I had another long day out on the road but was able to have solid nutrition day. Started off with a Whey Protein Shake with banana and a whole wheat bagel with some organic peanut butter. One thing that is a little annoying is that my supplements need to be taken on an empty stomach and it is not recommended to eat for a half hour afterwards. So, I have been waking up early to take the supps and then I check emails and take care of the dogs before I eat. After breakfast I packed a couple of protein bars and my creatine and nitix into a cooler and hit the road. I had a protein bar for each snack and a 12-inch turkey on whole wheat from Subway for lunch! I just finished off a late dinner of grilled chicken breast, long grain rice, and carrots and broccoli.
I was not able to get to the gym until 7pm and to give myself an added boost I took some NO-Xplode. And it worked wonderfully! I was able to hit the Shoulders & Arms workout with a great deal of intensity and felt completely exhausted afterwards. My left shoulder was feeling a little tender but not at all limiting. It did not prevent me from holding back on a single exercise. I even busted through the straight arm extensions in the bonus round!
I was feeling beat but sucked it up and refocused on Ab Ripper X. It was not my most intense ARX workout but it was still a pretty good one. I even had a little left over to do two sets of five Windshield Wipers. It hurt to walk down the steps to the locker room after those suckers!
Tomorrow is an exciting day! Not because I get to do cardio, but because I am getting properly fit to my new Tri Bike and I get to bring it home. The LBS (Local Bike Shop) is even going to take me out to the parking lot and practice clipping in and out of the pedals ... should be fun! Depending on the time I get home it will either be a Cycle day or if dark I will got hit the treadmill.
