Life is messy right now. Stress level is pretty much off the charts thanks to Henrys, but that’s hopefully nearing the end. Sport Chek I’m so very grateful I kept in my back pocket for all these years cause I was only “unemployed” (ish) for a little more than 2 weeks before walking into a new full time role. Curiously enough, right back to the same store I was full time in before I first took the job at Henrys… but anyways, I’m happy to be working 🙂 On the hunt for what I want to be when I grow up still, but not bored and losing my mind. Having a job to do also put an end to my excessive WODing :p it was good therapy when I needed it, but as a friend mentioned “just think… soon you’ll need physio and you’ll be able to make friends there too!” Ha-ha.
Anyways… I’ve gone back to logging my WODs on paper cause I suck at this format lately and I got my girl into that habit too so I’m actually accountable there. However – I SMASHED my previous Grace PR and I’m pretty excited so that was worth sharing! I recorded an Rx Grace time for the first time this year in May 9:53. Yesterday I killed that one! 4:01 😀 and Grace wasn’t even technically a part of the WOD!

I got to work this morning in my summertime “uniform” of shorts and flip flops. Added a t-shirt instead of a tank top since it IS September now and all, but looked around at all the people walking around in pants and long sleeves. A little much people! It was a cooler morning than the utter sweatfest we endured in July and August, but still! I like the slightly cooler weather (especially for WODing!!) but I’m not at all ready to tuck away my flip flops for the season! I’ve already warned Amanda I plan to wear them till it snows.Hero Friday was a tough one this week!! Back up a moment… I was pretty smitten with myself for completing the whole workout on Thursday without scaling the pull-ups even though my paws were pretty angry. Then when I read Friday’s WOD I realized I wasn’t entirely smart. 15 rope climbs and 50 toes to bar were tough with sore hands and lats, but I was stubborn (as usual) and went Rx anyways. Slowest Rx time recorded for the day! High-5! LOL! You can’t win ’em all. My last round of toes to bar were a broken rep scheme 3-2-2…
2(shit!)..1…1… 1(arg!)…1 but at least I finished it 🙂 I’m a bit tired and more than a bit sore, but happy with the accomplishment.

Kanji was back this week 🙂 I’m trying not to totally love this little guy, but it’s pretty hard since he’s so awesome. So nice to have a reason to get back outside for long walks along the trails where I spent so much of last summer… and another reason to look forward to fall when the bugs will go back to hell where they belong.
True story. Actually it’s the thought process that often gets me through the toughest of WODs. “Just make it through and breakfast will follow!” I don’t really want to talk about food today. I’m tired of looking at myself in the mirror and thinking “WTF?!” and I’d rather be at Ribfest with my girl than sitting at my desk munching on lettuce.
