Pain in my companion!

I was pretty tired getting up this morning even though I went to bed early. Probably catching up from not enough sleep over the holiday weekend. Yesterday's training had me a little sore and slow moving to start the day. Did a 3 mile warmup and then hit 8 rounds of 2 minutes on and 1 minute off on my bike. Went to my outside personal velodrome (ok it is really a loop around a school) I still don't feel right when turning right not sure if it is psychological or what at this point. Reversed the loop and did some with left turns before going back to the right hand turns laps again. Happy this was a workout I like to do because it was a sluggish morning. Covered 5.34 miles avg speed was 17.5 mph max of 21.3 on this flat surface. Did my bike commute today too.

On my lunch hour at work I did  - 3 rounds for time of 30 pushups, 75 squats.
time: 11:23
round 1 - 3.25
round 2 -3.58
round 3 - 3.58

So I've been getting some commentary lately from people who think I need a rest day or that i've been overtraining. I'm sure they mean well but I really don't want to hear it. I find it amusing that people have no problem telling you, that you work out too much or your too strict with your diet etc. Why do they feel the need? I'll never understand that. Can you feel what I feel? Then how would you know? ok done venting and to bed early tonight hopefully! :)


  1. Yeah, about the people who seem to know what you need more than you do - tell me, are they generally out of shape and possibly overweight and complain about not having enough energy................ Keep doing what you're doing!

  2. I was trying to keep that part out of my blog post. That was the most of them although there were some that were in shape too.
