Call me paranoid, but I think I’m getting sick. I got to my office this morning and sneezed twice in a row and then felt my nose running.
Due to the fact that I have training to do, a football game to play, and a life to live I decided to take immediate action. I ran down to the GNC and got a mega bottle of Echinacea. The stuff is like an oil change for your immune system. Popped a couple of those bad boys and we’re good to go. Just to be safe, I’ll take tonight off from the gym. Drink some orange juice. Eat a salad for lunch. By tomorrow morning I’ll feel like a million and one dollars.
It’s all about taking immediate action. With anything in life.
Workout last night was intense. I pushed it.
Small setback: I got on the treadmill and wanted to do a speed workout. Warm up with a jog and then run 1 mile in 6:40. Couldn’t do it. I lasted 3 minutes at a 9.0 pace and that was it. Showed me that I have been neglecting my speed workouts. I only have 25 days until the half marathon so I think I’ll try to do 3 speed workouts in that time. A mile at a sub 7 minute pace. Throw that in with my weekly 5k run, the weekly 10k run, and my (death march) long run for the week and I can smell that time clock reading 1:59.19…………….
I haven’t done push ups in months, maybe over a year. So yesterday when I banged out 45 with relative ease I was encouraged. I’d like to be able to do 75 in a row, but for now I’ll worry about running.
Efficient workday. Got a lot done this morning.
Great commute this morning. Although, any day that the 6 train doesn’t explode is a decent commute in my opinion.
