So. Much. Energy

Yesterday was a busy work day but I felt like I accomplished a lot.  I woke up late and was rushed in the morning so I opted for a shake for breakfast and made the pumpkin pie one again only this time added ice and it was delicious!  After work I had an unexpected night to myself.  J was working late, and C went to a friends house so I headed to CrossFit.  I don’t usually go on Tuesday’s so I didn’t know that on Tuesday’s the class is a Strongman Lifting Class.  We did some cool lifts.  We did an axle clean and jerk, it felt really strange but it was really neat to try something new.

* the difference was we were to do clean and jerks in a different way than we usually would, with just a barbell.  I chose to do kettlebell clean and presses, with a kettlebell in both hands.  It felt super awkward but it was a great strength workout.  I felt like there wasn’t enough cardio for me though.


I headed home and once I got home it was really starting to cool down and feel like a nice night I decided to go for a run.  I started out just planning a short HIIT but it was feeling really good so I decided to keep going and I finished my 5km route.  I had so much energy I just wanted to keep going.  It was a good stress relief and my mind was enjoying the break from all the overthinking I have been doing.

It was a really nice night and I felt like I was really taking my surroundings in and enjoying them.  I noticed the beauty of where we live.  The was starting to set and the skies were so pretty.

After I got home I did some laundry and made myself a dinner of spicy quinoa and veggies.  I watched some of the Bachelorette Men Tell All but mostly just got myself organized and ready for the next day.

Today I have been having a real day from Hell.  I am looking forward to my after work CrossFit work out to get my head straight again.

Are you planning a workout tonight?


Do you ever just keep running to enjoy the beauty?

  1. Never in my running phase did I ver run further than I had to. I wish I could have been a better runner who could just keep going, but it was so hard for me it was a struggle to get through all my scheduled training distances. I don’t know how I ran a marathin. Now when a WOD has 400 m runs in it it practically kills me! I’d much rather lift sh!t than run!
