It’s official–I do run better in the evenings after a few meals than I do in the mornings on an empty stomach. I ran again last night after work for cardio, and it was so very easy to just jog slowly along at 6.2 mph for 35 minutes while watching the Olympics that I nearly fainted from shock when the time was up. I am apparently rather sensitive to the glycogen levels in my muscles when it comes to cardio.
Also, I am fairly creaky and stiff in the mornings, so the bouncy running motion is not exactly appealing at that time of day.
I must give special mention to the poor woman who was on the treadmill in front of mine. She was a 40’ish tanning booth junkie type with a big pile of overprocessed red hair clipped onto the top of her head. She was pretty small–maybe only 5’1″ or so–with matchstick legs and arms but absolutely out-sized breast implants that had to be a minimum DD cup in size. And she was bouncing along at 5.2 mph like a crippled chihuahua…in a spaghetti tank top with what appeared to be a string halter bikini top underneath.
I realize that her frontage was fake, but still…Doesn’t that HURT?
Many props to her for gamely sticking to her run, but owie! :ouch:
Chest/tris are done for today, and I plan to do a bit of YF tonight for fun, unless Chris decides to hang out at home and monopolize the TV instead of doing his usual Friday night card game with his friends.
Tomorrow is my last cardio session for this week, my second phone consultation with Kim and a day at the Orlando Megacon convention. I’ll be hanging out with some artist friends there and maybe meeting Tracer from Muscletank.net at his booth. If you see any pics from Megacon on the web, you can recognize me by my dorky red insulated lunch bag full of on-plan meals and the orange Nalgene water bottle hooked to the handle.
