Yesterday, I left the cities as soon as the Vikings were done spanking the Cowboys rears and made it home in time to throw my bags in my room, change into my workout clothes, and head to the gym.
Usually, after a 3.5 hour drive home from a weekend in the cities I have no energy, or should I say desire, to do any sort of workout. However, since I knew I was taking a REST day today I had to do something.
I had 1 hour and I needed to use it wisely.
With that one hour, I got a hard, fast ride on the bike - 16. 2 miles, and then did some sprints on the treadmill - 1 mile total. It's been a long time since I did a "run-off" the bike and my legs were definitely not used to it, but it only took a minute to get into my stride. I felt great and got home just in time to catch the season premier of 24!
I think I might like the idea of taking a REST day on Monday. I didn't set my alarm for the butt crack of dawn this morning, only to roll over and reset it for an hour later, and I feel quite rested and ready to go for the week. No guilt here!
Happy Monday, y'all!
