Took the day off from weights and just did some cardio. I decided to run since I had not in a couple of weeks. Started off with a 2 minute walk then for 3 minutes jogged on 6.5 and bumped it up to 8.0 till i reached 22 minutes. For the next 8 minutes I made it up to 10.5 and finished with 3.85 miles in 30 minutes. After that I slowed it down to 3.5 and put it on incline of 14.0 and walked for 10 minutes. Give this treadmill workout a try next time you do your cardio. You don't necessarily have to do the same speeds but really push yourself past a point that you thought you couldn't reach for the last 5 minutes. It should be a sprint or close to by the time you hit 30 minutes!

If you have been following everything I've been doing for the past few days you will see that I have been feeling very lethargic and drained and unable to get a pump until yesterday. This being said I've decided to make some more changes to my diet that I believe will make me feel A LOT better and allow me to train hard, heavy and intense every single workout which I feel is the most IMPORTANT thing to do. Bottom line is listen to your BODY. You will see the changes in 2/10's food log.
