Reflections: today I could barely get out of bed without wincing. My legs were dead – not sore, or just achy, but just plain dead. I did I bit of stretching right before going for coffee. Still, I walked funny all day, screaming every time I had to sit down or stand up. Had I not planned for an epic Sunday workout, I would have left time do its thing, but I needed to feel somewhat fresh for tomorrow’s 2+ hours endurance workout. I remembered I had a bag of epsom salts in the closet, so I soaked in the tub with the salts for 16 minutes.

Sleep: good.

OVERALL: the end of the Whole30 is just 10 days away. The diet has been going very well, but I will need a serious break from all of the exercise volume soon.
