It's the final countdown...
Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo doo doo doo.... IT'S THE FINAL COUNTDOWN! Sadly, you cannot hear my AMAZING Europe impersonation that I was just doing... it really was great. :) And yes, I really did post a picture of Europ on my blog. Ha! (C'mon, don't lie. I know you TOTALLY heart 80's music!) But for cereal, it is on. I'm counting the hours I have left until I get on that plane tomorrow. I'm uber excited! In a twist, Mr. Mirek decided not to join me at Windy City on Saturday, but J-Dawg (also known as J-2 so I don't get he and Jerry confused) will be joining me! How exciting! Then Georgia and I have a romantic dinner date planned on Saturday evening at Room 21, my 5K is on Sunday, and then after that, I'm all Tanyas... ;) She is going to show me the town. And I highly suspect probably get me intoxicated in the process. :) So... literally... we are in the final countdown. And I couldn't be more excited and nervous at the same time.
But, all that will get updated when I get back. Let's talk CrossFit! Today we worked on some OHS. We haven't hit these in awhile so it felt good to work those out today. We didn't work up heavy, but we were working hard on form. Here's what our fun looked like today.
Hallow rocks :15 on :10 off 6 rounds
OHS with PVS
WOD "A Quick Little Burner"
5 Jumping slamballs
10 Jumping pull ups
15 Sit ups
Originally Jerry said, 10 rounds for time, or 15 minutes. Well, then he said, holler after 1 round. So we did. Then he said holler after 5. We did. I hollered at 10 rounds (8:00) and he said, eh, just keep going. Can you get 15 rounds? GACK! I hate it when Jerry sneaks those in on me. So then I hollered after 15 rounds, and he said, just go the full 15 minutes. How many rounds can you do? Well, I hit 17 rounds, and there were 15 seconds left and I probably could've gotten 2/3 more of a round, but I was spent. I was clippin through that puppy this morning. And you all know, through prior reading experience, that I'm not a natural sprinter. I am more like a good hearty draft horse. I will keep working, but I will not move faster than my prescribed pace. :P Ah yes... Chicago tomorrow! WOOT! Have to get through CrossFit first though. I hope the hand holds up. It's lookin better, but it's still pretty ugly. As my sister would say... "Now it matches your face." :P
