Ship’s Log–August 15th


Thing 1 and I decided to postpone our morning run. My knee was feeling off, with a slight twinge if I moved it wrong, so giving it a rest after two days of running seemed wise. I did balance it out by going to back-to-back classes at the dojo. The first one, 45 minutes of Brazilian jujitsu, was fairly mild, and we focused more on learning techniques than working out. The MMA class that followed was a little more intense and feature a decent amount of pad work and sparring.

My food for the day was alright, I guess. I certainly kept the bread products to a minimum. My afternoon meal could have been a little better organized than the haphazard assortment I wound up eating…it looks like I hit some sort of health food party buffet, doesn’t it? I’m still working the kinks out of the four-meals-a-say concept.
