Today's Workout

Today I did Sundays workout. I had to sit on my butt Saturday AND Sunday and finish watching Season 3 of True Blood and The Godfather Part 2 on DVD. I have never watched the Godfather and needed to catch up on True Blood. This upcoming weekend will be the latest season of Mad Men on DVD.

Usually I have coffee, oatmeal with a bit of whey protein and a spoon on PB. Then I try to force some water down and a multivitamin and a glucosamine & chondroitin. Then I have to wait an hour to go work out 'cuz I feel like I have a rock in my gut.

Not today.

Breakfast today was a Hammer Bar.

The carcass of my Hammer Bar

I felt fueled to work out without the rock in my gut after eating it. I could of had an extra cup of coffee but decided to just get out the door instead. I took a Banana Hammer Gel just to give it a try and as an excuse to work out a little longer.

I really liked the Bar. It was soft, chewy, easier to put down then a protein shake or egg and toast before working out.

I had 4 miles on the treadmill at Ghetto Renew. 13:30, 13:10, 12:35, 12:59. I have been using the Runners World free Smart Coach plan and my goal for Sunday (and tomorrow also) is 4mi @ 13:40. It was hot inside the building (as always) and I was dripping sweat before the end of the 1st mile. I think I would have been cooler running outside along the Greenbelt.

I went to the bathroom afterward to wash my hands, splash water on my face and suck down the gel.
I guess Body Renew doesn't have the dispenser keys for anything.

I swallowed the banana gel in 2 swallows. The taste was shocking because it was warm after in my pocket for an hour while I was on the treadmill. I have never had a gel before. But it was like eating a warm squishy banana. It tasted better then expected but real bananas are not the 1st fruit I would pick in the grocery store anyways. I could have finished my workout without it because I only did 20 min heavy weight training on my arms. I think it's been over 2 weeks since I have lifted and I felt weak today. Plus somehow I hurt my shoulder swimming laps 2 Sundays ago and it was bothering me a little doing some moves.

Now it is time for my 2XU recovery socks then get ready for my day at work. Ugh.

Do you gels or bars during a workout?

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
