As part of the September blogging writing challenge, I will be writing posts each day based on a topic given (just like last month)!
Today’s Yesterday’s topic is to share your pre and post workout routines.
I don’t really have a routine per se. Today I have a planned spin class at 5:30. So by now (3pm) I want to make sure I’ve eaten (check), had coffee (check), and am dressed to go (check). I usually leave 45-60 minutes before class since I want to make sure I get there on time with no issues (subway) and sometimes I need to run an errand on the way so I make sure I have plenty of time.
When I get to the gym I unload my stuff into my locker, grab what I need (Polar HRM, towel, water, spin cushion), pee, wet my HRM strap, and then head to the spinning studio. I like to get in there 15-30 minutes before class (if I can) to pick a bike, make sure it isn’t rocky, set it up for my height, and warm up. Sometimes this means switching bikes a few times until I find one that works.
My post workout routine is: throw everything back in my bag, walk to the subway (or in this case today, the bus, since the subway closes at 6 on Sunday), (sometimes stop at the grocery store), walk home, flop on the sofa. Then I eat dinner and shower. Not very exciting, is it? I’ve I’ve weight trained I make sure I have a protein shake when I get home if I am not eating right away.
So there you have it. What are your pre and post workout routines?
