Is it me or does everyone have tons of energy after a workout?
Today, I did Level 2 of my 30-Day Shred video (squats with inverted V arm raises = ouch), then did a hill intervals walking workout on the ‘mill for 20 minutes. Felt like running, but I always have that fracture hanging over me as a reminder to just chill.
But now I’m running around cleaning like a mad woman: laundry, food prep, picking up clutter, taking out trash and recycling (which we still have not caught up on since Christmas — we need recycling pick up every week, garbage could go every other, really), and vacuuming. (Okay, you got me: the Roomba vacuumed. But somebody’s gotta turn it on, right?)
Anyway, is this just me?
Also, Mel posted on Facebook about the Lake Sammamish Half on March 26. Anyone else doing this race? Or has anyone done it? I have a 17-miler planned that weekend, so I think a half would help break things up. Obviously, I will not be going for any half PR or anything. Just taking it nice and slow. But it would be a new trail with people around. (It’s only $50 if you enter before Feb. 20.)
Okay, back to work! Laundry-folding time!
Wow, your post even SOUNDED energetic! I get an energy buzz after a good workout too… as long as I keep moving. Once I sit down I'm toast. 🙂
Um, since you have so much energy feel free to head over to my house when you're done.Winks & Smiles,Wifey
me too me too! that level 2 in INSANE with the squats. My butt hurt so bad the 1 & only time i did that work out. need to get back to those this week…i have a 14-miler scheduled for the weekend of the lake samm half so that would actually be pretty good. i could do a 1 mi warmup then run the race at workout pace. nice! a date? You know, marymoor park is quite close to the redhook brewery. a nice post-race re-fueling locale?
yeah! so weird right? Last night I got on my bike trainer at 8:50. When I got off at 9:30 I was wired! i feel like I have a ton more energy these days!!And the 30 day shred…I need to find my DVD and fire it up! Sounds awful (in a good way!!)
Just found your blog–love it–and started following it. I follow TallMom too. I will be at the Lake Sammamish Half, hoping for a PR. If a short, nervous woman says hello to you, that's me!
Hi Carla. Thanks for the follow! I'll be looking for you at LSH!
