Monday, todays workout.
Todays workout was quite nice, I felt very energized and ready to do just about anything! Actually, in another post i'll explain to you readers about how I get all of my energy in the morning; but as of now, i'll just go on with how my day went. So I got to the gym, said hello to a few friends who take an aerobics class in the morning and got on the treadmill. Next to me was this fairly big man on another machine beside mine, he looked like he was trying to get into shape and on a mental note I congratulated him. So for when I get it started, I usually put the machine on "Manual" so that I can go my own pace rather than running these pre-sets such as "Alpine pass" and some other place i'd rather not run. So I turn my tunes on and start off with a walk, Mondays can really weigh down on you if you take the weekend to relax like me so I felt a little stiff when I had started running. After a little bit of running though, I don't know what hit me but I felt really good, so good that my normal running pace was a tad too slow for me. I do not know if the machine is too accurate, but if it is, normally I run at 8~8.5 mph, but today I felt great, I eventually got to turning it up to 9 then 10 and then ultimately 11. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw the fat chubby man next to me looking at me like "Holy crap what's his problem?" Of course I did stop to take a breather in between my running, but in the end I was able to make it in with 2 and a quarter miles within 23 minutes. I decided to not work my chest today, I felt like I just had to relax, so I found the nearest bench and just relaxed until my pilates class. So once that started, I felt energized again, and buzzed through the class following the instructor to the mark, not stopping between actions. Tomorrow, or later today perhaps i'll post for you readers my way of getting to that energy that drives me.
