Day 18… The Agony of deFeet
|Where did the mountain go?|
Tough one today, not so much the workout as the getting myself in gear and motivated. The weather has turned and it’s currently cold, windy, rainy, and I am living in the clouds. The perfect day to sit up next to a fire and drink hot coco, not get up and train for the Spartan Beast and World’s Toughest Mudder. The mountain is buried in the clouds. Did I mention the rain? Enough complaining, seriously had a hard time finding motivation today. Once I got myself in the gym another story. Just proves again the hardest part is getting out the door, or in my case down the hall.
I decided after much prodding from friends to take it easy on the foot today and headed to the gym to do a 45 minute spin. I hate working out inside. It’s so boring, but sometimes you have to do what you have to do. I knew I had a 12 miler coming up on Saturday morning and wanted to be ready for it. So to the gym I went, armed with my laptop and Hulu. The only thing that gets me though the indoor rides is watching a show at the same time. I kept the bike at a decent resistance and just get spinning. Happy to report no foot pain the entire time and looking forward to Saturday.
After I hoped off the bike I made a little detour outside and helped spread a bunch of small rocks (gravel). Yes, rocks keep finding their way into my workouts! We must have a special connection. After loading up a few wheelbarrows full and helping spread them around I headed back to the gym to lift. Today’s lifting…
