I should be working on a project right now. The deadline is coming up, and I haven't done a thing, really - it's a huge report, of which I have written maybe a quarter of what I should have done by now. Sigh. I *really* don't want to work on it.
So, here is a blog to help me procrastinate!
I had the BEST weekend! I spent it with my bf, of course, and it was amazing.
Tonight I have two and a half hours of Ultimate Frisbee. Should be fun. I should be tired.
This morning I did not go to Boot Camp, as 3 workouts in a day is just too much for me. I did, however, go to Crossfit. The WOD was two five minute AMRAPs (as many reps as possible) with a 3-minute rest in-between. The exercises were 4 hand-release push-ups (all the way down to the ground, pick up your hands for a millisecond, then back up), four front squats with the Rx 95 pounds, and a 100-meter run.
My coach allowed me to try the prescribed weight (95 pounds); I did it, but I started to lose form - it was a little too much weight. He told me next time to do 10-15 pounds less, which bummed me out, but at least for this workout, I did it! I finished almost 5 rounds each time. So I felt pretty good about that.
Saturday we did one heck of a WOD - 5 rounds for time of 30 WallBalls, 30 Box Jumps, and a 400-meter run. That's 150 box jumps, 150 wall-balls, and 2000 meters. I finished in 28 minutes, but was not using Rx weight on the wall balls because of my shoulder. Lame, but oh well. It was a LONG 28 minutes. Kind of wiped me out for the rest of the day.
I weighed myself on Saturday, and the scale read 126. Three pounds in three days? Crazy. But, my self-restraint fell apart on Sunday, with lunch out with some friends, and several margaritas...and some gelato. Oh well! I am back to it today, although I have already eaten 1300 calories - the crossfit workouts make me really hungry! But hopefully I can counter-balance the extra calories with the 2.5 hours of sprinting back and forth I will do tonight at Ultimate.
Ok. Enough with the delay tactics - I should get back to work.
