It’s in the low 50′s today, a wonderful treat after the past 10 days or so of snow and blustery, freezing temps. The stubborn patch of frozen sidewalk that turns walking out of the front door into an Olympic ice skating routine might finally melt today. Birds are chirping, dogs are barking. And I am wearing turquoise suede ankle boots.
I am normally not a shoe person, but these are fantastic. They make me want to be friends with me.
Other things that are fantastic:
The 5 bajillion Youtube videos that I watched from the CrossFit HQ channel yesterday. Seriously. I am still so pumped from those.
Hours spent on Pinterest planning to cover my body in amazing tattoos. Sigh.
My dog hopping onto the couch and standing on my chest to tell me that she’s bored. Kind of painful, yet endearing.
Mental muscle-ups. I am pretty sure that I know exactly how to do a muscle-up now that I’ve practiced them 500x inside my mind… Now if I could just get my dang shoulders to come up with a little extra OOMPH…
Pink zebra print wrist wraps. That you may or may not be able to win next week if you’re lucky. Just sayin.
The “flavored with notes of apple” coffee that I’m drinking at the ultra trendy coffee shop I’m currently working from. Tastes the same as non-appley coffee if you ask me, but I feel much more sophisticated anyway.
Tonight we did 10-8-6-4-2 front squats with 2-4-6-8-10 burpees, rest 3 minutes, then 60 slam balls with a 20 pound ball. I used 85 lbs (Rx was 95) and felt pretty good, which is a pretty big deal because the last time I tested my clean & jerk max it was 95 lbs–but I was able to power clean 85 lbs consistently throughout the WOD. Seeing as my OH squat max is also 85# right now, I definitely think it’s time to re-test my maxes!
Tomorrow we are heading into the Team WOD at 9AM, then taking the dog for a big hike and on Sunday I’m going snowshoeing. Spring is not too shabby here in Colorado, folks!
What was awesome about your week? And what are you up to this weekend?
