What is your max out point with workouts? I don’t mean how fast you can run or how much you can bench press – I mean, at what point do you emotionally max out? My max out time for a treadmill is 3.0 miles… maybe 4.0. If I’m running outdoors, I can go forever (well… you know what I mean). I just get so antsy inside. On the elliptical, I’m done at 30 minutes. In the pool, if it’s set up for the short course, I start to get antsy by 1000 meters if I’m lucky.

Today, I hit my emotional max out point in the pool at 0.5 mile. I had my swim buddy with me – DadHTP – but we’re both trying to work back up to longer distances…. I just felt spent too soon.
Really, really into Rice Chex lately. With blueberries and almonds.
Ready, set, Friday!
Anything after 40minutes – on a treadmill or in a pool just seems to long! I can easily take a class for an hour, but on my own 40 minutes seems to be the max.
