Pre-Work Out Drink & Running



When I woke up this morning I felt like I hadn't slept at all. I may have gotten 5 hours of sleep if that. I don't know why I can't sleep these days. Oh yeah, I take naps during the day. Nap(S) plural. I seriously need to stop that. 

My day started at 6am with the usual, eggs & green tea. At 9 am I headed to the gym for my workout. I don't always use a pre-work out drink but I needed the extra boost this morning. Currently I'm using Muscle Pharm Assualt. It did what I needed it to do. I was at the gym knocking out reps with no problems. Today was shoulder day, and I know for a fact they will be sore tomorrow! 

*Tip: Add a little bit of ice to MP Assualt, it helps take away the chalky taste. The colder water you use, the better it tastes.


After my workout at the gym I went on a 3 mile run with a friend. She was kind enough to stop every few minutes with me. I'm trying to get back into running but these things take time. My legs are fine when I run but I am having a hard time breathing. I'll get use to it eventually. We had a good run. Thank goodness for no rain, although we did run against the wind for about a mile.
