Day 10 - Off Day
I saw Deadpool again last night.. 32 thumbs up.
There is a part in the movie, relax no spoilers, where Wade Wilson obtains his super powers. This is always my favorite part of superhero origin stories because I so desperately want special abilities. My hope is that there is a Ragnarok exposure that turns me into a super-strengthened monster of a man. That being said, my current growing pains are making it harder to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
I want you to picture an amazing day at the beach. Now turn the heat up 50 degrees and walk across the sand with no sandles. Yeah, burns doesn't it? That is how my muscles feel all the time. Scorched. Sometimes, to pile onto the perpetual DOMS, my muscles will start contracting for absolutely no reason. I have learned to just sit back and enjoy the show. Resisting just makes it worse.
My HRV score told me it was a good day to train hard. HA! Not a chance. I did my 15 minutes of cardio, my PRI correctives, and then stuffed my face with BroBrunch. You know you have officially become a regular when you walk into a place and the staff goes "Hey! Where your Bros at?" What a great way to start a BroBrunch. I felt pretty witty with all my comebacks during the meal too. Being a lyrical gangster hasn't been very common lately. Realizing this made me think a little bit more about my HRV score. In terms of training status, it has not been very agreeable to my body's status. Mental acuity, on the other hand, has been spot on. When HRV is high, my brain cranks out more juice than Jack LaLanne.
Maybe there is something to that. I have always been told I have an artist's brain. I can't just sit down and do something. I will ponder and shelve projects over and over. Then, seemly out of nowhere, I get these crazy influxes of creativity and finish things that have plagued me for what had felt like an eternity. I wonder if high HRV will start meaning high productivity. If that's the case, I would love to keep all my big projects for high HRV days. That would be sweet.
Tomorrow will be a light day. I am hoping for another high HRV score to put this productivity theory to the test.
Thought of the Day:
My imaginary friend has a real friend.
