Blizzard 2013

This week was a tough week mentally.  I wasn’t feeling motivated.  I’m just tired of all my injuries and dealing with them all the time.  I am trying to get on a path to making my body healthy and I feel that my body is betraying me…constantly.  Right now, I’m not really in a good head space – but I know this will pass.

To that end, I didn’t go to Craic on Friday (for reasons other than simply being unmotivated) and didn’t plan to go today with all the hub bub going on.  After all, the Blizzard of 2013 hit!  Instead of working out at the gym, I did a total of 5.5 hours of shoveling between our driveway, walkway, stairs, snow bank from the plows that formed at end of said driveways…Lifting, throwing, walking.  Not really a wordy post today, but I’ve got lots of visuals from the storm.  I must admit, Crossfit set me up for all the work I did today.  Prior to Crossfit, I would have lasted about an hour before I needed a lengthy break.  Today, I went for 3.5 hours before I needed a break – and that was just a quick one to guzzle down some Coconut Water and eat a light lunch.

Lots of snow!  After being at home for over 24 hours, I was going stir crazy.  Just as I was mentioning to Niko that I was going crazy and needed to get out of the house, my friend Ann texted me and asked me if I wanted to go to Craic.  John, one of the owners, was headed there and having an open gym.  I immediately grabbed my stuff and was out the door!

While I was there, I didn’t want to do an entire workout as I was pretty hammered from today’s snow removal.  Instead, I did mobility, hung around the gym and then I did my airdyne homework that Jarrod assigned me for the week.  10 minutes for AMCalsAP.  I managed to get 19 more cals that the last time I did it so I was happy.
