It might be the crappy October-style weather we seem to be facing today (seriously August?! 13 degrees?!), or my recent decision to completely cut starch & sugar from my diet (so sorry sweet potatoes! It’s not you, it’s me!) but whatever it is, I’m tired today. Like seriously considering a nap before heading to Chek kinda tired. Maybe it’s the brain drain of juggling the 2 stores? Anyways, I went into a store this morning and the sales guy made a comment that he liked my tattoo. I stared at him blankly for a minute, then looked down at the wrong arm. Really? I said “thanks!” and laughed to myself. Maybe it’s just my brain that’s tired. Sitting at my make-shift “desk” while typing this post. Here, let me paint this ridiculous picture for you. Make-shift desk = iMac balanced on a shelf in my hall, keyboard perched on my lap, while I somewhat half-squat on a box that still hasn’t been un packed. Half-squat cause every time I forget and put all of my weight on it I seem to sink a few inches lower… Wow I veered away from where I was going with that. The “ya know you’re tired when” part had to do with the fact that my mouse is currently in a left-handed placement while my phone sits to the right. I keep grabbing my phone and wondering why my cursor won’t move… I could just switch the two, but I keep expecting that next time I’ll just remember. Brilliant. (noooo)
Random rambling put you to sleep yet? Ok, good. So, although I have a little goal in the back of my mind to find a day where I get in my mile sub-8 minutes… today was not the day. Some contributing factors – 1000m row pre-WOD, 4x400m run IN the WOD, 100km/hr winds heading up the hill from the box, AND I forgot my running shoes. I’m just a big ‘ole bag of excuses today! Do you crossfit in Nanos? Do you LOVE them? I do, except when I have to run in them. I might as well plod along in my bedroom slippers.
As for today’s WOD, I liked it 🙂 I somewhat predicted that I just might when I heard Coach Sharon mutter something along the lines of “this is gonna suck”. It’s when I hear her exclaim how awesome a WOD sounds that I know I should probably fear for my life a little. My muscle up transitions are coming along nicely. One day I want to actually grab the rings and at least see how far I am from a real muscle up… but one day when there aren’t a whole bunch of people around. Like none would be perfect. As for double unders, well… I just keep trying. I know that trying the same methods over and over are not going to produce a different result, but I’m not sure what little piece I’m missing. I come sooooo close sometimes! To the point that I get double-under-ONE-foot! Haha. Anyways, details:
Thurs. Aug. 14:
20x pretty much every possible us of a band you can think of.
Pull-aparts, pass-throughs, shoulder press, push-ups, rainbow somethings, etc. The “rainbows” sucked the most.
For time – 4 rounds of:
4- Muscle Ups/2- 4- Rope Climbs
40- Double Unders
Time – 18:03
If you’re not a techie, that is all 🙂 Enjoy your Thursday!
Otherwise, please help me out:
^^^ see the formatting issues I’m dealing with? If I copy and paste from the CF Division page (the “for time-” part), line spacing is peachy. If I type away on my own, I get the fat nasty spacing like in the warm-up. What up with that??
