<Witty Title>


I had a pretty bad day today. You know, those kinds of days where nothing seems to go right? You don’t feel like you got anything of consequence done. You feel like you are fighting upstream with everyone and everything around you. That was the kind of day I felt I had.

If I would have missed a workout today, well, that would have been bad, but luckily, V and I made it to the 6pm class. Upon walking in the door, I started feeling better. A little self inflicted punishment to help forget about the day and how much it sucked… that’s a good thing.

Tonight’s workout, I hear, was a qualifying WOD somewhere (not sure of where exactly) but it was five rounds of:

  • 5 power cleans (Rx @ 155lb)
  • 10 burpees (did as many strict as possible)
  • Red Line Sprint (roughly 200m, and there was no sprinting)

My time for this one was 14:41. I thought I did a pretty good job of keeping myself moving while not taking too many breaks. The first three rounds were OK, but the last two felt like someone had removed all oxygen from the planet Earth. Not a pleasant experience.

After the WOD we hung around and talked for a little while. I love the people that we have met at the gym. They are so incredibly nice. Not really any douche bags to be found there.

V and I hung around the house for a bit after getting home. I didn’t feel like cooking so we just scrounged around. We watched some more of a movie that we started a few days ago, then went to sleep.

Unable to sleep by the constant turmoil that is my upcoming wedding in Mississippi, I now sit here writing this blog post. I don’t really want to get into the details of what is ailing me on a public forum, but it has been the source of many hours of lost sleep. Needless to say, a huge weight will be lifted on June 6th, 2010.

I love the girl I am marrying more than I can ever describe. That’s got nothing to do with it. It’s all coming from the event itself.

At the very least, I managed to be a little bit productive by creating a fan page for Crossfit Cedar Park. If you go there and you love it like I do, take a second to log onto Facebook and be their fan.

I guess I’ll try to go to sleep now.

Squatty Fran

I checked the WOD yesterday around lunch time and didn’t really have any ill feeling towards it. Really, I just thought to myself “that’s a lot like Fran… we don’t have to get the weight overhead, but it’s more, and there’s a 1000m row… we’ll see how this goes”.

So, here’s what we did last night:

  • 1000m row
  • 21 – 15 – 9 {Front Squat (135lb Rx), Pull Up}
    This took me 16:22. I think I took more breaks that I really needed. I felt like I was dragging through most of this workout. I am sure that it’s got a lot to do with how little sleep I got the night before. I hate the feeling of my energy just bottoming out a few minutes into any physical activity whether it’s Crossfit, Kung Fu, or whatever. I also felt that I was battling the soreness of the past two workouts, which just wouldn’t go away. I ended up doing my pull ups in sets of one and two at a time.
    This was followed up by 3 sets of {30 crunches, 30 bicycles}. Not for time, just do it. And I did. I have been emailing with the Black Box Crossfit in NYC. As we are heavy into planning everything involving our wedding, receptions, and honeymoon, I thought that it’d be nice to get some WODs in while in NYC. I got confirmation from them yesterday that we will be good to drop in and they have some special pricing options for just such occasions.
    Speaking of wedding and relationship stuff, today’s our 2 year anniversary! I know 2 years isn’t a terribly long time and that you old timers that read this are saying something like “stupid kid, 2 years is nothing!”. Well, you are right, but it’s a milestone for me as no relationship I have been in has made it past the 2 year mark.

We have been doing a lot of wedding planning lately and while stressful, I feel that I am finally beginning to see past the time, effort, stress, and money suck of planning all of this so that I can actually focus on marrying a beautiful, awesome woman.
