After my race, I did a lot of stretching, and I had help foam rolling. OK, her version of help. I wanted to recover well and I could already tell where the soreness was creeping in, and finding knots with the lacrosse ball. Recovery also meant an hour-long nap after lunch, with Allie. She can curl up very small and likes to snooze with me.
The rest of Saturday was low-key. I did go to the liquor store since I needed tequila for a marinade I was making Sunday, and the liquor stores are closed Sundays. I can get a lot of groceries, but I needed to get that. Since it was for a marinade I got the small bottles. I like margaritas but wine is my go to. The recipe was for Caribbean island lime shrimp. I made it with white rice, the Red Lobster biscuits and pineapple chunks. You should have seen the mess in the kitchen. I try to clean as I wrap up stuff, but there was still a lot to clean up once I was done.
I started my Halloween movies too. Since there's never much on TV Friday nights, I watched Hocus Pocus while I relaxed before my race. I will admit, I was not a fan of the movie when I was a kid, but I love it now. How can you not like Winifred? That is a role you can have fun with, and Bette Midler certainly had fun. Next up is Little Shop of Horrors from Netflix. That will probably arrive Tuesday.
