Before I launch into today's post, I wanted to let you know that I recorded a fun podcast today, but my blogging software had some trouble uploading (they have been changing DNS information, so that's likely the culprit). I will get that podcast up as soon as my software will allow me to.
The fire burns hotter than ever today. I spent the evening yesterday reading Flatten Your Abs and then put it into action during this morning's workout. It was a simple 4 exercise core workout, but I felt it afterward. I feel like I need to flatten my abs and since this is what Adam uses, this is what I'm going to use. It worked for him and it is going to work for me.
I did a great Max-OT treadmill session. It was my third one since starting that method. I managed to get 1.51 miles in 16 minutes the first time out, 1.66 the second time out and today I hit 1.75 miles! It is an amazing system for those of you who like to challenge yourself. I find that it reminds me of weightlifting because in order to get further each time you have to push yourself to a higher speed number (akin to increasing the weights) or you won't get to the goal of beating the last time. I also find that in just 16 minutes I have my butt kicked!
As previously stated, the FYA workout was short, but sweet. Several hours later, I am feeling my abdominal workout!
I feel like I've fallen deeper into the zone today. I can't explain it. My nutrition has been perfect today. I've gotten in my EFAs and I've eaten 100% clean. It was a good day.
