I wanted to skip a workout today, but forced myself to keep focus. I did one hour of cardio on the stepper machine, hoping to be back to running next time. Pushing it to one hour was difficult, but my legs held up fine. I did a few minutes of two steps per minute, and then ramped up to do a squating while bending faster paced burst. Bending over like that is ment to simulate some of the obsticles I will face on the course. This was pretty tough, but cooling down to my regular pace did help. I can now see how people are able to do longer workouts, as they aren't going full board the whole time. Afterward, I did twenty minutes of streching, to be sure that I don't spend two or more days recovering. Then I had my after workout nutrition, and went on with my day. I did have a ton of energy and was very active for the rest of the day, so I see why people workout first thing in the morning.
