AM: Core Work, 20 Minutes Elliptical Trainer, AIS
PM: 60 Minutes Spin On Trainer
Stepped out of my comfort zone this morning and did some elliptical trainer. I planned on doing 10 minutes and that became 15, then 20 at which point I forced myself to stop. As expected my knee was tender after but not bad. Cycling is painless on the knee but the elliptical is a little better for getting my running head back. Did some solid core work and a full active isolated stretch routine. More than anything it was to kill time before going to work.
Drove home with Coxy and jumped on the trainer for an hour. Again I was confronted with only having one hour to train so I rather get a strong session on the trainer than deal with riding outside. I rode high cadence to get the hills of yesterday out of my legs. Despite my frustrations with the bike, I do love how hard I can train day in, day out. I felt amazing today but had I done a hard long run yesterday it would not have been followed up with such a spring in the old step.
Bat for lashes on Letterman last night. Watch the video, I need say no more.
