Another good Friday in the books! Unfortunately I missed this girl for my normal Friday afternoon, but I did get to meet up with momma bear for lunch! We were going to be little piggies and get pasta from Olive Garden but decided to be a little more health conscious and opted for turkey sandwiches from a local deli instead. They are both loving and kicking ass in CrossFit. That makes me so happy 😀
After I finished my lunch date I came home and bopped a bit before heading to CrossFit. I am still realllllly sore from the million kettlebells I did on Wednesday but working out helped loosen me up a lot. The second I walked into the gym today, I wanted to leave. Today’s WOD? HELL.
The Rx weight for women is 55 pounds. Considering how sore I was and I have a long run tomorrow, I wimped out a bit and did 45 pounds for everything. The worst part of that whole thing? Step Up Push Press. They. Were. HORRRRIBLE! But I survived. Honestly, I wish I didn’t wimp out. I could have done the Rx weight. I am kicking myself now. Oh well. next time.
Tomorrow I have a 2 hour 20 minute run planned. I am switching things up a bit. The friend that I ran St. Lukes Half Marathon with is running 16 tomorrow. Now that I am basically her neighbor I asked if I can tag along. I think the time and mileage should coordinate well. I am hoping that having a distraction of someone to chat with will help make the time pass quicker. We are starting about an hour after I normally do too so you know I am happy about the extra sleep!
I have a new, fun accessory to try out on my run too.
I also stocked up on some shot bloks to take with me.
**Little trick with those bad boys. Cut them in half, roll those suckers in sugar and put in a plastic baggy. Way easier to choke down since they are so huge. The sugar helps so they don’t stick together too 😉
Another fun running thing I got today?
As for the rest of the night? Other than researching how to foam roll and some running related core exercises I will be hanging with these guys.
Friday night in with tons of water, a foam roller and too many magazines? It’s official….
WELCOME TO MARATHON SEASON
Now seriously….how do I use that foam roller?
ps- don’t forget to win yourself some nut butter!
