What a busy weekend. Regionals was on one coast Saturday and we visited family on the other coast Sunday. Our visit went late last night and we only got 2.5 hours of sleep before heading to CrossFit early this morning.
I managed enough energy for the WOD but I was exhausted and feeling off afterward. I decided to skip my run and yoga. At least I can still eat well!
Here and there I’ve been mentioning “vegan Paleo.” I know, I know. Vegan and Paleo are thought to be opposites- but in more ways then one they’re similar. Minus the huge meat factor, of course.
Paleo is all about eating close to the earth and eating lots of high nutrition foods in place of lower nutrition foods.
I ate close to this vegan Paleo idea I have leading up to the 50k and the 5k a few weeks ago and ended up feeling great and getting awesome PR’s. It clicked with my body- faster recovery time, stronger during workouts and I resisted getting sick when everyone around me was calling off work.
I’m reading “The Paleo Solution” and exploring what foods I need and why, so I’m waiting before I say too much.
Overall I’m eating lots of fresh greens, veggies and fruits, lots of protein, nuts, seeds, little beans and minimal grains or sugars.

How do you handle “off” days?
