Something that I cannot figure out: my legs have been so sore lately! And yet Iâ€™ve been doing almost zero lower-body cardio (just swimming).
I canâ€™t imagine how swimming would make my thighs sore because I try really hard not to kick too much. Another triathlete once told me to use your upper body more during swims because youâ€™ll need your legs for the bike and cycle, so I only do a very, very slow kick, stroke, stroke, kick, stroke, stroke, kick. Maybe itâ€™s just the new and different motion? Who knows!
That being said, my arms AND legs were sore this morning so I took today off as a surprise rest day (my favorite). Instead, James and I went on a lovely long walk around the neighborhood. Spring is just so delightful in Charlotte.
Post-walk breakfast was leftover Spinach Quiche Cornbread and roasted potatoes with ketchup.
Hint: if you wrap the quiche in a wet paper towel prior to microwaving, it retains more of its moisture!
And lunch was eaten at the clinic as the Husband saw patients.
Just a mix of goodness!
- Brown rice
- Pinto beans
- Honey mustard dressing
I thought Iâ€™d share this lovely Slam Poetry video, which several people have forwarded to me. Isnâ€™t she talented and inspiring? So well-spoken!
And that, my friends, is the CaitlinHTP YouTube of the week. Look, it didnâ€™t feature a cute puppy or a little kitty! It was actually an intellectual video. Arenâ€™t you proud?
Oh, wait. You WANT cute kitties and puppies? You want to giggle mindlessly at the computer?!
Here you go!
