This is what I consider a perfect Saturday. No stress, no rush. Life is good.
10 am - woke up (went home late and feeling sick)
11:30 am - bum around the house and started my long ride on the trainer
2:45 pm - stretch, protien drink, epson salt bath, shower
3:30 pm - prepared lunch, wolf it down, clean up
4:45 pm - snooze
5:30 pm - got up, do some chores
7:00 pm - change and head out to friend's b-day dinner
I did a lot of grinding on my bike. Start off on the mid ring and every 20 min I switch one gear over. RPM drops as well. From 90+ down to 70 at the end before I cool down. Even though I am grinding, I keep my HR low. This is still aerobic. It felt great though to just grind.
I haven't tried the spinerval DVDs yet. I am watching 24 Season 1 right now. Woah drama and action..love the sub plots.
I am feeling sick. Not full blown cold but I lost my voice this morning. I know I am not well when I have trouble swallowing. I am feeling 85% right now. Taking a lot of Vit C + hot water w/ lemon + honey. Of course, I am sleeping a lot. :). Finally, a chance to be lazy.
