I think I finally feel good from having covid a month ago. I’m not quite sure if I had another illness the last week (which I might have) or if my covid was “sticky” or if I was depressed and sullen or if the weather turned better, but right now, I’m feeling like my regular self again. Maybe it will not be true this afternoon. I was nowhere close to being hospitalized, but if it indeed was the residue of covid, I’m not looking forward to being that sick every 4-6 months.
I’m trying to add more protein to my diet these days. After I train for this marathon in the fall (which is not going well due to missing a bunch of March running with shoulder pain and April due to covid), I think I’ll need to work on some strength training. I’d really like to do three things everyday – some cardio, some strength and some flexibility. I usually manage only 2/3. If I had all the time in the world, I’d add some explosiveness training (like jumping on a box – recently I tried this and omg, this is is impossible now) and some balance training. There is only so much time in the day.
I wanted to add more plant protein to my diet, so I’m adding my favorite beans – chick peas and some white beans (both of which Jeremy is not very fond of), but he made some in the instant pot from dry and now our beans are right next to each other. OMG we are so boring.
Vince sent some photos of his college life to us yesterday. He usually doesn’t do this, so it was a nice surprise. I don’t think he’d mind me sharing. It seems a lot of fun there. We texted him our bean picture as the most exciting thing of the day and he texted back – that’s fun too! lol. Not really.
