Ok so here's the deal.
Hang on, this is Training Related!
Monday morning, I'm getting ready for work. I live on a corner lot, so sometimes I park on different sides of my house. Either the front or the side. The side lot has more space, so I usually park there. I look out my side window, and my car ain't there.
Well, I think to myself, It must be out front. I look out the front, and "Shit! It ain't there, either!!! Holy Fuck!!" So there I am on my corner, looking up and down the street like a moron thinking, FUCK! Some motherfucker stole my car!!!
I just had it tuned up, emissions tested, renewed my tabs, yada yada yada and was all ready to go for another 50K miles, so to say that I am a little pissed off is an understatement.
Well, being a goal-oriented type of guy, I have had a little time to get my crap together and sort out when I can get a new car, assuming I may never see my it again.(it's a 92 Sentra, an easy mark, I've been told)
In the meantime, I have to either ride the bus or my bike, to & from work and to the gym.(and everywhere else) I have talked about this on this forum before. Now that the weather is looking better, freezing my butt off won't really be a concern.
Fortunately hereabouts we can attach our bikes to the front of city busses, so getting most of the way to & from where I'm going won't sap all my energy.
I know that biking is totally different from lifting, so I am already planning on taking it easy on my legs at the gym. Some days after I am done with legs I am so sore I can barely walk, let alone bike a couple of miles to a bus stop - or 8 miles to my house. (I have no endurance - none.)
My first day doing the bike-bus thing is tomorrow. I'm staying on a 3-day split.
Doing the early morning thing works the best, so's to avoid crowds, so who has some good post-workout carbs to load up on? (Besides a healthy protein shake and a bagel?)
thanks in advance, and sorry about the long post!
