After work today I needed to blow off some steam (it wasn’t a bad day, just busy). So I threw myself a Friday night quarantine cycling dance party! I blasted my music and rocked out on the bike with some mini dance sessions between my bike and strength intervals. I knew I wanted a longer workout today to clear my head so I had ~8g of carbs to make sure I could power through. I broke the bike up into intervals to give my BGs a chance to rebound before going low each time. You can see the wavy (but still in tight range) line on my CGM from this strategy. I added in some abs and shoulders with my dancing breaks for an extra challenge today. I ended up with 30 miles total on the bike* which could count for my long ride/run for the week but I may do a mid to long run this weekend anyway, depending on how my legs are feeling.
Happy Friday Everyone!
*It’s pretty crazy inside my head so it takes a long time to decompress and clear it. Really, a lot of my workouts are more for my mind than my body.
