Monday 04/17/17: CrossFit
Strength WOD was floor presses, which I loved; I’m actually fairly strong in pressing movements! And then the MetCon was a half Murph, which is a ridiculously tough Hero WOD that most boxes do on Memorial Day.
Tuesday 04/18/17: 3.25 Mile Run (4 X 400)
My first speed work in ages! I did a 1 mile w/u, 4 X 400, and a 1/4 mile cool down. I’m nowhere near as fast as I once was, but I hit a sub-9 pace on my last 400 repeat (which also was on a downhill!), so I can’t complain.
Wednesday 04/19/17: CrossFit
For the strength WOD, we worked on Thrusters and Front Squats, and the MetCon was surprisingly good, too–pullups and a kettlebell squat complex. I snuck out of work early to take an early class so I could do a beer tasting with friends afterwards, which was delightful.
Thursday 04/20/17: Hot Yoga
I had hoped to get in a lunch run, but it was rainy and cold, so I settled for hot yoga after work. There was a guest teacher who was a little bit more out there than I typically like, but it was a nice class nonetheless.
Friday 04/21/17: CrossFit
We started with working up to one rep max on Chest Presses, which was a bit disappointing for me; I couldn’t even get to my old max. I guess it’s been a while since I set it, but still. And then we did a 10 minute MetCon with Dumbell Snatches, rowing, burpee bar jump overs, and muscle ups. I cannot do muscle ups yet and didn’t even get there before time was up, so… Boo.
Saturday 04/22/17: Lyric Warehouse Cleanup
Part of the commitment to each Lyric show is attending a “warehouse cleanup” day, where we sort through all of the set pieces and costumes and junk that we had to disassemble and haul back to the storage space during strike. I ended up painting an entire kitchen with my friend Merrill, which was actually a lot of fun.
Sunday 04/23/17: Rest
It was a relaxed sort of day. We took Annie for a walk, spent some time in the hot tub, and went to the 9 to 5 post-production party. And then we capped the night at the St. John’s Club and were treated to this sunset:
Not a bad week, all things considered. I hate to say I’m settling into a routine, because I know Dogfight rehearsals are going to start any day and totally throw everything off, but things feel pretty good right now. Fingers crossed I can keep up with stuff.
Do you like painting walls etc? I actually really love it 🙂
