You guys, I am so tired. These 5:30 classes are amazing, but I’m beat by late afternoon. It’s a little bit sad.
Anyway, continuing with the “it’s nice out so we will do lots of running” theme:
Running and overhead squats. Easy, basic stuff I’ve been doing since day one.
Except today was hard. I’ve accepted that my “new normal” is just that CrossFit is harder than usual lately, but my hips and lower back really ached while running. And on the overhead squats, I lost my balance and fell on one of them. (NOT a hard fall or anything to worry about. I “fell” about six inches and landed on my thigh.) That particular move requires a lot of core strength and balance, and I have a counterweight I’m not used to strapped to my middle now. Basically, at the bottom of the squat, the weight went one way, I went the other.
More than anything, it just kind of shook my confidence and made me feel like sort of an asshole. I’d even gone down to a lower weight, but it wasn’t enough.
Still, not a bad result, all things considered:
And since I haven’t posted food for awhile, check out my delicious lunch (that was half green!):
Roast beef and melty cheddar on a pretzel roll, with a side salad of spinach/almonds/balsamic/goat cheese/dried cranberries. I’m craving beef and spinach this week. Maybe my iron’s low? Hmm. But yes! Working on the “more fruit and veggies” goal, clearly.
I’m going to Chicago this weekend to see my family and I can’t wait! Eek. Only two more days!
