Cowboys, Falcons, And Sugar

My Dallas Cowboys lost on Saturday so I spent my Sunday workout watching the Falcons play the Vikings.  I was cheering for the Vikings so the Falcons wouldn’t hog a playoff spot.   If the Vikings were victorious they would have an automatic birth by winning their division.  The Boys need all the help they can get.  I am desperate for a Wild Card birth.

I began with 30 minutes on the trainer trying to go hard enough to make the legs sore.  I was successful but maybe too successful.  After a brief rest I started on the treadmill.  One mile into it I began to feel hypoglycemic and wanted to stop.  Watching the game was the only thing that kept me going.  A good distraction technique.

At the end of mile 3 I stopped and immediately sought out some sugar.  It took me a good 2 hours to recover. 

The workout was good but the outcome of the game was not.  Now the Cowboys must beat the Eagles next Sunday to make it into the playoffs.  My fingers are crossed.
