Happy Valentine's Day, sweet cheeks!
The husband and I are saving our celebrations for a romantic getaway we have planned next weekend, so you won't see any photos of roses, chocolates, or puppy love cards here (pretty sure we've all seen enough of that anyways ;)
Elliott enjoyed eating the antennae off of his Valentine this morning. <3
A) 2k row time trial
Push press, 75/55#
Box jumps 24/20"
Time: 8:47, Rx
C) 60 min Spin class (at a different gym)
This morning I checked out another local box, CrossFit Decatur. Different than a lot of affiliates, they offer two kinds of classes, a regular "Basic Training" WOD and a "Sport" WOD. The sport classes are shorter, the WOD's a little more intense, perhaps geared towards the athlete who wants to compete or learn more of the advanced skills. I dropped in to the 8am class, which happened to be a regular Basic Training class. Worked for me, that 2k time trial was brutal.
World's sweetest shoes ever! Great for everything CrossFit throws my way, except maybe squatting. Then I love my Do-Win's. "Karen" in my lifting shoes = fantastic.
In a pinch, I love these waffles from Van's Natural Foods with 10g of protein in a serving. And damn, was I in a pinch for time this morning to get to work. I was trying to beat the traffic getting out of Decatur, but NOPE, got stuck in it for over an hour instead. President Obama was visiting our little corner of Atlanta, and his motorcade had most of the roads blocked off.
It's crazy to know he was that close to me, as I sat in my car and watched his motorcade pull into the parking lot ...
The irony? Is that I took this route because I thought it would be FREE from the traffic. Instead, I drove right to him! This is what happens when you don't subscribe to cable or watch television, also known as living under a rock.
After work, I stopped into Marshall's to look for some socks. Of course, I came out with 900 other things, but that's besides the point. No, I didn't find socks, but I did find THESE:
Remember a few weeks ago when I tried on a purple pair? Well, I said no to them because they fit weird (they were a medium). I was sad, because I almost bought them, I really wanted them. Thank goodness I waited! These are a small and fit like a dime! And how much do you love those crazy colors?
1. What did you do for Valentine's Day?
Not a thing! We have plans for next weekend, they will be GRAND!
2. Would you rather row or run?
I would SO much rather run, I feel like rowing is a billion times harder for smaller people.
3. Workout pants or workout shorts?
I like moving around better in short, but I like yoga in pants, a little more coverage in down dog ...
