After Jordan left yesterday evening (sad day ), I headed to my friend Amy’s apartment and we had a nice evening drinking wine and chatting about school and life in general. It was a good way to cheer up and was long overdue.
In other news, today’s workout kicked my butt and I totally failed at it. We started with a 2 minute AMRAP warmup of push presses at 45#. I only got 32, it was an arm burner. After that we did 5×5 overhead squats. I went light and stuck with the 45# so I could work on my form. I really struggle with those. Then we did two WODs, the first being a 5 minute AMRAP of 30 double unders and 9 toes to bar (I did 60 singles and knee ups) and the second was 2 rounds of 20 front squats and 25 burpees. I started at 85# and almost died, the front squats took me forever. Unfortunately I didn’t finish in under 12 minutes, which was the cutoff for the workout. I was 5 burpees short and I felt like a huge failure .
After the gym I went to the grocery store. I somehow always wind up going to the store after workouts, and I feel like I need to walk around with a disclaimer saying “I’m sorry I’m dirty.” I have literally never been dirtier than I am when I’m covered in sweat and that icky black grime from the mats in the gym. Here are the spoils from my trip:
Here’s the most awesome thing I found:
Prepackaged Parmesan bites! Holy cow! I’m surprised there wasn’t a sparkling flashing arrow pointing me straight to them
At home now with my puppy, who is in heat as of yesterday and is wearing her superhero pants for the occasion.
We’re going to hang out for a little bit and then it’s off to school for my 5pm to midnight shift!
