Well, maybe “flake” is a bit harsh. It’s all about timing really. How long ago did she eat? Is she is need of a nap? Is she busy playing and I shouldn’t interrupt her?
I finally found my moment around 11am this morning — she was fed, dry, had reached a natural stopping point while playing and was starting to fuss. I snatched her up, packed up the car and took off for the trail.
OK — first of all — where did spring go? 80 degrees? Really?
But I digress. I was feeling PRETTY sore from Tuesday’s WOD, so I stuck to the 3.1 mile loop at Lady Bird Lake. Pushing a stroller while running is hard! I took it slow, and my arms were SOOOOO tired. It didn’t help that my earbuds kept coming out or I would get tangled in the cord. That resulted in several stops to “fix” the problem. Grrrr!
Time: 37:30 – super slow! And I’ll admit it, I walked down the spiral ramp on the north side of the Pfluger pedestrian bridge. I was resting in the guise of being safe.
This evening, Andy encouraged me to join him in a WOD, and since it’s Wednesday and one of my goals is to work out on Wednesdays, I agreed.
9 Hang Power Clean
6 Push Jerk
Time: 10:06 @ 65#
I smoked this WOD, compared to the last time I did it, which was back in December. Maybe I’m not as tired this time? Or maybe I’m also stronger. I certainly felt stronger, and I blew through those hang cleans like the bar was a toothpick.
Now, time to rest up before tomorrow morning’s Crossfit workout. It’s gonna be a doozy.
