one day it'll all make sense.

stop stalling

Finding the perfect title shouldn’t be the make or break…

Today I’m actually being responsible ish and taking a partial rest day.  Like, I went to the 6am WOD but am NOT going for a run as well.  It sucks.  Or I suck at this.  Or whatever… Anyways SP called me out for limping into the box this morning and I will admit that although I’ve managed to coast along in a state of just slightly injured for quite some time now, I need a little break before it becomes just injured.  10 days from the next CFD comp… Can’t have that!! So I’m sitting on my little postage stamp sized balcony writing random chaos and working on some pretty awkward tan lines.  I don’t get to see the sun as often as I’d like… I’ll take it 🙂  By the way, I did sit on my couch last night with ice packs on my sore hips and put in a good effort foam rolling my angry IT band this morning so I should get some brownie points for that as well.  And today’s WOD didn’t really include legs…

Tues. June 14:

4 sets of:
Row 25/20 Calories
Rest 1:00 Between Rounds

Bench Press: Every 2:30 seconds perform: 3-3-3-3-3-3-3


Dumbbell Bent Over Rows: 10-10-10 #25
Dumbbell-Weighted Abmat GHD Sit-Ups: 15-15-15

GHD sit-ups cause it’s going to be one hell of a long time before anyone is going to talk me into weighted abmat sit-ups again.  Still recovering from last Tuesday, and I like the GHD 🙂 We worked in groups for the bench press part cause we only have 3 benches.  I was pretty happy I kept up will Coach Rachel up until the very end.  I got 1 rep at 115, then couldn’t get the bar more than like 3 inches above my chest.  Still pumped 110 felt totally doable.


Florence and the Machine concert Friday night was AWESOME 🙂 don’t know why I didn’t take a camera… So unlike me… But the crowd was like nothing I’ve ever seen at the Molson Amphitheater before! To stand and look out over the lawn section was like looking at a where’s Waldo game.  Nothing but a sea of heads.

This might be just my sleep-deprived brain speaking, but I’m considering I might need a rest day.  On the bright side, it’s been a good ride 🙂 I have still been taking Wednesday and Sunday off from the box typically, but Wednesday has become my longer run day and Sunday is also run-my-butt-off at ball hockey. Saturday’s that I have to work I get a run in before my shift, and the ones I don’t work have been partner WOD days with my chick 🙂


Right?  Well… Even though I played a great game last night, including scoring our only goal, I felt like my shoes were filled with cement for a chunk of the first period.  May have been a lack of pre-game fuel… Brought a normal breakfast to work, but didn’t consider lunch or the fact that I had to race right after work to get to my 6:00 game… Peas and coffee got me through.  Odd combo, but I’ve come up with worse…


Came home and slept crappy, then got up at 4:30 to head to the box. Not much gas in the tank, but got through a challenging WOD and fell into my now typical routine of straight from the box to a run. For at least 10 minutes my body questioned “are you effed?!?!” But got over it for the rest of my pretty casual 5k.  I’m just tired.  Tonight is pretty low key though so there’s opportunity to actually get to bed at a reasonably early time 🙂

Mon. June 13:

5 Rounds, 1 Round is 3 Min followed by 3:00 Minute Rest:
30- Air Squats
20- Deadlifts #155/#105  #85
10- Shoulder to Overhead (Press/Push Press/Push Jerk/Split Jerk) #155/#105. #85
Remaining time in that 3 min Max Meters on the Rower

I don’t have a whole lot to say about this one. After round 1 it hit me that there were still 4 more. The air squats and deads happened pretty quick, but the shoulder to overhead was tough. Shaved things down to #75 for the last round when my push jerk went out the window
