Day #5: Started the day by riding my bike to Walmart to get a few things for the Y. Walmart is 3 miles from me, and the Y is 2.6 miles from Walmart, so that's 5.6 miles of riding before I got there. I picked up a larger backpack so I can start bringing extra clothes and whatnot along with some dedicated sweat towels and a water bottle.
Once I got to the Y I went 40 minutes on the bike in 20 minute intervals taking a minute inbetween to have a drink. In total I did three 40 minute rides like that with time on the machines inbetween.
I've found the three machines I want to focus on for awhile. The back machine I've been using, the oblique machine that you sit on and swing side to side with your lower half, and an ab crunch machine that you sit on with your arms up over a bar like you were sitting at a bar and push down to crunch your abs.
I'm doing 100 reps on the machines with what's probably a pretty low weight, though I have to push myself to get the last 20 done. On the oblique machine, since it has adjustable positions that can have you swinging either way, I do 20 rep increments coming from each side 3 times for each side.
I'm actually tired after getting home and taking a shower today. Not sore like I was on day 3, but tired. I didn't eat anything today before going to the Y, when I got there I got a SOBE water since I hadn't had a chance to wash my new water bottle out yet and other than that I stuck with water until I left. I had two small chili dogs when I got home.
The produce shop I had across the street from me closed down recently, so I'm going to have to figure out a way to work around that. There is a Mexican store about a block down that I haven't been in, but if I remember right these types of stores usually have all sorts of good stuff.
