Happy Monday & Happy Leap Year! I am officially done with my dietetic internship so I’ve got the next few weeks off to study, apply for jobs, and relax before I take my exam.
On Saturday, I said I ran 6 miles before work. Well… that was a lie. I wrote the post on Friday night and set it to post at 11:00am and then just forgot about it. The truth is, I slept in on Saturday because I was tired and was going to be working all day/night so I put the run off until Sunday evening and I gotta say, I’m kinda glad I did. The weather was perfect (except for the wind…) and I did 6 miles in just over an hour. I stopped to snap this picture on a trail near my neighborhood – to the left is a golf course and to the right is marshy area.
After our run (Matt did 10!!), we made steaks, mashed potatoes and asparagus while we watched The Oscars. I typically don’t care about award shows but LEO WON! HE DID IT! HE WON AN OSCAR! THIS IS HOW I FELT :
This morning I woke up around 7, walked Thor (we are watching him again for a few weeks!!), and then went to my 2nd ~official~ CrossFit workout. My first day was just an assessment to make sure I knew how to do the lifts and with proper form. My first official workout was a modified 16.1 (I can’t do pull-ups or 65# OH lunges yet) and that wiped me. This mornings workout was challenging, for sure, but I was able to do most of it RX’d (4rds of 20 wall balls @ 14# and 20 power-cleans @ 65# with a 20min time-cap). I had to drop my cleans to 45# for the last round since my form was starting to suffer but otherwise it was a pretty good workout! I’ve decided to try out CF (again) because there was a really great Groupon deal for a gym in my area and I wanted to do something different. I fell into a rut working out on my own & wasn’t progressing. Enter CF.
The rest of the day will be spent studying (2 hours in so far!), job applications, nannying and the Teen Mom OG Reunion (since I’ve already finished Fuller House!). Tomorrow’s an early day (4:15am wakeup) since I’ve picked up some shifts at the pool for the next few weeks, WOOF.
