I had sweat in my eye balls within 2.3 minutes of starting my treadmill run this morning. It was THAT HOT. It has been -25 for the past few days so apparently my gym decided to blast the heat to overcompensate for the cold. It was like walking into a wave of heat and insta-sweaty. I set the distance goal on the treadmill for 5 miles, but had to stop at 3 because it was just too hot. After a little warm up I ran the three at 8:34 min/mile.
I had a workout planned in my head but I had to change it up because there was no way I could spend that much time in the heat. I am really hoping they turn down the heat by tomorrow morning because I want to log some miles in the morning! With running not an option (I hate running on the track), and most of the fitness centre floor blasted with heat, I was lost.
I realized I hadn’t actually done a full spin class with THIS playlist. So I headed upstairs, where is was nice and cool… relatively… to spin. Considering I had been sweating like crazy even before this spin session, I was a hot mess by the time I climbed off the bike. I absolutely loved my playlist and the energy in the songs rocked my world.
By the time I left the gym I had lost 5.7 litres of water and was extremely hungry. You can probably guess what I had for breakfast.
Thank you everyone for your sweet comments on yesterday’s No-Sugar-Challenge recap post! Yesterday was the first day I was “off the challenge” but not a whole lot changed in my food choice. I definitely chewed gum… like three times throughout the day. The vegetable broth in my lentil soup had a form of sugar in it, as well the sweet potato biscuits I made with the soup had a tablespoon of brown sugar in the whole recipe. Besides that, it was really easy to make choices that reduced the added sugar in my diet!
Would you rather workout in +25 or -15? What are your least favourite workout conditions?
What did you have for breakfast this morning?!
