Yesterday morning I got up and did just what Tony Robbins says, I rolled out of bed and fell into my workout clothes and just hit the road for a run.
I have been running a lot on treadmills since the spring and finally got the guts up to run on the road like I blogged about last week. I started stong for a few minutes until the dinner and movie from the night before caught up with me.
I was listening to Eminem, and Jackson Browne, and Pearl Jam and muttering under my breath
“Damn you Coke”
“Damn you pizza”
“Damn you chocolate bar and popcorn”
No matter how well you think that you eat you will notice the next day if you have eaten bad. I can walk around or have an easy workout the day after eating badly but if you eat badly then really push yourself the next day you will find your tank half empty before you start.
None of us can eat great all the time, well not me and maybe you anyway. I find that I can eat and sleep not very well for a few days and then I eventually will pay the price with a bad workout and then clean up my lifestyle again so that I can get back to great days and great workouts.
