The last 48 hours or so have been pretty busy for me. In preparation for the dinner party I was having at my place I had to do a pretty good job cleaning my place. That job spanned Friday and Saturday. And today I had a run in the morning, followed by bread class in the afternoon. Class was especially draining today because we were working with a high hydration dough that was sensitive to over-mixing when using the machine. As a result, we had to knead the suckers by hand. Since it was a wet dough kneading wasn’t an option at the beginning. We really had to kind of pick it up and slam the dough back on the table. Class was quite fascinating to listen to: talk talk talk SLAM talk talk SLAM talk SLAM. All of that slamming of the dough on the table really drained us all. By the end of the class I felt zonked out. From there I visited the parents just to drop off some of the bread, but right after dinner I couldn’t help but just nap on their couch. I had nothing left in the tank.
So, no, I still haven’t learned my lesson. I wrote about these same conditions a few weeks ago. Maybe I should bring coffee into class, or something with a fairly high carb content. I speculated about it before but I haven’t implemented anything yet. All of this is only going to get way tougher once my running distances start increasing. Ah hell, and just think about CrossFit that I have to squeeze in on Monday along with improv practice. I’m overworking myself entirely, like a dough with over-developed gluten.
