I skipped Monday's P90X workout (chest/back) because Ryan was out of town and I couldn't do the pull-ups on my own. I did do the ab workout though. On Tuesday I skipped plyometrics since Ryan took the DVD with him to Salt Lake City, Utah. Instead of just sitting on the couch and enjoying my skip day I ran for cheeseburgers, literally.
I had made plans with Chris to eat $1 burgers at Dexter's and knew when he dropped me off at home at 5:30pm that he was starving. "Hurry," was all he said to me as I got out of the car, and hurry I did. After taking Honey for her usual walk I quickly changed into some exercise gear and bounded down the elevator to the 7th floor. There was no way that I was running outside around the lake in this heat. I knew the pressure was on to finish a fast work out so I ran my little butt off. I managed to run 2.1 miles in 20 minutes (1 minute warm-up included). This was 2 minutes less time than Monday but 0.1 miles more. Clearly I was running with more of a purpose on Tuesday.
I headed back upstairs to shower and was out the door by 6:22pm. The walk to Dexter's took 12 minutes (yes I timed it) but it was totally worth it. I ordered 2 1/4 pound burgers, 1 with blue cheese and bacon and the other with cheddar and bacon. There were 4 of us at the table and we split 2 large bowls of golden french fries. I couldn't pass up on the $2 off imported bottled beer and enjoyed 2 Amstel Lights with my budget burgers. All-in-all a good night was had.
