Today was an all cardio day. I worked long hours, so I ended up hitting the gym in the late afternoon for my cardio. I worked very hard at increasing the intensity and got up to 9.0 mph for a short time. Most of the intervals were a high of 8.5 mph, but for 3 intervals I hit that 9.0 mph mark.
Today I was reflecting on my past and how I don't ever want to weigh what I once did. I know I won't ever go back to that. At the same time, I was thinking about the present and how I'm eating. I wondered why the low carb eating wasn't bothering me until it dawned on me–I've been cycling my carbs for a long time now and my body is definitely used to going 3 days with low carbs, but not as low as Metabolic Surge calls for. I find myself looking forward to the all fruit day. It can't come soon enough. More importantly, the idea of the all protein day is awesome as well.
I did some work on my next podcast today. I hope everyone likes it when I upload it this weekend. I've been having major internet problems and think I need to have the modem replaced. I will take care of that in the next 2 days so that I can be consistent with these entries.
Finally, thanks to everyone who has left me comments about the first podcast. You are an inspiration to me. As I look ahead to tomorrow and the workout I have planned, I am in awe of the fact that I will have to execute a deadlift along with a shoulder shrug in the same movement. I will let you know how that goes.
