cardio craze

The past 2 days have been filled with cardiovascular exercise.  Since we had done the back/chest work out on sunday night, monday was a free day from p90x.  I headed down to our gym and cycled for 32 minutes (11.62 miles) then did an easy 10 minutes on the elliptical for 0.75 miles.  Not a bad way to spend 42 minutes of the day.

Today I did a lot more walking than normal.  After using MapMyRun I was able to figure out approximately how many miles I walked today.  I had a dentist appointment today and walked to and from there from my apartment.  Total miles walked on that journey was 0.6 miles and a good bill of health for my toothers.

Once I got home I caught up with Katie for a bit and then headed down to the gym to run a couple of miles on the treadmill.

  • 30 second warm up at 4.0
  • 6.0-7.2 RPE for 0.30-18:30 minutes
  • 30 second cool down at 4.0
  • 2.03 miles in 19 minutes
I rushed back home and showered up before meeting Chris at Cityfish for free oyster night.  I ate way too many raw oysters (didn't reach 2 dozen this time) and then ordered some fish tacos off their happy hour menu.  Delicious meal!  

The walk to and from Cityfish totaled approximately 1.2 miles.  It was an over 3.5 mile day ... 

Ever wonder how many calories were in raw oysters?  According to an article from ehow there are 243 calories in one half dozen raw oysters. I'm pretty sure I ate at least a dozen, probably closer to 15.  There goes having a low calorie meal tonight.
