Lexicon

Yesterday was for me a demanding workout day. Morning: 1.0hr. run, zone 2 with zone 3 surges; evening: 2.0hr. run, zone 3. With heat, humidity, and low calorie intake, the evening run left me pretty wiped. Enough so that after showering I filled the bathtub and soaked.

OK, pushing past the "too much information" and "shameless public self-congratulation" elements of the above, it occurs to me that I have a vague mental category for such workouts without a convenient label.

"Shower then bath"-level workout, while descriptive, probably isn't going to make it as a private mental label, let alone in communication with others. "Double S" workout - shower then soak?

"R&B" has a faintly cool/music ring. Just don't let people know it means "rinse and blanche".

my descriptive is 'burp and guzzle'. There is so much soft solid / liquid intake of manufactured carbohydrates and regulation of water intake to control digestive issues, that it just feels good to swig a Coke and burp it up. It just feels right to guzzle a whole liter of cold water knowing that the workouts over and it won't be sloshing in your stomach.
