To flush or not to flush... that is the question...

So... my boss convinced me to work a few extra shifts this week. Read... my boss put me on the schedule and then said, oh yeah, even though this isn't in your availability you're working x, y, and z this week. So, anyway, I was at work last night and I happened to have my debit card in my work pants, intending to get gas after work. Well, as I was using the ladies room, a scary thought came to me... if my debit card fell in the toilet, would I flush, or get it out? I pondered this for awhile... and by awhile I mean while I fixed my belt basically... and basically came to the conclusion that since I already had to report my card stolen back in January and issue a new card, "flushed down toilet" didn't seem a good enough reason to issue yet another one. So, I decided that, heaven forbid, should it ever happen, I would pray for a boatload of sanitizer and go in after.

Now you're probably wondering what this has to do with Crossfit. Well the answer my friends.... is absolutely nothing. :) It is just all part of the innerworkings of my very sick and twisted (and yet cute and adorable, not to mention loveable, mind!)

But since this is my Crossfit blog, and Jerry has it linked to our Crossfit page, I suppose I should probably talk about Crossfit. So let's talk Crossfit. So about about that pulled hip flexer eh? Isn't that fun. Oh, about as much fun as a barrel of mother ****** monkeys. (And for those of you who are counting the asterisks and saying that I spelled it wrong... no I didn't. I left off the g... so :P)

Yesterdays workout, despite the hip flexer issue, really wasn't all that bad. The trip to Pacers to get new running shoes was well worth it. Now with proper support on my arch, and some added cushioning to my shoes, my knees aren't dying during the run, and my recovery was quicker. It was no land speed record that I set yesterday, but I finished all five rounds of our mepic (mini epic workout... aren't I so CLEVER?!:)). Yesterday's fun looked like this...

Squat holds

For time X5 Rounds

400 meter run
10 ring dips
15 chins
20 Iron Mikes

Finished this in 39:52 I think. I refused to put my name on the board. I'm still embarassed about my performance in the blue room. It still doesn't feel up to par and I've been back healthy for almost a month now... Hopefully. I'm pissed that I missed Fran on Monday. That would have been a good test of whether I'm really back or not, but maybe not since the thrusters probably would have killed. Stacey hit a pro Fran under 5 minutes. Sick sick sick...

I've come to steal, pillage, and descimate...okay, this English teacher has no clue how to spell. You invited me in to take a workout idea or two, so here I am. I like, I like. And yes, lite week is almost over...ugh! Thanks for reminding me. I'll be sure to share with you how awfully good I feel at the end of next week. BTW...I would have dived right in after it too. See CrossFit build mental stick-to-it-tive-ness also. We must all share the same kind of mind! Yay testing!
