Back to the grind!

After a two week hiatus to immerse myself in the joys of strep throat and sinus infection, I went back to CrossFit. I missed my morning workouts! I knew that I might have a hard time depending on the workout. My lungs are not happy, but neither am I when I’m not running or crossfitting.

This morning’s WOD included a lot of running and some good intense lifting.

For time:

  • 1200m Run
  • 32 Deadlifts(82#)
  • 800m Run
  • 16 Front Squats(62#)
  • 400m Run
  • 8 Clean and Jerks(62#)

I finished in 20:19 and didn’t die. That’s always a good day.

I miss running. I miss training. I was supposed to run short intervals tonight, but I just don’t have it in me. I’m going to crash hard in about 30 minutes.

The calorie counting thing took a huge nosedive today when I loaded my fitbit.

image Today was the first day I had a workout calculated and I didn’t get near my adjusted calorie goal .  Using my weight and height, Fitbit calculated 787 calories burned in CrossFit!! The rest was through daily steps.  I should have made another protein drink for this afternoon.


My usual before CrossFit drink. Coffee, chocolate, pb, banana, protein powder, Amazing Grass


Lunch in my Bento box was leftover tomato bean soup, broccoli carrots with hummus, and grapes. I ate the yogurt and granola during snack time.


Dinner was a quick grab salad from Subway. Stephen was in town for a training class so we met for dinner. I got banana peppers for the first time on my salad. I had no idea who that woman was who said very plainly “banana peppers”, but I ate them and I will get them again. Although, to be honest, I couldn’t tell much of a difference between those and a pickle. Lovely iphone pic. And I had my good camera in my bag, but was too lazy to get it.


Guess what I did when I got home? Crashed for two hours. I feel like death warmed over now. And I was starving. Turkey and cheese and OJ. I’ve been craving orange juice a lot lately.


BUT, I have to get ready for tomorrow. Tomorrow’s WOD is INSANE. It will have it’s own post. It will consist of 52 exercises based on a deck of cards. I’m actually excited about this! Ask me again at 7am how excited I am. 😐

Have a great night!
