Even though it's a short week, I am praying that it starts to move a little faster! Perhaps it's the weather, rain and fog, that's making it drag.
Morning all! Monday's workout and it's resulting soreness reared it's head just in time for last night's workout. Wheeee CrossFit Xtra Mile here in St Louis is doing Hero WODs all this week in honor of our service men and women.
Monday was "Murph" (run 1 mile, 100 pullups, 200 pushups, 300 squats, run 1 mile)
Tuesday was "DT" (5 rounds for time of: 12 deadlifts, 9 hang cleans, 6 push jerks)
Today is "Griff" (run 800m, run 400m backwards, run 800m, run 400m backwards) --- I'm a little leery of this one but welcoming the break from any bar work, my grip is shot!
Yeah Heather, keep up the good work!
Moonie - glad to hear there's some improvement on the knee front even if incremental
I read this and wondered how and why Oskar was waiting for you to poop. I think I blew a tube from laughing so hard.
I had a fresh peach smoothie today! Dropped in a cut up fresh peach, a tablespoon of ch-ch-ch-chia seeds, a scoop of vanilla protein powder, some ice and regular milk. Deelish! The peaches that are in right now are fab. I bought a gob of them because the kids are gobbling them up, which is good! Better to have peaches than Doritos.
Power 45 class on tap today. Whee fun!!
Last night I challenged my Tough Mudder Teammates to do a little Burpee Challenge - and then didn't do it myself. :( Karma comin' back at me! But I realized after I sent the email that yesterday was Tuesday, not Monday, and I have the Power 45 class today which is tough and I'd like to get through it in good form. There are other people in the class! I want to hold my own! Ya know? So I'll do the Burpee Challenge tomorrow night.
Ha, me too.
Nice workouts from you guys! I don't do nearly enough weightlifting any more. I shudder to think how many of you guys could beat me up...
Today I'm gonna try for a nice speedy run of some sort. (Probably mile repeats). It's supposed to be hot though, so it might be interesting...
Morning 30's I am about to head out for my run then I will lift. I am hoping I have more energy this morning. Open House at the elementary school so that should be fun.
SR good job on getting that run in.
NYC nice workouts for you.
NCRG sounds good.
BigG your smoothie sounds good too.
Maria - count me in on those that LOVE the card. Awesome.
Okay, so I am a total klutz. The kitchen curtains above the sink were all dusty so I washed them Monday. But when trying to get them back up, I totally fell wiped it HARD. And I am still sore everywhere. Ugh. So I ended up not running last night. But I sucked it up and ran a little over 9 this morning. Once I got through the first mile I was fine.
Tonight at GOTR we are coming up with ideas for a community service project. Anyone have great ideas for young girls (must be able to do in an hour and a half).
The weather here has been shitty. Not really supposed to need hoodies during the day in this part of Michigan during the day.
just under 6 miles total today with 10x400. Was about 8-10 seconds faster on each one. Have a goal marathon pace tempo run and my second 20 miler this week. After that it's all downhill from there.
Impressed with your Murph time Maria...originally planned to do it as well Monday, but then realized I had a 20 miler. Planning on throwing it on the calendar after the race.
Only two more days of work!
Oh my. That wasnt very clear, huh? (Snicker) I meant that OsKar wont poop for DH. He holds it until i wake up or get home or whatever. For whatever reason he prefers pooping when i'm holding the leash. Its our special thing.
Mariers work out makes me want a nap. And a massage.
RIL - no sew fleece blankets for preemies? You'd have to check with the hospital to see what they accept, but I know those things work up QUICK.
HA! You did. A few times.
Hm... I didn't get many pics from the weekend....and none with the kick ass shoes...ok, here's me talking to my cousin's husband at the in-between party at my aunt's house. With Nephewleenie photo-bombing. See? Healthy.
Hi all - we got some bok choy in our first CSA shipment last week, and today I tested out a sichuan fried bok choy with red chilies recipe I found online. Pretty darn tasty stuff.
Also got out for a walk with Bard after we had our dinner. I went out and tested the knee with some informal and random fartleks out and back - the knee seems okay, but I can tell I haven't done a helluva' lot of activity since Glass City a month ago or so. I'll see how the knee feels tomorrow and maybe head out for another run/walk tomorrow if everything's okay.
Congrats on the PR Brandy - you continue to roll along with your running.
Hope all is well with everyone, and I'll see you all tomorrow Thursday
