one day it'll all make sense.

where there’s a will…

Ok, so I still seem to have the lung capacity of an infant today.  AND, just to add a little kick while I’m down, today’s WOD was a 5km run.  I LOVE to run, so part of me wanted to give it a try anyway, but the smart part of me over-ruled that idea.  Of course, it still didn’t completely keep me out of the box.  That’s just crazy.

“Anyone need to scale today?” Coach asked.  I just nodded In disappointment.  So, how exactly does one scale a 5km run?  Easy.  One jumps on the concept2 for a 5km row instead.  My glutes were angry about this solution. :p In terms of intensity I want to say I find the row option MORE of a challenge than the run, so I was kinda excited by the switch.  Started out really strong, and focused on controlling my breathing so I could survive the full distance.  Around the 3.5km mark, Dave was on me to throw in some 30 second intervals of higher intensity.  By the 4-4.25km point, it got tough…  All of it :p the push, the pull, the whole breathing element too.  Finished my row in 22:43 anyway. 😀  B*tch, please!

And the best way to celebrate a successful WOD? Or anything really, let’s be serious…

Mmm

Mmm

Mmmm… FOOD.  Baked sweet potato sprinkled with a little garlic powder, onion powder, cumin & chili powder paired with a couple of eggs is probably my favourite breakfast.  Or eaten at any time of day obviously.

    You know, part of what prompted me to join the paleo meal service was seeing the pictures of your cooking! I wish I could do that… maybe I’ll microwave mine and then put it on a plate and pretend I accomplished something! 🙂

    • Aww… Thanks 🙂 I’m really not a whiz in the kitchen either, I’ve just learned what foods taste good together through trial and error. Trust me, there’s been many failed attempts too!
