Dressing like a boy is easy and so much fun for me these days.
So today I thought I would try something new. Michelle got back last night at around midnight (I didn't even hear her come in as I was dead to the world) and a work colleague of hers stayed on our newly discovered sofa bed. I didn't want to disturb her this morning with breakfast etc. so I thought it would be a great opportunity to try some fasted cardio.
I have never really done this before. As most of you know – I generally wake up, have my breakfast and then get started on the day, regardless of what my plans are. I always eat before my morning workout, especially if I want to lift heavier and also if I want to just go for a run. Today I worked out on an empty stomach (also bear in mind I am a bit sick still and walk 20mins to get to work every day).
Fasted cardio – treadmill.
Jogging, some hill walking and some sprints at the end.
Roughly 35mins in total.
My legs were a bit stiff from squats yesterday so I didn't start off too well. I felt like my legs loosened up after the first mile but I really noticed the lack of energy. I felt like I had nothing in the tank at all while I was doing some incline walking and even the sprints at the end were nearly the death of me. I don’t drink coffee at all, so I really had no energy :(
Do you guys do fasted cardio at all? Do you have something small or a coffee to give you just a little bit of energy prior to starting? I was thinking about having a “strategic banana” for the next time I give this a go.
