If you can't read it, the mileage reads 3.1 and the time is 16:10. I have never been that quick to finish a 5k on an elliptical, and when I was approaching that time, I has to get a picture. The best part is, I feel like I could have done better. I followed this up with another 7.1 miles, coming in at, for you math majors, 10.2 miles. I always try to put in solid mileage on Wednesdays, so I was happy. I feel like Wednesday is a good day for this, as you have two days to "recover" before the long run/workout on Saturday.
Speaking of recovering, I got a new thing of protein powder from Sam's Club. I've been trying all kinds because I am not entirely convinced that they are all that different from each other. I just think the key is the protein content and the taste. Maybe I am wrong about this. Have any of you had different feelings? Anyways, here is a picture of the massive bag I purchased (so far it is pretty good. Good protein content too):
I do believe, however, that protein has definitely helped me improve and recover after each workout. Partially this might be mental, but everything I have read supports the idea. Do you all agree?
The rest of the week has been solid. I've done my usual lifting routine in the time that I have. I have done some extra core work, too. Yesterday, despite working 13 hours, was a success; I got up in the morning, did 7 miles on the cross ramp, and hit my arms and shoulders. I think this set me up to have the energy to get through the rest of the day. Still, the morning thing can be rough, especially when the gym is as dead as it was:
I like having people around now that I am confident in my appearance. I think having people around, especially people who are good looking and in shape, motivate me to the max.
Would like am empty gym or a medium crowd (no one likes it crowded)?
Do you feel confident at the gym? Have you always?
