I haven't done yoga since the first week i was here, so things were a little tight, to say the least. Flexibility is an area that I have neglected, as I look back. Especially when it comes to recovery, this is so important yet so easy to overlook. I think for this next 6 weeks I'm going to try to use one of my rest days each week to do yoga, and dedicate at least 15 minutes at the end of every session to certain static relaxation stretches.
I've also decided to use this week as an experimental food journal to track exactly what I'm eating, so I apologize if this is annoying.
Meal 1: smoothie (1 banana, scoop of peanut butter, protein powder, whole milk)
Meal 2: breakfast scramble (1 potato, 1 bell pepper, 1/2 onion, handful spinach, 4 eggs, pepper cheese)
Meal 3: My favorite sandwich shop (dark whole grain bread, sliced chicken, tomatos, cucumber, aged cheese, pesto, onion)
Meal 4: Greek yogurt and trail mix (sunflower seeds, walnuts, almonds, cranberries)
Meal 5: 20 g Salmon w/ skin, green lentils, raw broccoli
Meal 6: smoothie (1 banana, scoop of peanut butter, protein powder, water)
On the way out to grab a beer or two, so I have to include those as well. We'll see what I actually put down.
Hopefully I won't be eating many of these...
