double days.

by Hillary on July 13, 2011

Hey hey!! Seeing that it’s Workout Wednesday, you can probably guess via the post title that today I did not one, but two workouts. Silly… maybe. Fun… entirely!

Workout #1:

It was a cool, cloudy morning, so I headed to the (outdoor) track for my second and final speed workout. I parked my car, jogged to track, ran an 800 (2 laps), then 1 mile @ 6:42, another 800 and jogged to the gym where I ran 2 laps around the (indoor) track and called my 3 mi. run d.o.n.e.

Workout #2:

60-minute cycle class + 10-minutes “a little this, a little that” strength training while I waited for class to start.

I was contemplating whether going to cycle tonight was a good idea, seeing as though x-training wasn’t on my SmartCoach plan – and I should be tapering – but I don’t regret my decision. I had a lot of energy (thanks to 4 dark chocolate espresso beans) and gave it all I got. Just to reference how much I sweat in these classes, I lost 1.2 lbs.* (in water weight) – ridiculous!

*a.m. weight vs. post-exercise weight

After Workout #2, I immediately replenished with plenty of protein and will be hydrating all night ‘til I hit the hay. I’m looking forward to two easy days of x-training and then it’s Race Day!

Do you ever do “double days”?

In other news… I’ve been selected as a Brand Ambassador for the Foodbuzz/Yahoo! Support Share our Strength Program – cool deal!

Join me in support of Yahoo!’s $20,000 commitment to Share our Strength! This is a quick and easy way to commend Yahoo! for its partnership with an organization working to end hunger in the America.

In need of shower #2…

Night!

I usually don’t plan for double days but when they happen it’s b/c of something fun involving exercise so I like them!
