Hey guys! Happy Monday!!
I might be the first to admit, I love daylight savings! I didn’t this morning, but I did come 7pm and it was still light out!
Today was great in many aspects.
#1 It was 50 degrees, and yes- that is pretty much summer compared to the 17 degree weather we have been through the last few months! I even saw a lady laying out on her driveway. She may be a little whack though….
#2 I coached this morning at GPP and completed one of our “benchmark” workouts.
This workout is BRUTAL. I actually get the butterflies when 3-2-1 is counted down.
About a 2 years ago I PR’d this workout, and ever since then I have tried to beat my time of 11:59. I have gotten close once before with the same exact time! But not any faster.
When I saw the workout go up last night I actually thought about scaling it and not doing it full out to give my shin a break. I rolled and iced it last night and actually felt pretty good when it came to GO time.
But I won’t push toooooo hard.
I ended up with a 6:33 mile ---> Which I am super proud of because I haven’t really ran fast outside in quite awhile and it was a little chilly this morning (which hurts my lungs). So I’ll take it.
I lost my hair elastic 3 times, I forgot my thick elastics and all we had at the gym was these skinny ones that don’t hold my hair back for anything, also there was a little wait time on the pull up bar and then I ripped my palm. BOO. Not to bad but still decided to jump the last few pull ups. My finish time was 14:32. I ‘ve also gained a few since my PR… but I pushed my hardest and came out pretty well! My shin felt good post WOD. Maybe a little TLC was a cure all?
Post workout I fueled up on some pro-oats:
Yea…. looks like vomit.. but it was delicious! I’ve decided anything in tupperware is hard to make look pretty.
Ground turkey, green beans, spinach, cucumber, avocado with honey mustard dressing.
Ugly Yes. Delicious and nutritious… you freaking bet!
I also had Body Attack tonight and about half way through I felt my shin pain hit me like a ton of bricks. Cure all…FAIL. I don’t know if its just because I was on my toes a lot but it was there and it never left. Back to the ice.
My friends husband posted some free JAZZ tickets tonight and I jumped on them! I’m a huge basketball fan and figured it would be a fun date night to celebrate! Brent passed his first CPA exam with a whopping 90. YAY!!! So happy!
We had a blast at the game! Jazz played the Detroit Pistons and of course the JAZZ WON! And I got to watch my friend dance which always makes it fun!
I ate a Quest Bar during the game, it was my first go with them and found it to be a bit chewy but not to bad for a protein bar. The nutritional stats are pretty awesome and I have love for anything coconut lately.
All in all it was a fabulous day!
Have you tried Quest Bars? What is your favorite flavor?
