Good workout yesterday; Riding this morning.

This is how I've been feeling this week.

This is how I've been feeling this week.

I did my chest/delts/triceps workout a little earlier than usual yesterday, and it was a good one. I felt a little off at the start of the workout, but I quickly found my groove and was really happy with how things went. I decided to place the focus of the workout on heavy, low rep compound exercises. Even though I was doing reps in the 4-6 range and longish (2-3 minute) rest intervals, I was sweating much more than usual–and I even had the air conditioning set to 70 degrees F. There’s no question that the heat exhaustion I suffered on Saturday is having some lingering effects on me with regards to how my body handles exertion and heat. Based on what I’ve been told and read my internal thermostat should return to normal in time, but it may be several weeks or even a couple of months before that happens. In the meantime I’m going to have to be extra careful while I’m more susceptible to heat exhaustion and heat stroke.

My mom, who was understandably very concerned about what happened on Saturday, asked me while we were on the phone yesterday why I didn’t take Sport Beans (my preferred electrolyte source when biking) with me on Saturday. I wish I could have told her that it was a simple oversight, but the truth is I was out of them and I blew it off. About a minute later my mom said, “There are two cases of Sport Beans on the way to you–don’t ever do that again.” Aren’t moms great? Thanks, mom! Oh, by the way, I’m also fresh out of Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lenses.

So this morning I’m going to get a ride in, but I’m going to stick to paved riding around the neighborhood and I’m only going to do 8-10 miles. I’m also going to go do the ride before it gets too hot. Hopefully things will go well and I can go for a longer ride this weekend. No matter how things go I’m still going to wait at least another week before I attempt long distances or sustained high heart rate biking.

  1. LOL on the lense.

    I was thinking about you yesterday. I was at Dick’s Sporting Goods for a jump rope and they had a huge bucket-type thing full of packages of Sports Beans. I didn’t have a reason to buy any as I hide from the sun and heat as much as possible, but, if you have a Dick’s near by, it might be worth it to see if have them as well. Although having mom send you a care package of them isn’t a bad deal either. =)

    Glad to hear that you’re on the mend.

    • I’m pretty well set for now! The 2 cases came in today, and I loaded up my CamelBak with a half-dozen packages or so.

      We have on Dick’s in Orlando, but it’s really far from where I am. I doubt they beat Amazon’s price, especially when buying by the case with free shipping and no tax… or if mom buys them for you. 😉
