21 Dec Knowledge is Power: Fitness Stuff to Read 12/21/15
If any of you follow me on SnapChat, you know I wake up at 5:05AM every day, jam out in my car to electronic dance music, and attend the occasional rave.
Yes, rave. Everybody gasp and jump to conclusions about light shows, weird substances, and people who dress up like astronauts.
This Saturday, I went to my first one in a while, but it was surprisingly tame. Tame meaning, we went to bed at 5:00AM instead of 6:00AM, and discovered that red bulls do make you have wings. Not to mention, a butt load of energy that carries onto the next day.
After just four hours of sleep and residual effects of red bull, I was in full on recovery mode. But that’s not to say I was feeling completely like an old hag or ogre. By noon, I was ready to begin the day with a walk in nature and some reading. Given the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I had a LOTTTTTT of reading to catch up for you guys.
Raves, glow sticks, and lack of sleep aside, let’s get into today’s list:
