Two of my Favorite Things...

February 21, 2012

Well, its another Monday holiday. Its nice to work for a company that actually gives more than Christmas and Thanksgiving off! We were closed today, so even though I took some work home I was looking forward to a day off and a 4 day week to follow. I still (no shock here) was signed up and ready to go for the 5:30am session at the gym. I had talked to T previously and he was still heading in for 5:30am as well... and we had a little "project" planned for after the WOD.

We arrived and J joined us. We all talked with K about our "post paleo hangover" which was actually more from the overdose on food than it was on beer (though the beers didnt help with the situation). As I started warming up I could feel Saturdays workout coming back to bite me in the ass. Literally... my hamstrings, glutes and quads were killing. How was I going to do MORE kettle bell swings for todays WOD? Not sure. All I could do was warm up a lot and stretch really really well.

I was feeling ok at the start of the WOD, the first row was pretty hard. I wanted to keep up as close as I could with T and J. We all stepped off the rowers at the same time, this is progress for me, as T is a really fast rower! They finished the KB swings before me and headed to the AB Mats... I heard K yell "catch up with the boys, they arent that far ahead of you." At that point I kicked it into high gear and was the first one back on the rower! I just kept in mind that it was a short WOD, I could rest at the end and that I didnt want to stop... I finished in 11:44! Felt great to me!!

After the WOD it was time for the "Crossfit Wachusett Design Build Construction" crew (aka T and I) to get started!! We had our shakes and than took out the power tools!! The next thing you know, the front desk at CFW was taken apart and reassembled as a smaller and more efficient desk for the gym. Its amazing how much more space there is now on that side of the gym! So... in just a few hours WOD #2 was complete!!





After the "renovation" I decided that since I was at the gym... had already had my coffee and some protein, that I would get in another skill session! I worked on double undies for a few... than it was time for the "fun" stuff. I did a "Death by Cleans" WOD... for 10 minutes. I used a light weight (95lbs) so I was able to get them all in. I love that stuff!!

Finally it was time to go home. K, A and Myself walked out together... it was beautiful out! Nice day for a day off. I got home and since I already had the "bug" in me from working on the desk... I couldnt stop thinking about what project I could tackle at the house. Well, I finally put that can of paint we bought well over a year ago to paint the kitchen with to good use. And... my kitchen is painted. Not really a "restful" day off... but I did exactly what I wanted to do.

Why waste a good day?
