back to my regularly scheduled program

I am back baby!  Back to my regularly scheduled program.  Last week and this week, I consistently got in the gym, something I use to do an auto pilot.  It turns out though (I will say this over and over again), that when I spend the day programming and training for others, my workout plans go out the window.  For a while that was just fine with me.  I needed a rest, my days were jam packed, I was still staying active in my days… but my body adapted and got used to my non-training life, so I ramped up and prioritized my own workouts and I have never felt this good in a while!

take a hike

Sometimes I just have to get outside and move.  I have been feeling unmotivated and uninspired in the gym setting.  This past Saturday, however, was the first warm, beautifully sunny Saturday I’ve had in a while.  I had no agenda.  No work.  No exams.  Just nothing.  That is truly beautiful to me.

This week’s work out includes the use of a TRX suspension system, or you can use gymnastics rings.  You need some kind of suspension for rows or ring rows, where you hold on to the grips and pull your body up to the grips/handles/rings.  It’s always a bonus to add a second pause at the top of the pull.  Try it for yourself!

It may be Spring, but in Colorado, that still means cold, windy and/or snowy days here and there.  And when that happens, I am in the mood for something to warm me up, so how about some chili?  Thai Turkey Chili to be exact!  It’s so good.  Good things can happen when you have some random ingredients laying around.

The 2018 CrossFit Open ended.  I did each workout as prescribed, meaning I lifted amounts of weight as written, and followed all the rules on burpees, handstand push-ups etc.  Each year, I can compare fitness to others around the world and see my ranking over the years.  I was a little disheartened at first to learn that I did worse than last year, according to my ranking.   Continue reading

Day three in the books and I am rearing and ready to rock!  My Whole 30 is going swell so far (if you can’t tell).  I surprisingly haven’t really been feeling the effects of the Whole 30 timeline (knock on wood).  I am not complaining though!  Here are some things I have noticed so far: Continue reading
