Starch Solution, Years Past: Food & Exercise Diaries

Day 7 of Higher Carb Starch Solution: April 20th

Day 7/28

My legs are pretty sore today from yesterday’s squats! Usually once I get back into a regular lifting routine like I have been lately, I don’t get sore anymore…  although I did do 6 sets of squats yesterday, so I guess it makes sense that I’d still get sore from the higher volume. Plus I had a bit of insomnia and only got 8 instead of my usual 9 hours of sleep, so maybe that has something to do with it. (One of my interests for graduate school is sleep neuroscience and I’ve taken classes on how important it is for pretty much all of your functions, so I’m a stickler for getting 9 hours a night!)

Despite the soreness in my quads, I went for my run anyway. 🙂
