I still feel like I’m recovering from the marathon last Sunday. Slept more, got tired more easily, and my knees are pissy. Still glad I did it. I’m told that for about two weeks I need to take it “easy” and that I’ll be prone to injury for that time period. I’ve been going light on the weights and can definitely tell I’m not where I was prior to the marathon.
Could also bee that I rowed 20,000 meters this weekend and Saturday’s WOD was “Randy” – 5 rounds of 15 reps of 55 lb snatches and 30 reps of 14 lb wall balls. On Thursday I did 3 sets of 10 at 65 lbs of power snatches (sans squat) for 650 lbs each set. Doing 5 sets of for a total of 825 lbs didn’t scare me… 75 x 55 lbs (4,125 lbs). But the wallballs. Wallballs. Doesn’t that word just sound like it should be a curse word? Classmates challenged me to go to the 14 lbs, but I didn’t think I had it in me and scaled down to 6 lbs. I was so happy to stand up after it was all done. I don’t know what’s physical and what’s mental when it comes to squatting. It doesn’t really matter, its real for me either way and wallballs may be my new favorite curse word.
I really didn’t feel like “cooking” tonight. So I made lazy chicken salad.
1 1/2 Costco cooked chicken (left the rest of the chicken for breakfast tomorrow – chicken and cheese omelet)
1 sweet onion that I let carmelize
2 green peppers & 1 red pepper & a bunch of celery (veggies!)
1 package of wholly guacamole
1 lime (juice only)
Cumin and salt.
Wrapped a big helping up in 3 leaves of romaine lettuce and called it din din. Will freeze leftovers for the rest of the week. Seriously good.
Last marathon pictures to post. I remember the couple kissing, but otherwise, I really don’t remember any of these people. My brain had turned off I think.
