I think my coach was trying to torture us tonight.  Literally.  On Monday we had to do the infamous "Fran" WOD and I about died!  I'd been out sick for two weeks prior to this and had this as my first WOD back...brutal right?  Well that's not the worst of it, tonight, only 4 days later, he posts a 1.2km run followed by a 14 minute latter consisting of 30kg thrusters and chest to bar pulls ups!  Needless to say I'm sore this week, but I guess I shouldn't complain, after two weeks off I was dying to get back.  Anyway, with that being said, I do appreciate my coach immensely, he's taught me so much in the past year that I've been training with him and tonights recipe is actually his famous broccoli salad.  We had a games day at the gym back in March and he served us a massive paleo feast afterwards. This was one of the dishes and it was so delicious!  Hope you enjoy it!
