I took a red-eye home last night and ended up sitting next to a really nice, interesting man- who kept his personal DVD player running most of the night. I’d left my trusty sleep mask in my suitcase in the overhead and I was sitting by the window so luckily I had a hoodie to drape over my head and block the flashes of light. My back pillow kept me comfortable but my earphones ran out of batteries and I had too much pressure built up in my head to wear earplugs for any period of time. Needless to say, I didn’t get much sleep! When I landed in L.A. I picked out an Odwalla Superfood, one of the few great offerings of most airports. I was really craving a bacon and egg croissant but I wasn’t about to pay $10 for it and I didn’t want to do that to my stomach after my healthy days on the island. I just looked up nutritional value of a croissant and it’s pretty horrifying!
I was lucky to have nap time today and passed out for three hours. When I awoke, the sun was actually shining and I decided to get on my bike. Yesterday’s Wildflower schedule was supposed to be a bike so I did it today instead. I followed my ride with a snack, shower then yoga. That’s three days in a row now and my flexibility coming back amazingly fast! You can check out my sequence or create your own here.
48 minutes- to the beach, back up to the top of the park, to the market, home with roasted chicken and big bottle of cranberry juice (not a brilliant idea!)
8.8 miles, average speed 10.9 mph
6 x 30 sprints, in and out of the seat
magsteps– my feet were happy to slip into my crocs lined with magsteps once home
greenzymes– immediately after I walked in the door, my green powder came out
