Mr. Neon walked into the office / treadmill room this morning and said, “Hey, you are really stinking up the place. Look! You are even sweating. It’s dripping from your elbows!”
I rolled my eyes and said, “Tempo runs will do that to you.”
He said, “I wasn’t complaining. I like it!”
He sweats buckets. I don’t. He frequently complains that I go through one towel on bike trainer rides while he goes through half a dozen. I guess he was impressed to see his Neon Runner Girl sweating up a storm before the sun came up.
Despite battling a strange stomach bug over the weekend, I appear to be back in training mode. This is good news…for the people in my life. It means I’m happier and my brain isn’t so muddled with stress, anxiety, and all those things that bring about RBF.
I got in both long workouts over the weekend. A 75minute / 15minute bike run brick on Saturday and a 9 mile long run on Sunday. I slept really hard Sunday night.
Last night I rode the trainer after work. I hate working out after work. It’s not my favorite thing. But I was determined to get my bike ride done. With Mondays being our rest day, I cannot miss Tuesday or it throws a wrench in the entire week. (Because if I miss Tuesday, I can skip out on Thursday or Friday. Harhar.)
This was my view from the trainer.
I don’t know what’s cuter. The red faced little boys who had just gotten done doing 1K repeats on our home cross country course. Or the little doggie who loves to sit next to them on the floor.
What was your workout today? Before work or after work?
