January 20

Workout this morning was not terrible, but a little disappointing after Tuesday’s stellar workout. Several things I can attribute that to. Yesterday my hamstring started tightening up a bit (maybe too much coffee . . . not sure). It gave me a little bit of trouble about midway through, so I had to stop and stretch it out. The second old man pain was my left shoulder, which for whatever reason is a little achy. But, the main problem I had was just tiring out about 2/3 way through. I have no doubt that was due to the idiotic choice this morning to do a grain cereal for breakfast instead of a carb based as usual. I think my body was too busy trying to digest that instead of giving me energy. I will definitely stick to my juice or fruit breakfasts on workout days for the rest of the cut.
