatch lately.

    We used to just blend it with a little soy milk, ice and a little sweetner at the tea shop I worked at. Definitely a great kick and a cool treat, almost like a milkshake. Not sure if this powder would work the same, but I'm sure it would.

    Last Night: Restorative Yoga

    Went to a restorative yoga class with a couple friends. I was a bit skeptical, but I went anyway because I've been so tense lately I figured it couldn't hurt. It actually ended up being awesome. We worked on stretches and just relaxation (no crazy poses or anything). I felt so much better after. So I'm going back next week. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to turn into a Yogi or anything, but every once in a while I don't see the harm.

    Today:
    Was supposed to go for a ride this AM, but I was tired and really lazy so I'm not going to. I have a lot of errands to run before I leave tomorrow AM ... so I'll just hope I get some exercise while I'm away and if not .. no big deal. Vacation is vacation! And I really need some time at the beach!

    Quick update:
    Was at the beach for the weekend, so nothing really going on there. Did manage to get myself nice and burned ... ugh! Hoping to be back at it by the weekend, as long as I can bend my legs by then. LOL burning the back of your knees is no fun task! So as long as they will bend again this weekend I'm good to go and I'm getting really antsy!

    Ready to start StrongLifts 5x5 on July 1

    Double post ... but as an addition I do need to get my nutrition back on track. I haven't been horrible, but not as tight as it used to be. I need to buy a new food scale mine died

    I believe D2 does or has done something similar to this. I think he uses almond milk, though.

    Don't feel bad about pale legs. I work outside in Central Florida, but I have to wear Dickies Pants all day. My face and arms stay tan year around, but my legs are always 100 shades lighter, lol.

    Umm I might have fallen asleep in the sun at the beach. And by the time I realized I needed more sunscreen it was already too late. So I'm just waiting for the back of my legs to heal a little more and then I'm heading back to gym. It's been an annoying/painful week lol but I'll live.
