Day 15 – The Aftermath

August 2, 2010

You may have noticed I didn’t post for three days. I have a good reason for that – two, actually. As predicted, the weekend was a complete lapse of the paleo exercise lifestyle.

Friday kicked off the festivities with an evening of Texas Hold ‘Em poker – if starting play after 8:00 and not wrapping up until after 2:00 can be called an evening. It was a good time with friends, even if I was at the table that was actually playing cards as opposed to the table that was lucky to get two hands in before the blinds went up. We skipped a few blind raises to make up for the fact that we played about 80 more hands than they did.

Saturday brought a friend’s annual megaparty, complete with live music and people being shoved into a pool. That’s about as clear a memory as I have of the whole night, save that my wife and I didn’t get home until about 9:00 am Sunday.

I paid for the time off today, though. Just a bit of a drop in performance…ah well. I was linked to an amusing little page called ZombieFit today, which looks like it might just fit the bill for some of my skill day workouts. After all, what could be better than combining parkour ninja training with the threat of an impending apocalypse of ravenous undead?

Breakfast: 2 hard-boiled eggs, 3 strips nitrite-free bacon, small glass of coconut milk, handful of blueberries, 3 fish oil caps.

Pre-Workout: Row 500m, shoulder mobility warmup, then attempted Recon Ron Step 7 on pullups and dips. FAIL. Only got 3, 3, 2, 2, 2. I’ll get ’em back, though.

Lunch: Half a pound of grass-fed ground beef, massive salad, handful of sesame seeds, 3 fish oil caps, 2000 iU vitamin D3.

Afternoon Snack: Half a pound of grass-fed ground beef, massive salad, handful of almonds, 3 fish oil caps, 2000 iU vitamin D3.

Workout: Row 500m, one round of the CrossFit warmup, deadlift warmup, deadlift 195#x3, 220#x3, 245# x 4, 2 rounds of 5 glute-ham raises and max hold plank, 1 round of 5 glute-ham raises and max knees-to-elbows (11).

PWO Meal: Baked sweet potato fries, 4 strips nitrite-free bacon, 1 hard-boiled egg, small glass of coconut milk.

Dinner: Tilapia filet, green beans, handful of pecans, 3 fish oil caps, 1000 iU vitamin D3.
