Taking Full Advantage

Your present circumstances don't determine where you can go; they merely
determine where you start. ~Nido Qubein

Stay serious about these. Use them wisely and enjoy! Well, since I am 45 years young today, the plan was to enjoy the ultimate 21-15-9 WOD, however, my body was not on board and I was due for this change of enjoyment.

So ...
Active Recovery Day
Aerobic Restoration - SEALFIT style ;)
* In the swim category, I took 30 minutes treading water.

NOTE ABOUT ACTIVE RECOVERY – The activity selected must be restorative for you. It can also be an opportunity to work on a skill (like swimming or rowing), but the effort expended should leave you feeling energized at the end of the session, not depleted. I would also always prefer to see active recovery done as soon after rising as possible on the active recovery days. It’s an opportunity to start some blood flowing and aid your recovery.

Mobility and Maintenance
* Went Extended SMR today over Mobility WOD.

Inflammation Maintenance
* Hmmm, this one was tough on the schedule. Just didn't build in time for therapy. So, I went with Nitric Balance today.
Nitric Oxide (NO) has both positive and negative influences on physiological systems. The outcomes of NO activity are dependent upon which of the three nitric oxide enzymes or synthases are expressed. The three Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS) isomers are Neuronal NOS (nNOS), inducible NOS (iNOS), and Endothelial NOS (eNOS). nNOS is used to optimize neuronal synapases. iNOS activity promotes inflammation and produces harmful free radical actions which promote inflammation, tissue destruction, autoimmune mechanisms. eNOS activity produces dilation of blood vessels, glucose uptake, and activation of muscle mitochondria energy utilization to help in cell function and recovery. in summary, nNOS and eNOS have actions that support healing and recovery ' and iNOS activity promotes actions that produce tissue destruction, inflammation, and autoimmunity.

Nutrition Preparation
* Whole30 program start, August 2nd, post bday celebration glass of wine with hubby.

Mental Restoration
* Family dinner!
