Today and tomorrow are rest days in preparation for Saturdays 400K adventure. In addition, I began increasing complex carb intake in an attempt to build up glycogen stores. I still have some pain in the knee but I will go anyway and see how far I can go.
I completed a weight workout at the gym this morning because I was there supervising troops. The "light" workout was kicking my butt. I couldn't figure out why. It was designed to get the blood flowing a little. Then during the one arm barbell presses, I remembered I gave blood yesterday. They say you should wait 24 hrs before training. OOPS.
Well, I stopped the workout at that point and went to breakfast at the wonderful galley. The galley is a cafeteria on the base. Note the Naval terminology. This particular galley is supposed to be good. After all, it recently won a prestigious award. You have got to be kidding me! Let me tell you something about this place. The food is disgusting. The help is complacent and lackadaisical. I wouldn't hire any of them for any task.
With that said, the cost is only $2.00, my belly was full and I can assure you that in my mere 17 years as a Marine, I have certainly eaten much worse chow. You should also know that this is Marine fashion to vent even when things are adequate. Some may even argue it shows some motivation. OOHRAH!
