Manic Monday

Training For: Covered Bridges Half?

What Was Planned vs. What Happened

Monday 07/10/17: CrossFit | CrossFit
Another lunchtime CF workout down! We did 21-15-9 of hang snatch, overhead squats, and burpee bar jump overs with a 10 minute cap, then did some more overhead squat work. I’m finally seeing some improvement on these, yay! Not long ago I couldn’t even stand up from a squat holding a PVC pipe, but now I can use a 15# bar plus 10 whole pounds!

Newp. Just didn’t happen. Insert excuse of your choice here.

Wednesday 07/12/17: CrossFit | Rest
I had a meeting right before lunch, which meant that I didn’t have time to change and make it to the noon class, and then I had to go straight to rehearsal after work. Boo.

Thursday 07/13/17: 3 Mile Run | Rest
Rainy day. No run. Blergh.

Friday 07/14/17: CrossFit | Rest
Pure exhaustion set in, and all I wanted was to go home and relax.

Saturday 07/15/17: Rest | 5 Mile Run
Not to get too morbid and detailed, but one of my in-laws’ cats died during the night, and I was home alone and had to deal with it, and did NOT deal with it well. Lots of tears and some mild hysteria. So I went for a nice long run to calm down. And then I went to a karaoke birthday party and sang too much and stayed up too late.

Patriotic karaoke to kick off the night

Sunday 07/16/17: 4 Mile Run | Rest
This was all-day tech rehearsal for Dogfight. It was one of the fastest techs I’ve ever been a part of, and I was INTENSELY grateful to be home in time to eat supper, chat with my in-laws, and relax a bit before an early bedtime.

Overall: Not great, but could have been worse, considering that I had rehearsal every day except Friday and Saturday. I really wish I had made it to a second CF class, but I’m pumped I got a middle distance run in.

This week will be, in a word, insane. Dress rehearsals tonight and tomorrow, and shows Wednesday through Saturday. All of this after working full days every day. I would really, really love to make it to CF at least once, but I think this week it may just be out of the question. I brought my gym bag with supplies for both running and CF, and I think I’ll just make a game time call every day and do what I feel like. Which may be nothing. And that’s a-OK.

    OMG so sorry about the cat 😦 Since the youngest of our four pets (2cats, 2 dogs) is 11, and they range up to 16 … we know it is a matter of time, and do fear it might happen while we are away in Europe! 😦

    Excited to hear how everything for Dogfight goes – glad it isn’t the trainwreck it looked like a month ago! Too bad we’re >6 hours away! Good luck making it through the week!

      Thanks, Mike! I truly hope none of your furry friends chooses your vacation to cross the rainbow bridge. No fun no matter the timing, but I imagine not being there would be awful.

    Oh geez, that would be quite traumatic to deal with a pet death without assistance! I am so sorry you had to go through that!
    God speed during Hell Week!

    Oh goodness, so sorry about the cat- I don’t think I could have dealt with that! Yeah, this week I have a similar plan- lug the gym bag everyday and run when it works out. I had hoped it work out today but I didn’t get off work until 7:45, wah.
    Hope your week isn’t too crazy!
