Woke up and the DOMs had definitely kicked in, really sore traps and upper back, the familiarity of the pain is comforting in a strange way as I know that my body is adapting. I know over the coming weeks as I get back into an exercise routine, I will have to get used to this muscle soreness until my body is used to moving like that again. The one good things on my side is muscle memory and hopefully, my body will quickly remember the movements so reaching my fitness goals may come slightly more easily than if I was starting from scratch.
Today was a uni day and final session with the 2nd years before the festive break so took the opportunity to buy them coffee and cake and wish them a happy Christmas, over the past few months it has been really nice getting to know them as individuals. They are a great bunch of young people who will hopefully go out into the world once they finish their degree and make it a better place.
Today was also fresh pasta day! About a month ago I signed up for a fresh pasta & sauce subscription, created by a family last year when their pasta shop had to close due to the lockdown restrictions. It is great that it gets delivered on a uni day (Tuesday) as it makes for a quick and easy tea for me, the delivery is a serve 2 portion so I save the rest for my Friday tea when I’m also at uni and just have something that needs heating up and it’s prepped. I don’t tend to eat much pasta these days so it’s a real treat.
