Who says fun doesn’t come in packages, boxes, and bags? Oh wait – that’s Christmas. Christmas certainly does not come in packages, but fun definitely can!
When I woke up yesterday, my legs felt like lead. They were heavy, and I was tired. The gym wasnothappening. Instead I got up, read a few blogs, drank coffee, and eventually got to work. Cleo didn’t help my motivation.
I later heard a knock on the door. My Running Warehouse shipment arrived Squeeeee! How could I not get excited about a new Asics running skort and Asiccs kicks? For you shoe lovers out there, I ordered these babies for just $53 with free shipping. I think they’re the 2010 model of the GT 2160.
Perhaps it was the package, or perhaps it was the restful morning, but my motivation returned. As soon as I got out of work, I busted out Katy’s “99 Hardcore Workout.” My arms were jello the rest of the night. She ends her workout with an 11-minute run, but I opted for a walk instead.
When I got the mail after my walk, I found more goodies. Muscle & Fitness recently asked me to be an ambassador for their online store. I’m not sure if that’s kosher with my ad network, but I at least agreed to review some of the products for a few months. (Twist my arm, right?)
This little sample was perfect for my needs yesterday. I just finished a tough workout, but I didn’t want a full protein shake since I was about to cook up some high-protein veg chili in about half an hour. Insert “Aminolast: recovery & endurance BCAA superfuel” here! For only 10 calories, one serving contains 2 g protein, 10 g amino acids, and some electrolytes.
I honestly thought it even tasted good – kind of like strawberry lemonade. I usually try to go for more natural foods and supplements, but this really fit the bill for my needs yesterday.
