Manic Monday

Leaf Peepers Half Marathon Training
What Was Planned vs. What Happened

Monday 09/04/17: CrossFit | CrossFit
This was a doozy. We started out with a quick ab workout, then ran half a mile, then did a for time workout of 100 sit-ups, 50 burpees, and a 140m overhead dumbbell carry, and finished up with Jackie (1000m row, 50 thrusters, and 30 pull-ups). I was BEAT.

Tuesday 09/05/17: 5k Run | 5k Run
It was a beautiful, sunny evening, and I ran a nice, easy 5k.

Wednesday 09/06/17: CrossFit | Walk @ Lunch
We had our client appreciation event in the evening, so I went for a nice 3-ish mile walk on my lunch break.

Thursday 09/07/17: 5 Mile Run | CrossFit
We started with a set of 15 snatch complexes with increasing load, then did 3 rounds of 30-20-10 slam ball toss overs, slam ball squats, and slam ball push-ups.

Friday 09/08/17: CrossFit | Rest
I really wanted to run, but it was hot outside during lunch, and we were meeting a realtor after work. Whomp whomp.

Saturday 09/09/17: Rest | Rest
This was a “get caught up on life stuff” kind of day. Laundry, cleaning, napping etc. Then we had supper with our friends Lori and Emerson.

Sunday 09/10/17: 11 Mile Run | 11 Mile Run
Wow, this long run was SO MUCH BETTER than my 10 mile run two weeks ago. Faster, easier, and just more pleasant overall. Woohoo!

Weekly Mileage: 14.1
Total 2017 Mileage: 149

    It was awesome seeing you nail that 11 mile run! Yay! I think the whole thing of taking all of this – running and cross fit – on your own terms has been very healthy this year, makes me happy for you!

    Oh – and how did things go with the realtor?

      Thanks, Mike! And unfortunately, the property we looked at was an absolute DUMP! We’re going to contact another realtor today to act as a buyer’s agent, to hopefully help us see better places. Oy!

        It can be such a ‘joy’ looking for houses. When we were moving out here we talked to our realtor in Mass who was in charge of selling the house and all conferred with the realtor in Corning … and STILL when we came out we saw loads of crap houses that totally didn’t met our requirements! Ugh!

      Oh man, house hunting wasn’t great. The place we looked at was terrible. We’re going to try to engage a buyer’s agent this week to hopefully get some better results.
