Ooh, another “back” post. I see a theme here. Yesterday was “turkey burnoff” day with my triathlon team: a two hour spin/lift/run session designed to burn off the fat from our overindulgence the past couple of days. As soon as I heard about this I was all in, not just because of the turkey factor but because I really need to kick my training back into gear. I’ve been feeling unmotivated lately and I find that the best way to get back on that wagon is with a hard workout.
During the warmup we discussed what we’d eaten for Thanksgiving. After hearing about Dow’s trip to Winchester toÂ get pie on Wednesday, including a detour to the Golden Corral where he ate too much for me to remember, although I do recall hearing, “and then I had a cheeseburger,” I didn’t feel nearly as bad about the huge plate of food I inhaled on Thursday.
The spin/lift/run was 2 hours long, and involved three (I think) sets of biking, lifting weights, and sprinting for half a mile. I enjoyed the workout but today I can’t lift my arms and I feel like someone punched me in the abs. It even hurts to sneeze.
Still, it’s good to feel the burn again.
