Thursday came and went and ended with a late work day and a trip to CrossFit. On my way there I dropped off the disposable camera that we carried with us for the entire 16km of Tough Mudder last weekend. We weren’t sure if any of the pictures would have turned out. It was a pleasant surprise to see that about 10 of the 27 photos did turn out and some of the dirtiest parts of our weekend were captured. Here are a couple of my favourites.
We definitely had a blast. Despite me not loving the actual race itself, I really wouldn’t want to do it with anyone but these girls. So supportive and SO SO funny.
CrossFit had a really cool strength wod last night:
5 strict press, rest of the minute hold plank
This was tough! My arms were feeling it after this one for sure. I had to lower my weights a couple of times but my awesome coach convinced me to start higher than I was going to, and I really appreciated that she did that.
200 m run
Tabata- sit ups
200 m run
Tabata- push press
Tabata- Russian twists
200 m run
Tabata- weighted box step ups
This was a tough and a loooong wod. It felt amazing after I finished. I felt so strong. I also need to point out something, I wore a tank top that I have felt too self conscious to wear in a long time and I think it looked pretty good.
I got home and I was a little stressed because I had a little bit of conflict with a friend. It’s over something silly, but I don’t like conflict so it makes me uneasy. I need to learn how to just let things go and accept that I can’t control everything in my life. That’s hard. I just can do what I can. That’s all. And anything else is out of my control. I am working on it. Work in progress right? One of the goals I recently set for myself was to do what makes ME happy, and stop worrying so much about what other’s think. That’s not easy to do.
This morning I had set my alarm for 5:30 to run and when it went off I was like “nope, not happening”. I made excuses and kept snoozing the alarm. After several snoozes and after J had left I realized that I didn’t have to go at 5:30. C was at her grandma’s so I could go whenever. So I did just that. I got up and I went. And it felt amazing. I came home energized, refreshed and with a clearer mind.
I got showered, enjoyed my breakfast and headed to work to tackle another busy day. I have a busy weekend ahead of me, so I am glad I got that run in this morning. We do what we can. Right?
Happy Friday friends!
Does conflict make you uneasy?
It actually can make me feel physically ill. It’s something I have to get better at dealing with.
Are you a victim of the snooze button?
I am. every. day.
