Post-Marathon Recovery - Day 4

Yesterday was a pretty lazy day. I really felt the urge to get out of the house and go slog on the treadmill this afternoon at Ghetto Renew, but I did not.

I want to recover properly for my body and ability.

I focusing on re-hydrating yesterday. I consumed about 2 Nalgene bottles of water. I also had 2 mugs of green & white tea and a cup of skim milk. I also had a glass of Chardonnay with the BF. 

I had an hour massage yesterday. My therapist was ok. I told her to not dig in anywhere and focus on relaxing me and help move the lactic acid out of my muscles. She could have worked my quads a little more but I do have another massaged booked for next week at somewhere else. Plus, I am REALLY picky when it comes to my massages. 

My body feels pretty good on day 4 post marathon. The knot in my shoulder has relaxed. (Bio-freeze has never worked so well for me before!) There is very little muscle soreness here and there, but I am not as stiff and in pain like I thought I would have been following the marathon.

I have been taking multi-vitamins to help replace what is missing this week.

I will be going back to work tonight after a whole week off. I have a week worth of work to catch up on! I will be walking a ton tonight and tomorrow I will ease into a short 1 or 2 mile run.

I think I am good on my carbs in my diet. I actually want to eat a steak or some meat or something carnivorous and paleo. But I  had a ton of veggies yesterday. Salad stuff, broccoli with hummus, potatoes and canned corn.

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
