Training For: Nothing
What Was Planned vs. What Happened
Monday 07/03/17: CrossFit | Rest
We were released early from work, which threw off my schedule big time. I ended up just going home to eat dinner, run lines, practice guitar, and eat before rehearsal.
Tuesday 07/04/17: 3 Mile Run | Rest
I was in the Stowe 4th of July parade to promote the show, and I had intended to go home and run afterwards. My plans changed when my friend Brita invited me to her gorgeous house where we day drank and sat in the sun all afternoon, and I got a TERRIBLE sun burn. Ouch!

First noon class in the books! It was a great class, more obstacle course race-y than lift-y, which was fun. Going back to work after all sweaty and hot was tough, but I think it’s doable a few times a week.
Thursday 07/06/17: 4 Mile Run | Rest
I was still feeling my sunburn quite a bit, and didn’t want to get any more sun by running outside.

This workout was deceptively hard. It was 7 rounds of 2 minutes of work followed by a minute of rest, starting with a max cal row, max rep box jumps, max rep push ups, max rep dumbbell front squats, max rep ring dips, max rep burpees, and then another max call row. I was sweating like a pig by the end.
Saturday 07/08/17: Rest | 4 Mile Run
I knew Sunday was going to be a busy day, so I squeezed my run in between thunder storms on Saturday morning. It was humid as all hell, but I got it done.
Sunday 07/09/17: 5 Mile Run | Rest
It was a day full of family, rehearsal, and fun. We celebrated Ben’s Grammy’s 89th birthday with a big family BBQ. I had to leave for 4 hours in the middle to go to rehearsal, but it was still nice to see everyone. I ate way too much though, and my stomach is making me pay for it today.
Not a bad week, all things considered. I made it to two CF classes, which is my new self-imposed bare minimum, and I ran for the first time in a couple of weeks, so I’ll take it. Hoping to do at least as well if not better this week.
