Do you prefer to workout with a buddy or by yourself?
I’m usually a solo workout person. I am a pretty focused person when I workout and I kind of do my own thing. Michael and I hike and bike together. I have a few friends who I sometimes workout with.
I’ve run the waterfront with a coworker once before. He wasn’t a runner but wanted to start. He was much faster than me so I pushed myself harder and I was pretty sore the next day. Another co-worker of mine mentioned running together too. I haven’t said yes yet because she a really good runner and I think she’d put me to shame!
The plus sides to having a buddy are many. It helps change up routines. Keeps you motivated. Makes you accountable.
QUESTION: How do you fuel your workouts?
Peanut butter is a good pre-workout fuel for me. Michael recently bought a special powder to mix with water.
Here are the Nutrition Stats:
He loves it. He said he notices a difference in his energy level and recovery time as a result of this drink. I’ve tried it twice and dislike the flavor so much I can’t drink it. It tasted like Tang to me. Ick!
Does anyone have any other recommendations? I’m looking for something I can use on Reach The Beach next month.
I ran at lunch today. It was a great run. I decided to forgo the jacket but wondered if I would regret it once I got outside. It was a tad chilly! I was lucky, however, and once I started running it was the right temperature. The weather was perfect and I didn’t need my jacket. I ran the entire loop without walking at all.
Here’s today’s eats:
Breakfast: 2 fried eggs, 1 piece of toast, coffee
Lunch: 2 pieces of pizza, Fiber One bar
QUESTION: So what do you prefer? A workout buddy? Or do you do it solo?
