I don’t think anyone would describe the trip home as “short” but today’s trek flew by. My sister and her husband are chatty and that certainly helps. With all the family
dysfunction fun, we had plenty to talk about.
But seriously, the trip did go quickly. We hit the road just after 8 and made a few pit stops.
I packed lunch (ham, kale, and an apple) and snacked on rice cakes.
When I got home, I quickly tossed my stuff into the laundry basket (laundry is not a priority–my massive wardrobe means I can be lazy on that front) and headed to Gainsborough. I missed my second family and though I certainly felt “blah” when I walked in, I left feeling a bit clearer and back to my good old awesome self.
I went to CrossFit and, stiff as I was, trained. Luckily it was a fun group! We did some jumping, slamming medicine balls, etc. and then lifted (bench press and front squats). I worked up to 85lbs for both (3 sets of 5) and maybe maybe maybe next time I do front squats I’ll “love” them like some of my friends…here’s to hoping! I do love skipping…and our WOD today (200m run, 35 double unders (or 70 skips), 15 KB swings) was full of it. I managed to get my double unders going consecutively for the first time today…so I took a lengthy 9:23 to do the workout…and whipped myself and failed hard on the jumping. That’s okay. Afterwards I got into a better rhythm. Practice makes perfect. Adding double unders to the list of things I want to master–pistol squats, kipping pullups, handstand, rope climbs. Gosh I love CrossFit.
In the car, I snarfed some nuts to tide me over to dinner.
After my shower, I had a quick salad (kale, turkey, mayo, nothing special). It’s good to be home!
My priorities for the night are getting to bed early (I teach the triathlon club spin at 6:30am tomorrow!), making a playlist for the class, and journalling. One thing I’m sure of–even if we get “off track” and feel out of it, it doesn’t take much to get back “on track”. All I needed was a couple gentle reminders, a visit to my friends at GFC, a training session, and I’m feeling more like myself already.
Even though it’s technically just about the weekend, I’m just gearing up to go back to work. I missed lululemon and I’m excited for my shifts this weekend–they’ll go fast since we’re busy, I work with great people, and I really like working. I’m hoping to get plenty of sleep, see some friends, and get my apartment in order this weekend too! Exciting, huh?
What are your plans for the weekend?
How do you get back on track?
