  • Stretching
  • 20m

Good all over stretch mixed with a little Yoga.

Cold (34) and very windy outside.  Got in my endurance run early.  Running some errands and playing catch up on the honey-do list.  Plan on spending more time stretching and foam roll tonight.

Edit: Didn't get in the the foam roll, family game night instead.  Also on a nutrition note, my wife made one of her soups tonight.  It would be way to much work attempting to put that in the nutrition log.

Nutrition note: Not willing to take the time to calculate my wife's fantastic soup!!

Day shift!  This working two day shifts in a row is cramping my style!  Got in a run on the treadmill.  Was going to suck it up and run in the hard wind and light rain but my wife was going to the gym, so I joined her!  Good workout overall.

Good day!  My wife and I went to the gym and then to the track for some intervals.  The north wind picked up and it's finally starting to feel like winter, 45 deg!!  Haha!

IMPORTANT SWIM NOTE:  This is the third time I've had to scramble to the side of the pool and rest to keep from puking!  Seems all three, at least two, times have been after coming off night shift and swimming on the way home.  I ate pizza last night at work (shame, shame) 8 hours before my swim.  I did have a few cups of coffee within one hour of swimming.

It took me a couple of years to realize I was getting motion sickness while scuba diving back in the mid to late 90's.  The only time in my life I've experienced it.  I hope this is not the same thing.
