Last night Coach Charles posted the WoD for today and I got so excited about it because three of the four MetCons are things I love to do!
1 mile run for time
200 DU’s for time
2000 m row for time
50 cal bike for time
Any order. Just get er done!
The order I chose to follow was how it came up on WoDify:
RUN: The only adaptation for me was I pushed Charlie R. in his stroller while running. He did not really slow me down that much since I Granny-shuffle anyway. Probably I could have walked it faster but he seemed to enjoy my speed as I went down the hills… both ways…
The amazing thing was my desire to run today. All I could keep thinking about was how shocked my Teammates from 26.2 CrossFit would have been to see the fire in my soul for running today. And it really made me happy to know that running is part of me now.
ROW: Yeah Baby! It is definitely my passion.
BIKE: Meh. Not my favorite, especially after pushing the stroller and then rowing. But I did not die so all is well.
DOUBLE UNDERS: These I cannot do yet, so stick with Single Unders. I dread having to double the count so use a CrossRope 1/2 pound rope to justify sticking with the 200 count. Using the heavier CrossRopes is going to pay off soon, I hope!
I am always the last to finish whatever it is to be done. Today was no different. But I was so excited to do each MetCon as best I could and that is what I did. Today was simply a #BestWoDDayEver at Guns Out CrossFit in Montgomery, Alabama.
Thanks to all of my teammates and my especially to my Coach, Happy Birthday Charles, for the encouragement to keep going and Git ‘er done!
It is almost like Christmas, only better because we do not really do Christmas presents for ourselves because we get presents throughout the year. So it is like Christmas every time we get a package. And oh yeah. Lots of packages this week.
My adorable Uncle Ed discovered a Sylvania CD/Radio player that he absolutely loves. He is legally blind and he can work this player with great ease. With the price being so reasonable, he has purchased several as gifts to give to people who are blind or are going blind as a true gift of love in service to others.
He also bought one for my mother (she is not blind nor going blind). The one he bought for me arrived on Tuesday and the batteries he so thoughtfully purchased for me arrived on Wednesday.
By the way, I am not blind. He just loves me so he bought me one because he loves me.
Today my Indian Clubs with DVD arrived. Man-o-man I love those things. My Honey-do picked the package up at our office suite (UPS offers fabulous service) and brought it to me when I was at Guns Out CrossFit today. Cannot express how happy that made me except for the fact that I did open the box immediately, got them out, and as soon as the area was clear I went to town swinging those babies around. #HappyHappyHappy
As I left the box I got a text, from Honey-do, and he said two more boxes had arrived. Oh yeah. I knew exactly what was in those puppies. He was back at work already. He said he would pick them up on the way home for me.
I know, a great Honey-do. #DontBeJealous
The Premium Set arrived after lunch time via UPS. Now I have every CrossRope there is to date. Next week I can begin CrossRope jumping again! Woohoo and Whoop-de-doooo!
And the last package was not one but two copies of Mike Lee’s book Written Out of History. One for me and one for…..
…..to be continued.
