Hi C.O. Thanks! It's fun going back and reading through it.
John, you made me laugh.

Tuesday, 1/31 yay I logged every day so far this year!

Took the day off the bike and foam rollered, stretched, yin yogad, and ran. Still a bump where my quad hurts. But I ran anyways, I gave myself checkpoints along the way to consciously scan my legs and notice what was going on. I didn't want to tweak my other leg by favoring the owie one. Sure enough, it started, so I slowed down a bit and concentrated on form.

4 mile run

coffee
run
protein, tangerine
broccoli, rice, 2 lunabars
pretzels wrapped in snow pea pods
2 dates
broccoli, 2 veg patties
chia/protein w/ dates chopped in

What do you think of yin yoga? It sounds intriguing, I've never been to a class though. That's where you hold the poses for a really long time, right?

Yin yoga is love! It feels really good to me, like it's just what my body needs. It feels very healing and restorative.

2/1

30 mile
that pesky quad thing was burning, and crampy. i rode it through though, for better or worse. other than that i felt really strong. i tried to remember to ride in the small ring, which was fun!

It actually wasn't to bad today. It must be getting better. I think this happened to me once after after a century. My adductor, same leg, cramped hard, and it hurt like hell and made a lump for about a week after.

2/2
Such a gorgeous day. I had to ride, and I wanted some challenge, but I didnt want to go too hard. Plus tomorrow might be a rest day, depending on weekend plans that aren't quite planned out yet. But maybe not. So I didn't want to go too crazy cuz I could do that tomorrow. Plus I kind of ran out of time cuz of work. So I just did hill repeats for about an hour.

coffee
oatmeal, rasins, hemp
ride
tofu, celery mustard, yeast
larabar
larabar
commute
3 grape leaves, 2 veg patties, mixed veggies, yeast
chia/protein/raisin pudding with a lot of raisins. way too many raisins. they were so good though! maybe i'm anemic haha

Aw, thanks, C.O.! I hope so! I love how sparks can catch fire like that. I hope it happens a lot!

Lobster have you thought about doing freelance editing? You're hot shit. Celery mustard would be delicious. Unfortunately, that was a typo, not even and oxford comma typo.

2/3

2 hour ride

quad still not right. kind of ran out of time again too. windy as fuck out there today. I kept at about 32 mph consistently in the flats with a tailwind. ride took me over a couple hills, one with a headwind. Trying to remember to drink more water during the day which is hard to do before i ride because i hate stopping to piddle, especially if i have bibs on!

1/2c dry oatmeal, protein, stevia, 19 raisins
ride
tbs of hammer gel to see if it went alcoholic. it did not
7 papadums
6 potato chips, cashews
maybe some dinner in a bit

Yeah it sounds good. It would be easy to make some kind of yummy mustard out of maybe, a nice nutty dark ale and some celery salt.

2/4

4 mile run

I had to will myself through this. Not one of my best days, although towards the end of the run I gathered more energy and felt better and ran faster more comfortably. Part of my issue was I was gonna go fasted, but then my feet froze and got numb, which meant I had to wait for them to thaw out, which meant I got hungry, which of course meant I needed to eat some crappy tortilla chips and a muffin. I never eat like that before training and it made me feel like shit. Also I was tired. I think I'll make tomorrow a rest day!

We can be millionaires - celery mustard! With our faces on the jar.

Good for you for toughing out the run. Enjoy your rest day!

Yeah I was pretty happy with myself about that!

2/5

REST DAY yipee i really needed it but it felt awkward as expected. Spent a long time working in the cold basement on bikes, then riding in the cold on the back of a motorcycle, then standing around in the cold. I ate a lot of carbs. During the game I ate a really yummy pizza with daiya on it, daiya always makes me feel like i've guzzled ocean water. So one of the great things about today is I learned that two pieces of daiya pizza is way too much daiya! There were a lot of other great things about today too. :D

im hijacking here a bit but i do yin yoga as well. i don't love it like viva does. but it is excellent for working on connective tissues and joints instead of just muscle flexibility if you can handle the torture of it! love you viva!

2/7

fun ride ~ 1 3/4 hours hills and rollers

weird day. it was way colder than i thought it would be, than it was supposed to be. i got bonkish even though i ate before i went out. i didn't want to eat while i was out because it would make me colder, so i just stopped and then powered through it. when i came back i put real live actual sugar in my oatmeal. new plan if this should happen again is that i go straight for gel or cliff block, which i will always have with me, and i usually do just in case, because i dont think gel would make me colder like a larabar would.

coffee
oatmeal/raisins/hemp, 4 saltines
ride
oatmeal/apple/rice-gemma/sugar
3 papadums
green beans, cabbage/tofu/yeast
chia/protein/raisins/soymilk
