Another day in CrossFit paradise...
It was so good to be back today!!! As Jerry said, I was sportin' the Stiller *Steeler* colors today! I have missed my CrossFit friends. Especially Gar, he makes me giggle every morning! :) I heart him! :) So today, I was regaling Gar with stories from this weekend, and I told him all about how I "can't possibly workout" and he told me that that's when I should have whipped out my best Karate pose on the douche that insulted me. I like this idea, and I think I shall try it next time I am insulted. *HIYA!* *Random dance break* Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting! Ya! Those cats were fast as lightning! Ya! Woooooooooo! Wooooooooooo!* Ehem, sorry, hope you enjoyed that. Anyway, then Jerry chimed in and said that I should either do that, or offer him up a big slice o' humble pie and tell him to hit some tabata squats. 3-2-1 and GO! Eat squats jack*ss! Anyhoo... once we got past the morning chats, we did hit a workout... being away for 4 days really hurt me. I felt so out of whack today! But no worries... we still had fun... fun looks a little something like this.
:30 work :10 rotate (3 rounds)
WOD 3-5 rounds
Run 400 meters
20 KB Highpull (45)
20 DB Push press (20)
The air outside today was really cold and breathing just flat out hurt today. I felt really really crappy on the runs. Jerry wanted a benchmark on 3 rounds, so I hit 3 in 11:25 and called it quits... sort of. After McCall finished, she inspired me to get up and go do a 4th round. I understand it's sort of cheating since I rested, but dude I was hurtin'. No more 4 day vacas from CrossFit! Still though, I get points for showing up!
On a happier note, I am working on getting a plane ticket for Chicago at the end of May. This is exciting news! My first flight, my first time a little farther away from the East Coast, a 5K if there is one (Tanya? Mr. Mirek?), and my first affiliate! I'm so excited! But, you guys need to quit making fun of me! I can't help it that I've never flown. I'm trying my best to be an adult now and rectify that, so you just have to work with me! :P
Oh and I read Georgia's blog today... apparently Elise is in super duper Law mode and still came in to hit a CF workout today! She's CrossFit LEGIT folks! So I'm dedicating this video to her today. I know she's in the library trolling the internet and waiting for my next blog... so hopefully this will ease her suffering! :)
