So today was another rough one... it was ALMOST like the fourth lady this week... but not quite. Today was a heavy Fran, with a little bit of my old friend RUNNING in there. I haven't run since the half so today was going to be a good test for me to see if things have fully recovered.
Today's WOD looked like this.
800 M run
400 M run
800 M run
Weight-75 w 115 m
Haha... yeah... this felt as bad as it looked, because not only was it a heavy Fran, it was chest to the bar chins. Sooooo basically, go do Fran, and while you're at it, run a little bit more than a mile too. Oh, and it was freakin' COLD this morning too. Fall is here, which is great, because last year we never really got fall. It was 60-70 degrees straight up through November, so I'm totally loving it. But running in that this morning was CHHIIIIIILLLLLLYYYYY! BRRR!!!
The 21 thrusters took me a hot minute, but the other two sets actually felt ok. Not great, they were still sort of slow, but they felt ok. The chins man, those took me awhile though. The chest to the bar is only a few inches but it completely changes my form and so it throws me through a loop. I can't reset so I can only do a chin or two at a time. It's a lot harder than one would think. But, I got 'er done, and actually had a time that wasn't tooooooo awful bad, so I'm ok with my sort of fourth lady this week though. :)
Now, I have to say, for those of you who don't CF with me, you have to understand how the building that we work out in is set up. We are on the second floor of a globo gym, renting space from a Jiu Jitsu facility. (this is only for a short while longer though...... wwwwwwwoooooottttt!) Anyway, the globo gym is making modifications to their back entrance where we normally come in, so now we have to walk in at the back entrance, and walk through the side of the gym.
As I was coming through this morning, I started to people watch. The crowd at the gym at zero dark thirty is an interesting one. But I just couldn't help myself. I started staring. And I saw this guy.... he was doing bicep curls on a machine, completely leaning to one side and completely doing them wrong. I really wanted to walk over, smack the dude on the forehead, tell him to sit up straight and do the reps right, and then go about my merry way. But of course, I couldn't do that, so I settled for just making a bizarre face as I walked by and shaking my head.
But then a thought hit me. I'm never going to be able to date anyone who isn't a CF'er. Seriously. I know it. I won't be able to stand it. Said man will come home, complain about work (totally respectable, work sucks sometimes) and then will talk about the "workout" he did at the gym and the protein shakes he had for breakfast and lunch. I'm therefore going to be forced to keep down my lunch, and feel the need to harm him or myself. Then I'm going to be forced to leave, well assuming that it isn't my place. If it is my place, then he'd have to leave, in what I'm assuming will probably be a big sissy mobile that will match his girlie pants really well. Ugh. Really though... how can I respect a man who thinks that bicep curls are a workout? Seriously? For cereal... The only way it would ever work is if said dude is opening to a conversion. I mean like a "Pukie is my Savior" now sort of conversion.
It will have to be an honest and real conversion of course. None of this CF two days a week and then oh, I think I'll skip CF and go to the globo gym today and eat a power bar. Nope, no way. He would have to prove himself CF Legit. Luckily for him, I have 34 ways to know if you are CF legit.... ;) LOL.... oh yes... indeed... I do have the most random thoughts sometimes... ahhhhh until manana! :)
