It boggles my mind how I can still have energy to write this post after a full day of working out and household chores — not to mention running after the kids!
I had a hair appointment this morning, so I didn’t go running as usual. But I had enough time to make it to the free “Under The Bridge” boot-camp workout my gym hosted down at Lady Bird Lake. Some of my teammates were there — plus Zach — so it was a good chance to chat before and after the workout.
It was tough — but not as tough as the last one I went to. There were lots of elements to it, but the main part was a partner WOD.
2 rounds w/ a partner
100 OVH squats (w/ PVC pipe)
100 push ups
100 sit ups
Med ball sprint
They initially told us 3 rounds, but Zach changed it in the middle. Steph and I were in the middle of our 2 round of situps when he called time and told us to do our last med ball run.
It was pretty fun, and Steph and Beth and I lingered to chat before I ran off to the farmer’s market for veggies, meat and eggs. Unfortunately — NO EGGS! Ahhhh! I was forced to go to Whole Foods. We picked up 36 eggs . “Enough to tide us over until Wednesday,” I remember telling Andy.
(Chuckle.) We eat a lot of eggs.
A couple of hours after dinner, I decided to tackle my first workout of Week 4 of the challenge. I know it’s a lot, but I’m counting on that rest day on Monday. I value my rest days, and I’m not gonna miss them!
50 push ups
Time: 14:52 (Elite)
The push ups really got me. I did a LOT of push ups this morning. I just couldn’t do anymore on my toes today. I had to go to my knees.
Now it’s late. I should be working. Instead I’m blogging. And I have this hope that I’ll actually wake up early to work in the morning.
SLEEP. It’s so valuable, and yet I still treat it like an inconvenience. SIGH. I wonder if my stubbornness will give one day.
