It has been seven weeks since I broke my toe. I was confined to #TheShoe up until a week ago. I have been walking but not doing any running so tomorrow is going to be a challenge for me on many levels. The good news is I have been using my PWR Sandbag to help me prepare for the Murph Challenge by walking and pushing Charlie R in his stroller for 1 mile walks.
I am having a difficult time falling asleep in anticipation of what tomorrow will bring. I really want to run, or in all honesty it is a Granny Shuffle, like last year. My goal is to break down the WoD into 20-40-60 at 5 rounds but the reality is 10-20-30 at 10 rounds is probably more realistic.
Thanks to my Honey-do for juicing a couple of power concoctions for me over the last couple of days. He has a power combo ready for me to down with my plant protein powder first thing in the morning when I wake up.
Alright. Time for bed!
This is my third officially registered MURPH CHALLENGE. Last year I was finally able to run both miles thanks to training with my PWR Sandbag in preparation for the event at 26.2 CrossFit in Rockledge, Florida. I did not use the PWR Sandbag in the challenge but wearing it in running short distances made it that much easier to simply run the mile on my own.
This year, still using my PWR Sandbag in preparation for Murph 2017 at Guns Out CrossFit in Montgomery, Alabama, I am working up to a 10 Round sequence of 10-Ring Rows ( modified pull-ups), 20 Push-ups (modified to a bar about 36 inches off the ground), and 30 Air Squats with a 400 meter row at the beginning of each round. I am rowing due to a broken toe.
It is impractical to wear the sandbag while rowing. Taking it off and putting it back on costs me some time, but when I do the MURPH it is without the weight vest anyway so no matter.
Truly I hope my hard work pays off this year and that my toes will be healed to do well enough on the runs to drop my time from last year. It would thrill me to significantly put in a much better time than last year!
#FoodSins. Yep. I am a Food Sin Sinner who is working on becoming a #FoodSalvationSaint, not yet ready to give up all food sins but willing to take one step at a time in the right direction. That first step back on the right road food sainthood is with Fittz Meals. (Thank you Coach Charles at Guns Out CrossFit for the introduction.)
As a winner of the Fittz Meals Contest, my prize was an 8 ounce salmon filet dinner with two roasted vegetables. It was waiting for me in the fridge at GOCF today.
Taking it home for lunch, man-oh-man was it fabulous. There was so much food that I only ate half of it so I could share the rest with my Honey-do-husband. Well, I ate three-fourths of the salmon in all honesty, but I did save him a couple of bites so hey, Good Girl for me!
Honey-do picked up our order yesterday from the Yellowhammer Cafe. He decided to take his first step on the path to better eating with the beef tips, brussel sprouts and cauliflower tonight instead of my salmon leftovers. That is all fine by me because now I can have the rest of it in the morning for breakfast!
We are truly pleased with the quality and taste of our Fittz Meals so far! We look forward to trying the rest of the meals this week. And we have already placed our order for next week!
Yeah Baby! On that trail to portion control with healthy eating.
