Sat/Sun 11/12 Feb 2012

Well, that cold got worse!

On Saturday, I led a 2-hour rec league session. As I was leading, it wasn't really much in the way of exercise. Though I was on skates, I was mostly demonstrating stuff and slowly skating around watching people.

On Sunday I felt hideous! Sinus pressure was really bad and gave me a headache that wouldn't budge. So I spent the whole day in bed and skipped my usual practice. So no exercise for me.

I can't remember everything I ate, but pancakes, tofu scramble with black beans, and leftover spaghetti were in the mix.

Still feeling a bit ill, but I don't have the headache like yesterday so I am at work and am determined to go to the DSA session tonight.

I've let my log slip for a couple of days, but I'm going to try to get back on it!

I forgot to mention that we had a travel team selection a couple of weeks ago, and I am still on the A team. And it seems I'm currently assessed to be in the top 14. So far so good, though I definitely know that I'm on the border so I need to keep improving!

Exercise
none--rest day

Food
Breakfast: choc chip mini weetabix, tea
Lunch: 'schnitzel' on bagel
Dinner: bunch of snacky things, mince/veg pie, pecan squares

Notes
In the evening we had a team bonding get-together, which was a pot luck. I ate a bunch of crisps and bread and hummus to start. For the mains and dessert, the only vegan things there were the dishes I made, which were a pie with vegetables and mince and some pecan squares.

Tues 21 Feb 2012

Exercise
cycled to work to practice to home
2-hour derby practice

Food
Breakfast: smoothie
Snack: cocoa mint nakd bar, tea
Lunch: loads of food (buffet)
Snack: half a brownie, tea
Dinner: falafel wrap
Post-practice/cycle: protein shake, 'schnitzel'

Notes
Off-skates training last night was pretty tough and my legs are feeling pretty tired, but I'm still cycling and skating! Haven't lifted weights for a while outside of the off-skates (DSA) training, and we're all mostly going over form there so nothing heavy yet. I hope to lift weights tomorrow night, but my partner won't be working so I'll have to do things I don't need a spotter for.

This weekend is another two-game weekend. First one (Saturday) is a public bout of my home team against another home team. It's going to be a tough one. Sunday is a closed door bout of our A travel team against a Scottish team.

I currently have a lingering cough that is making me feel less than 100%, but I'm not too bad.

One of these days I'll post some current pictures.
