Something that I cannot figure out: my legs have been so sore lately! And yet I’ve been doing almost zero lower-body cardio (just swimming).
I can’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 you’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 it’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 I’d share this lovely Slam Poetry video, which several people have forwarded to me. Isn’t she talented and inspiring? So well-spoken!
And that, my friends, is the CaitlinHTP YouTube of the week. Look, it didn’t feature a cute puppy or a little kitty! It was actually an intellectual video. Aren’t you proud?
Oh, wait. You WANT cute kitties and puppies? You want to giggle mindlessly at the computer?!
Here you go!
