A good intense. The rugged rope burns on the inside of my thighs are proof. The hardest part was having a team mate. Rude, I know. I got "stuck" doing what I considered the worst part of the WOD, the Rope Climbs. I'd rather be thrusting any day - 105# didn't feel too bad.
I would knock out the rope climbs, the box jumps and get at least 2 thrusters in by the time the Husband came back in from his run, then I was off running and he was left to carry on where I left off ... When I came back from my runs though, he'd just be starting on the climbs. Which left 90% of the climbs up to me. Lucky girl, lucky girl ...
And I was the dum dum who didn't wear pants. Besides my failing grip, that was the only thing holding me back, the rad chaffing happening south of my Lulu's.
We were ate up after that mess!
The 31Heroes Project came about in response to the Chinook helicopter crash that took place on August 6, 2011 killing 30 military service members and one military working dog. Our first event was a fundraiser workout held four weeks after the day of the crash. In that short time, over 430 gyms hosted an event, more than 10,000 people participated, and $300,000 was raised and given directly to the 30 families affected. Through this event we quickly discovered that many of us in the CrossFit community have a strong desire and will to support those that have given the ultimate sacrifice to our country and its citizens. Men and women of our armed forces are giving their lives constantly, sometimes with minimal recognition for their sacrifice or that of their family’s sacrifice.
This is how we, the Crossfit community, take a moment of silence in these heroes honor. No workout can come close to the ultimate sacrifice that they made, but we remember and honor their sacrifice in our way: sweat, blood, tears.
Watching this girl (Coach Lis) bang out the thrusters and rope climbs was pretty awe inspiring. She might have been a monkey in another life ...
We hit up IKEA (because it's right in that area) on the way home. We grubbed and picked up a few things for the house that is really coming along, I can happily say! We only have 4 more boxes to unpack, most of which is the husband's junk, so I claim no responsibility. :)
That veggie wrap was the bomb dot com. A side of coffee with half and half, and oh, wait, what have we here? A huge slice of chocolate torte? I think yes!
The Husband ordered one of everything on the menu.
We are not gluttonous fatties at all.
Today I finished a little bit more unpacking, cleaning, and organizing. I think I shredded my body weight in paperwork and recycled a small dump truck worth of magazines.
I thought it would be nice to clean the couch: steam it, vaccum it, rid it of dog hair, etc. I did not realize what a time suck it would be. It was almost noon before I realized I needed to eat.
Re-heated Protein Pancakes from earlier this week, coffee and a scramble of egg whites, Fage, banana and Kashi cereal. (I still haven't found PB2, and I have been checking the stores that Bell Plantation lists on their website. I have one more store to check before just giving in and ordering it online.)
Curtains are hung, couch is clean, office is unpacked, kitchen is organized, things are coming together!
I decided to treat myself to a pedicure. I found the greatest nail salon just 2 miles from our house! I went with a pretty orange color from Essie. Pedicures are my favorite relaxation method. I always leave the salon feeling like a noodle.
My dog is such a camera hooker.
Dinner was fabulous. I brought home sushi, and even splurged and had a glass of white wine with the husband. Ah, chardonnay.
Then my sweet tooth hit something fierce, so I threw some Paleo Mint Chip Ice Cream together. Better than any So Delicious!
Did you participate in any events this weekend?
Are you Paleo?
I'm not Paleo at all, though I do follow certain Paleo recipes because I like that they're gluten-free, lower in sugar and generally just better for our bodies.
