Yeah, I had some for breakfast but that is not the toast that I am talking about. My body, it's toast, I'm tired, and have little energy.
My body is toast because of lifting weights last night. I up'ed the weights on my squats and pushed hard on the concentric (lifting portion) of the squat. When I had to do the leg presses, my legs were done and I stopped short of all my reps. Some good news... I cranked out 3 sets of 2 full chinups.
Tired because I woke up early this morning. I could have slept in this morning. I woke up at 4:30 because I was hungry.
No energy because I have been trying to scrub off all my Christmas fat and turn myself into a climber. Hah, that is not happenin.
Nothing that a recovery day won't fix. Will I take a recovery day... sorta. I am doing a mellow LSD ride. As recommended for weight lose in this training tip I am going to keep my HR below 70% HR Max. That is 134bpm for me. My normal cruising HR is about 150bpm.
Also, I am picking a tame route. From Midtown>Ft. Calhoun>Blair and beyond. Not very many hills. I have done several 4- 5hr ride so the duration shouldn't be too bad. The weather will be cooperating. It looks like the winds will be shifting from the South to the North while I am on the ride. So If I head straight North, I should have a tail wind both ways.
