My plan was to have a quick and mellow gym visit yesterday. Quick and mellow? No such thing!
I was too sore to lift weights yesterday, and I am pretty sure I pinched a nerve between my elbow and wrist. So, I opted to hop on the bike and get in some cardio. Ever since my 5k training passed, I have been lacking in that department.
I was GOING to ride the bike for a half hour or so, just to get my heart beating and my body sweating. Well, that half hour quickly turned into an hour as I found myself yearning to see how far I could get and how many calories I could burn.
I maintained a steady pace, slipped in a lot of HIIT, heavy hills, etc., and finished my ride at 16.26 miles and 524 calories. Not great, not terrible. The furthest I have gone in an hour is a little under 18.5 I believe. Given the fact that I haven’t done that in a long time… I will settle for 16+!
I was sweating like crazy, my feet were numb and I was walking like a zombie. So much for an easy day at the gym!
