The week totally got away from me… My last post was on Monday, then nothing til Saturday! What the heck? Tuesday this happened… Wednesday morning… And my girls started CrossFit!! How cool is that! After they spent the day with me at work, lunch with my mom and an office picnic with Amber. Then we watched Bills Ice Bucket Challenge. Followed by Open House for … Continue reading Where did this week go??
So I went to CrossFit twice today. The first time was awesome because, duh, it’s CrossFit. The second one was awesome because my sister taught the class and she’s seriously a badass. The afternoon class is filled with more seasoned CrossFitters and are total beasts, totally motivating working out with them. And today I hit my very first Hand Stand Push-ups!!! Hurray. But here are … Continue reading Monday Motivation
My favorite Sundays, unless I’m at a race, are the ones where I finally get a day to sleep in, drink coffee, catch up in chores, make my meal plan for the week, grocery shop and meal prep. My entire week stays on track when my week begins like that. Slept in, finally, first day all week I slept past 5. My body needed it. … Continue reading Sunday Meal Prep!!
Today I WALKED the Slime Run 5k with Ms Amber. I hated that I had to walk. Like a lot. But I was glad that we still went. And as usual Amber is a blast to hang out with. Lots of gooey, stinky slime, plenty of cool blown up obstacles and a chilly slide with green freezing water. All in all a good morning. (Only … Continue reading Slime Run 5k
Today was Overhead Squats and Ring Dips… Tough little workout on my already very sore thighs and butt (which honestly makes me very happy to feel sore!!!). Soooo tired of not getting my run in. Ugh. Continue reading Overhead Squats!!!
As I sit in an Epson soak filled bathtub drinking down my protein drink I’m thinking about why any non-Runner/CrossFitter would ever want to be with/date/marry someone who does runs or does CrossFit… 1. Between CrossFit and running, it’s all I ever want to talk about. 2. I’m always sore. Therefore this sexy, ladylike walk that most women have, looks more like a hobble by … Continue reading 10 Reasons you Shouldn’t Marry a Runner/CrossFitter
Day 3 of 21 of no running… CrossFit at 5am this morning, spinning while dinner was in the oven, and lots of ice/heat/Aleve… Yes, feeling a little crazy. Running is my sanctuary. And it’s like a giant closed sign is hung on my church doors. Ugh. But there are these two being adorable, who I snuggled during my normal running time while icing my foot … Continue reading The running withdrawals are beginning…
Sundays I clean the house, catch up the laundry, iron Bill’s clothes and prep my meals for the week. The last few weeks have been out of routine and getting back into it today was nice. The girls and I even went through their toys, three bags of trash later, their room is spotless. So the house is clean, no one will be nude tomorrow … Continue reading Sunday Routine!
It turns out there will be no Terminator leg for me… Finally resolved after a full week of agony to go to the doctor and get my dang foot looked at. I know what you are thinking, “my what sexy foot bones you have”, but let’s try to keep it appropriate. So they took a second X-ray. The first X-Ray was from May when the … Continue reading A little touch of Tendinitis…
Last week I ran a hot but totally fun little 5k with Ms. Amber! Fun stuff! And it was another PR for Amber. And enjoyed some Popsicles afterwards!! Continue reading Seaport Striders Benefit Run
