your numbers look good to me!

I'm always jealous of people who actually are coordinated enough to walk backwards on a treadmill.

Yay Mary, nice to see you here!

1/26
DOMS diminished alot in quads although knotty. Glutes/hams still so sore.

coffee
2x oatmeal, raisins, hemp
2 hour ride
tofu, celery, yeast, ~1.5 tsp olive oil
popcorn ~1.5 tsp olive oil
commute+coffee
2 veg patties, mixed veg, fake salami
grapeleaves, raw lavender chocolate

at this point it was late, i was not tired, i was pretty sad about work situation, and i was still wanting food. i think i could call it hungry, but i'm not sure. i needed to get some work done and i couldn't focus. i looked at my chia/protein stuff and it just looked so gross and disgusting. i had been avoiding the leftover cookie dough in the fridge all week, it wasn't appealing at all. i felt like i needed carbs though so i ate it. it hit the spot and let me settle down, but now it's wearing off fast and i think i should have probably nuked some frozen peaches. if i had to go back and be in that moment again, i think i would be able to say honestly it's not worth it.

Do you ever use a foam roller on your legs? I know I should, but I rarely do anymore. I just never think of it.

Raw lavender chocolate sounds right up my alley.

I would probably benefit from foam rolling, but i never do it. I do a lot of stretching and leg movements to keep things ... i guess supple is the right word. Yes. I am supple. I could be suppler.

Yeah that chocolate wasn't as good as I thought it would be. Probably because I was craving carbs, and it was pretty low carb. I did just eat a wheat free chocolate chip cookie though and it was utterly magnificent.

1/28

nice long ride, was rly looking forward to it. i think i tore one of my quads out in the middle of nowhere, and i wasn't sure what happened, i'm still not. so i turned around after a while and i figured out it wasnt getting better. i'll see how i feel tomorrow. i'm avoiding ibu. but idk if that's the right thing to do. i just want to know if it gets worse or whatever. so the good thing about it is that i did hit my goals for training hours this week, even though i'm not gonna ride tomorrow. that could be because it took me so long to get back home and the training was worth shit. but whatever. the other silver lining is that next week is a rest week so i should be taking it easy anyways. i did want to weight train some more, i will decide on that tomorrow night.

Healing vibes wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
Please take the time to rest and heal.
Take 800 ibu 2x daily for at least a few days, regardless if it feels better.

The foam roller has saved me. Really helped me with my hamstring pull. I use it all the time after training.

Thanks guys. John , I debated for a long time whether or not to take any ibu. I don't know if I made the right decision but for today I decided against it so I could feel exactly what it's doing. I figured, since I rode home a ways on it yesterday, I needed to feel what's up. Also, because I mostly pedaled with one leg on the way back, I wanted to see what was up with my other side. I know I missed the initial window to hit it hard with anti inflammatory, but I might start that therapeutic dose if its raining tomorrow, it's not better, and I decide not to ride. The plan today was to swim, but I didn't want to kick with it. It's my vastus lateral, and it doesn't like kicking or pressure right now. I'm icing right now.

Paige! It's funny you should mention the foam roller. I actually buckled down and got one of my own today, thanks to Lobster and some in-town friends! You must be psychic! It won't help this particular thing, but it will help in the future. I know I should foam roller more often. Maybe if I did this wouldnt have happened.

I woke up this morning and it hurt before i got out of bed. It's actually better now.

1/29

20 minutes tread walk
3x3x20 supersets of lats and tris plus other randoms like a little seated rowing
20 minutes tread walk 5 mins backward hurt so i did the rest forward.

I'm glad this happened at the beginning of a rest week, but it's still super depressing anyways. I think it will be better in a couple days on its own. It doesn't matter what I think. It will be better.

1/30

the sun was out this morning, so i decided to try riding. my leg was ok for about 15 miles. it hurt after that. the swelling is down. so i think it's just a minor tear, no big deal, i just have to take it easy.

30 miles
