I shook things up a bit this morning and ate a small breakfast of 2 cups watermelon diced, 1 banana, and 2 cups of water.  I waited about an hour, stretched, and then went out to do the A.M. portion of my cardio routine.

I threw a few curve balls in my running routine that must have caught my heart off guard.  I alternated between jogging and sprinting, and walking and sprinting.  My heart rate peaked at about 175 beats per minute, but I was around 135-155 for most of the run.

The run definitely went well.  My shins hurts, my ankles are a bit swollen, and my calves feel like I was carrying an elephant on my back.  But otherwise I feel great.  My energy is way up post-run- and that is worth the pain.

I can honestly say that I am looking forward to tonight’s cardio session.

Post-run: When I got home I had another cup of watermelon and a small bowl of cheerios with 3 cups of water and my multivitamin.

I am thinking of sticking with an all fruit breakfast on cardio days.
