Im writing this blog in the parking lot of Aldi while B sleeps. I’m meeting a woman to buy her “snuggle me” stroller cover so B can keep warm during our runs. Im about 20 minutes early so I figure I could write one out real quick.
Yesterday I was pleasantly surprised to find my former coach coaching my morning class. WHOOPIE! He really guns my engine when we work out together. Ever since we met 5 years ago, we have been competing against each other. A little healthy competition is good for you.
Yesterday we worked on our Clean & Jerks. I’d like to say I’m back to my old PR because I was doing 70% and 80% comfortably. Even so, would love to get that PR moving up a little bit. But I do applaud myself that i am back to my old PR’s at 9 months postpartum.
This WOD took me a little longer than it should have and with good reason. Remember Whip? Well I replaced him with a thicker rope and holy sh*t that messed up my double unders! Not only was I tripping up (because the rope is heavier) but I was whipping the crap out of my forearms! I should have taken a picture of the welts. NOT. FUN.
Now it’s Saturday and I decided to go talk to LA Fitness about their membership fees on those days where I cannot get to the box. Like today….and every Saturday. So I’m not going to go into boring detail about the membership…but I was able to do sprint intervals on the treadmill. 90 seconds of work and 30 second break x 10. I kept it at 7.5 and 2.5 respectively. I think I can bump up the sprint next time but I wanted to see how I did on this one first. These running drills are a part of my half marathon training.
So now back home because running errands got cut short. Well actually, let me rephrase that. I got everything organized for running errands today; the receipts and the stuff that needed to be returned. Got B fed, put the dogs away and headed out when I realized, I only brought the receipts but not the stuff. Crap.
And forgot my stroller. F*ck.
