Today was my first official day training for the Camino de Santiago. I won’t say it was intentional. I was up studying for my only final this mod. I was getting stir crazy so I decided to hit the treadmill with my tablet. Two hours later I guess I got a workout in.
- 15 minutes elliptical at 5.0 mph (1.25 miles)
- 61 minutes treadmill at a 20-minute mile pace (3 miles)
- 4 x 25 situps
- 4 x 25 curls
- 4 x 15 incline press
Feeling: A little sore in the hip flexors and knees. I wore a neoprene knee brace on my right knee and a patellar tendon strap on my left knee. My goal is to be able to walk the Camino without the knee braces. 4.25 miles and I am feeling good though.
Weight: 242 pounds – clearly a long way to go.
Recovery: Vega One protein shake mixed with Bolthouse Farms Tropical Goodness smoothie. Added a little Vega Sport pre-workout for a kick to keep studying. I need to remember to stretch after workouts.
