All morning long today, all I could keep thinking about is that scene from "Finding Nemo" where he keeps banging himself into his dad and yelling, "First day of school! First day of school!" I don't know why, but maybe I heard that phrase so many times it felt like I was having it drilled into my head. :P
Today is, was, the first day of school. I will admit that I woke up after having nightmares about my class. I dreamt that my PM class wouldn't listen, and they were all standing on their chairs throwing paper and bouncy balls at the walls. Don't ask, I really don't know where that came from but eh, that was how I awoke today. Anyway, despite my horrific nightmares, I woke up and headed off like the good little lemming that I am to CF.
I almost, and I mean ALMOST, turned around and left when I saw what the board said. Now, I'm not a wuss. Not by any stretch of the means, but when I saw the white board I just about teared up. After Murph, I'm having some trouble. I'm sore, I hurt, I don't want to workout. But yet, Jerry was determined to make me do the "Filthy Fifty." Oh yes, I did indeed do the Rx'd version of the Filthy Fifty today. On my first day of school, Jerry made me get Filthy. Sometimes, I don't like Jerry very much. :(
Our version of the Filthy Fifty looked like this:
50 Knees to elbows
50 KB high pulls
50 Dumbbell thrusters (15lb)
50 Dumbbell push press (15lb)
50 Double unders (I subbed 150 singles)
50 Box Jumps
50 Jumping pull-ups
50 KB swings (35 lb)
50 Walking lunges (each leg)
We did this back in April, but it was a different version. It was more metcon and not much weighted stuff at all. I did that one in 37:09. This one I did in 38:32. The burpees felt bad. Very very bad. My shoulders are still on fire from Murph. I just couldn't do the push-ups. The burpees alone probably took 5-6 minutes. Not a horrid time, just didn't feel good. It'd be nice to feel good in the blue room again. I haven't felt good since I went back to work.
On a happy note this weekend, Michigan and Virginia Tech lost and Penn State won! :) Yay! :) I'm looking forward to college football this weekend and the end of my first week.
I'm crashing off the Zone big time. I need to get my schedule situated and get my butt back on track before it blows up like a balloon. One of my students brought me brownies today. Where is that sticktoitiveness I had in May when I took that stuff to the teachers lounge? I ate them... all... and they were good. I had pizza and ice cream last night too... if there is a Zone hell, the throne is reserved for me...
As a side note, I just went to the bathroom and realized that I actually put my underwear on inside out today and just realized it. Yeah, it's been that kind of day... good night Irene... Hopefully I'll make it home before 9 tonight. :(
