New Month...

Day 60

65 Min Elliptical
5.2 Miles
25 second transition
35 Min Bike
10.1 Miles

Made it over to the gym this afternoon for my weekend cardio around 3pm. The first few minutes on the elliptical were a little tough because of the squats I did on Saturday. It took about 10 minutes and I was feeling pretty good.

Once I got over to the bike things changed. About 3 miles in my quads were screaming at me to stop and I was planning on shutting it down at the 5 mile mark but I pressed on to double that mileage. The last 2 miles on the bike were just brutal and when I hit the 10 mile mark I just collapsed on the bike totally spent, I love that feeling!

Like I said above yesterday I had a great lifting session and I only did a few sets of squats but I haven't done squats in quite some time so I knew the DOMS were going to be rough this morning. I went through my normal full body routine and felt pretty good about the amount of weight I was moving. Friday I did my early morning fasted cardio and another good lifting session Friday afternoon. So far August is off to a great start and it will continue. This month I'm going to do one run a week out on the road and slowly get back to running full time. Time to start building back the endurance I once had last year. I even started to show a little speed a year ago and I hope I will get some of that back. I'm going to continue the 3 to 4 days a week of lifting, 5 days of cardio and I'm hoping for another 10 pounds gone in August.

Time to start another good week...
