Please!! It hurts! Haha
Of note, to self – Next time (cause I’m sure there will be several) you decide to set yourself up next to one of your idols and set a goal to match them rep for rep during a WOD… EXPECT to be sooooore the next day. Especially when it involves the GHD. Oh, and 75 reps. Oh my gawd my abs, or realistically, my entire “trunk” (just for you Coach Dave) feels like it’s been run over by a steam roller. Todays warm-up included 2x 1 minute of toes to bar, or scaled version was sit-ups. Very first toes to bar attempt my core screamed bloody murder. I scaled. That sucked too. :-p So did the burpees, but that’s no surprise.
My running buddy stood me up again this morning. Didn’t see the message till last-minute or I would have dragged my speedy friend along with me. Took a bit of self-negotiation to head to the track for a lone 20 laps, but between my iPod playing a good way-back mix and some solid people watching opportunity, I had a good run! When I was leaving the rec centre, speedy sent me a message asking if I was going to the box for the WOD. I had only planned to run today, but… twist my rubber arm. 10 minutes into a 40+ minute WOD I wasn’t in love with the decision, but I so rarely get to the box on a Saturday.
Question – Is it wrong that I ate breakfast twice today? I guess technically I ate breakfast food twice, but once could have been considered lunch. Still…. Dashed home after my run for eggs and half a sweet potato, then again after the WOD for the same thing. I couldn’t help it. It’s just so good! I’ll eat a real dinner, I promise.

So having today off served another purpose as well. Tonight is my work Christmas party. We decided this year to just have a big potluck party at one of my staff member’s house 🙂 Should be good times! Also meant I needed to make something. I had a few ideas, but wasn’t totally sold. Smarti suggested cookies, but I turned that one down on account of my expert cookie dough taste-testing skills. Defeats the purpose of my morning run a bit. Ended up settling on a spaghetti squash casserole that I’ve made many times before. Also the dish our party hostess hinted she kind of loves. Super-healthy, super-tasty, and my hour prepping/cooking put my expert taste-testing skills to work on some leftover baby carrots. My condo smells incredible.
