Add Some Fun To Your Workouts

I know we work out to be healthy, but do you ever try to visit some "greasy spoon" or "coffee bar" after a run or bike ride?

This post from the Shut Up and Run blog helps remind us to participate in this exercise on occasion. Certainly all of us know of a great breakfast or lunch joint where literally no healthy options exist. This is the kind of place I'm talking about.

Personally, I love stopping in Adel, Iowa along the bike trail for a bit of breakfast. Heading there and back is perfect for a nice 30 to 40-mile bike ride that features breakfast in between. The biscuits and gravy cannot be beat at The Waveland in Des Moines. With locations in the city or way out west, you have two options for a hearty meal during or after a run or bike ride.

So take some time to enjoy a good meal along with your run or bike ride. You burn off quite a few carbs and calories, so why not imbibe in some afterward.
