Rough stuff

Reading the board today at CC, I knew it would suck. The warmup seemed harder than usual, I was tired going in, but still! Once we got started, I paced the first 800 pretty well then my plan went to shit :))  I ended up doing 5 reps, rest a couple, 5 reps rest a couple (repeat) until I got through, which saved me some time I think since I was moving more, resting less? hmm

Still playing blogger catchup!

Not much to talk about, just getting the dog healthy still. It's been a huge drain on my brain (and wallet)..stressful times, not good sleep, etc. Looks like things are getting better, thankfully.

Not the movie. It's where I am lately. Since the dog was in her accident last week, my sleep has been totally screwed up. I was on such a great rhythm of more than 8hrs a night, every night, that getting less is jacking me up bad!  Its compounded by getting woken up frequently. Ugh. I think it's even made me sick a few days! Needless to say I missed a few workouts since then, and that is making sleep probably even harder to get. Shit rolls downhill, doesn't it?

Back to work

Tuesday evening, my dog was hit by a car - she survived, barely. As a result, I spent Tuesday night at the Vet ER and then home worried and could not sleep at all. I didn't workout yesterday and, after feeling the stress of the last couple days, I was happily surprised I got to sleep last night. I really needed to get back in the gym today, if only to get my mind off of things. Dog still at vet hospital, the crazy amount of money this shit cost me, etc.

Just GO!

Today's's one of those that is just hell. It's fast and furious. Pretty heavy squat clean at 135 and ring dips are not easy - they were much harder than the squat cleans and took at least as much time probably. I am sure my ring dips in the last round were ugly, but we got through it. Looking forward to a run tomorrow - NOT :))

Rhythm Interrupt

I hate when I get on a good rhythm with things,  like my Monday 5k run, and something gets in the way! I hate even more that I allow it. I guess it's human, but it's frustrating. Usually I get away at lunch to run, stretch, roll out, and get a PWO meal then head back to work.

Some days, things just go sideways!

  • 802am - emergency conference call, panic in the streets
  • 558pm - call ends, no resolution. Barely time to get snacks and water all day.
  • 619pm - arrive at Academy to buy new running shoes. Have issues finding shoes that feel good. Takes forever, and I'm still not sure what I bought are right. Why can't running shoes cost under $90 and feel good? Ugh.
  • 755pm - arrive at Sprout's to pick up a few things. Starving now, btw! GF takes forever looking around at crap
  • 850pm (!) - make it home, eat some pulled pork, and wonder where the day went. Now my motivation to run is gone. Great.
  • 1000pm - Do a yoga session, shower, bed. 
I guess I may have to start getting used to getting my run & workouts in before work. I really like the mid-day break, but it totally screws me up when shit gets interrupted unexpectedly. This is one of my struggles!

More overhead love

Not too often do we do overhead squats twice in one week. I need work on these, so it was a good thing I guess. I did better at them today than the WOD a couple days ago, probably because not trying to blow through rounds of 12. We didn't go heavy at all, choosing instead to go for proper depth and better form.
