Tomorrow is a rest day, so let's look over the last few days:
Saturday: Blast 900
Monday: 30 min Spin + CrossFit (strength & metcon) + 3 mile run
Tuesday: Spin + abs + 3 mile run
So excited to rest tomorrow. Typically, I go 3 days on/1 day off, but I haven't been doing heavy CrossFit WOD's like I typically do, so I thought I could push it with a little longer week.
My work schedule has been all over the place since coming home from vacation. I think I finally have it worked out so I can settle into a more normal routine! Just in time for the start of a new month and some new goals.
You know, I find it really hard to decide where to put my energy these days ... I want to do it all. And then I realize, something has got to give. There just are not enough hours in the day. I have fallen in love with Spin. There are some awesome instructors at my gym, and as the weather begins to warm for spring, I see my road bike sitting there, begging for attention ... I'm even considering getting some shoes that I can use in Spin and on my bike; changing out my pedals, getting the bike a tune-up ...
But, the CrossFit Open is coming up. I keep toying with joining a box (yes, I still toy with that idea). But I look at the boxes, and I look at the prices, and I look at the programming, and I think, "I could easily do that in my gym, I don't need to pay all of that money." But, then I think about how lonely it can be to WOD alone ...
And I think about my goals, and how I can tailor them to suit my needs, and not follow "generic" programming from a box. If I could just get over the idea that my fitness needs to be a social sport. I have to make a call: work on my needs as an athlete, or sacrifice some of the gains I could make and have fun, I guess? It's just so much easier to walk into a class, do the WOD on the whiteboard, high five a few peeps, and get on with the rest of your day. Programming my own stuff is ALWAYS on my mind. I'm always wondering if I'm filling in the holes, working on my goats, overdoing the metcons, not focusing enough on strength, practicing bad form because I don't have the watchful eye of a coach, etc ...
Enough serious talk!
Today started out with a new recipe! A towering stack of these little sand dollar protein pancakes before Spin class. (I was up early this AM, enough time to digest a small meal before the gym and work.)
They were so easy! 1 ripe banana + 2 eggs + Magic Bullet = boom! I used 1 egg and 3 egg whites, added a little cinnamon and a dash of vanilla, topped them with Sunbutter and SF syrup, they were amazeballs! Totally set the tone for the rest of the day.
And it was a gorgeous day in the ATL (a little sunny, not too humid) and I had some great company to enjoy the warmer weather with.
It was warm enough for me to wear shorts!
My To-Do list for tomorrow is growing by the minute! I'm torn by a desire to tackle the day, or to do absolutely nothing but hang out under the covers with Elliott and a good book. It is supposed to be raining tomorrow. ;)
