Though I was tired last night, I thought my muscles were recovering nicely. I noticed very little soreness and my legs weren’t as tight as I thought they would be. My falsely optimistic self decided that stretching was unnecessary. I deluded myself into thinking that I would be fine–no recovery necessary. I conveniently “forgot” that Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness existed.
Well, I found out this morning that it does.
Ok, its not terrible but I certainly was feeling it. Tight hamstrings, sore quads and an especially sore upper body (did I mention I’m NOT a swimmer!)…boo. I have some MAJOR stretching and foam-rolling to do!
Ok here’s the food:
I rarely have cereal and milk. I usually have my cereal with greek yogurt, but when I opened my tub of Chobani this morning, it was kinda yellow looking so I tossed it and settled for 2nd best.
Dinner was a 3 egg white quesadilla with mexican cheese and onions, a Spinach salad with a baby cucumber, salsa on the side! I also threw some leftover chicken on my salad because I needed something more. The eggs were so good though! We had to buy fresh eggs because I made Tiramisu this weekend and it has raw eggs in it. These are organic, Free-Range eggs and they’re beautiful! Don’t worry, though, the Tiramisu only had egg yolks so these were the left-over whites. I wouldn’t waste these babies!
1.) What do you do for recovery? I need some good tips!
2.) What should I do with the rest of my eggs? Like I said…no wasting!
