Happy Thursday: Getting Things Accomplished!

Four things of note today after reading Primal Endurance by Mark Sisson:
  1.  “Studies suggest reduced muscle soreness and improved performance using compression garments.”
  2. “Post-exercise hydration is essential to ensuring that assorted recovery mechanisms work without interference from the immediate urgency of needing to rehydrate.”
  3. “The ‘athletes mindset’ of being lazy in everyday life on account of compiling an impressive workout log must be reframed to emphasize the importance of increased everyday movement to speed recovery and optimize metabolic function.”
  4. “The ‘active couch potato syndrome’ describes the actual medical phenomenon of devoted fitness enthusiasts nevertheless suffering from elevated disease factors due to predominantly sedentary lifestyle patterns.”
So today’s goals:

Crush two workouts (1 hour at the pool & 1 hour on the bike). X
