The Day After...

After a full afternoon and evening of gorging on food that no paleo-athlete would eat after my race, I caught up on some much needed sleep. This morning however, I woke up hung over from the sugar comma that I put myself in by eating a construction helmet sized sundae from Kilwin's in Boca Raton,FL (which is one of the greatest ice cream parlor's/candy stores in existence).
Once I got some caffeine in me this morning, it was off to Crossfit Delray Beach to recover from yesterday's race. To be honest with you, I felt really, really good; like I did not torture my body for over two hours the day before. I loosened up with some GHD situps and hamstring extensions, kettlebell swings, and technique oriented air squats. Once I got the blood and sweat flowing, I threw on my lifting shoes and racked some weight for overhead squats. Let me tell you something, if you don't have a pair of lifting shoes, invest in a pair and thank me later. They allow you to maintain proper technique while increasing the weight. Let's be clear though, you need to work technique with bare feet before you strap these babies on, but when you do, you'll immediately feel the difference.
I did 7x1 OHS, starting at 135# until PRing at 165#. PRing is always a great feeling, but the day after a triathlon is just icing on the cake. One month until my next race. My sights are now set on the Florida 70.3, qualifier for World's.
For tonight I gorge on my last night in beautiful Delray Beach, FL. Two of the best sets of words sets the mood for tonight: (all-you-can-eat) and (blue-crab). Can you say,"Delicious?"
