Day 10Sun Muscle – The result of a long outdoor volleyball tournament combined with proper nutrition, including lots of protein. πŸ™‚

Okay.. so I may not be actually gaining muscle on these days but nothing makes me feel quite as fit as playing outdoors, all day, on a hot summer day. It makes me feel as though the fat is just melting away.

Overall, it was a great day. The sun always makes it extra special for me. After volleyball, I headed straight to the gym and did a tough 15 minutes. It was a surprisingly good workout.

The tough one was tonight’s workout. It was also the first time I didn’t have access to a gym for my HIIT session.

To improvise, I decided to head out and look for a hill. At 10pm, I realized I only needed to walk as far as the business strip parking lot next door to my house. It has a pretty decent incline and I decided to sprint to the top, jog back down and repeat for the full 15 minutes. It only took 25 seconds to sprint to the top but by minute 8, I wasn’t sure I was going to make a full 15 minutes.

Well, I survived and completed the task. It was a great workout and if my legs and knees don’t feel any lingering effects, I may work that particular training into my cardio sessions more often.

We shall see!
