How Running Works

reticentverbiage:

1. Go running.
2. Feel like a majestic gazelle.
3. Return home, eat everything.

Alternatively,

1. Go running.
2. Everything is awful and your lungs/muscles refuse to suck it up and work better.
3. Return home, eat everything.

Holy exhaustion. The good kind.

I had a full day of law school. Got there at 8 after not sleeping too well. Did homeworkers from then till 1130. Then class from noon to 315 in the coldest room in school. My food was great today. I’m still worried about my sugars and the Victozas effect on my body. My stomach has been better just on two days of probiotics and green smoothies. I made a cherry, blueberries, raspberry, strawberry and spinach green smoothie and brought it to school. It was awesome. I’m gonna try putting a little coconut milk in tomorrow. That was before nine. Then coffee with a little bit of nonfat milk. Then my turkey sandwich. Then during class I had one of those honest warrior chia bars. During my last class I started to feel really low. My legs went numb and I had a hard time getting out of class and to my locker. My sugar was only 88 and I’m telling you always start to feel low under 90. I know everyone is different.

I slugged a siggis yogurt which was amazingly good, canceled my therapy session, and went home. When I got here I still felt low and then started to get anxious. I had a small bowl of gluten free brown rice pasta and two meat balls. I waited. Then I had a handful of chex mix and some water. Terrible acid reflux. Then I got dressed and said fuck it. If I’m gonna puke I’m gonna puke because I did burpees. And I went to crossfit. I’m really gonna try my hardest to get there three times this week, at least. I’m hoping to do four. Cause if I can do monday - Thursday at crossfit and then walks or runs on the weekend and have Friday as an off day that would be great. So that’s my new plan.

A. Warmup - row 400m
B. Stretch shoulders and hip flexor a for mobility
C. EMOTM - 12 - 1 power snatch, 1 overhead squat. These were hard for me. I couldn’t get over #15 cause my form sucked over that. So I stuck with that weight and tried to be really efficient with my movement so that when I do go up in weight my form is correct.
D. WOD: 10-8-6-4-2 burpees and #15 kettle bell swings. Finished in 5:30 flat
Cash out: hang from a bar with active shoulders. My right shoulder is still really weird so I could only do five seconds twice.

Finishing the night out with a soak. Tomorrow morning I’ll peep my food (a la throw it in a blender and make a sandwich real fast) and when the bread is gone I’m going full gluten free to see if that helps with the acid reflux.

Mmmhmmm. My view. I needed this badly. Bubble bath. Protein shake. Candles and a little huluplus. I’m beat.

30 day green smoothie challenge

I just joined this awesome 30 day challenge to have a 16 oz green smoothie every day. Every week they send out five smoothie recipes and they want you to try them out. This week seems to be a lot of cherries. Of course I signed up for this an hour ago so I haven’t gone shopping for all the stuff yet and probably won’t be able to for a while. But I have pineapple and berries, kale and spinach, in my freezer so I’ll be able to make the smoothies. I’m also going to be adding some coconut oil to them to get some good fats in!
