Tuesdays with Izzy

I am so sore today.  Those knee / leg raises did a number on my abs, hip flexors, and lats.  Yikes!  Alarm went off at 6:00AM and I immediately turned it off, set it to 7:00AM and rolled back over.  That lasted a whole 60 seconds when I rolled back over again and turned off the alarm and got out of bed.  I was so sleepy this morning – I grabbed my keys, water, phone, wallet and headed down to put my sneakers on and to my car.  I got to my car and realized I didn’t have my keys.  Ran back into the house, thoroughly went through my purse, searched my whole kitchen and realized that I left them downstairs when I was putting my sneakers on.  I thought I was losing my mind. #coolstorybro

Got into Craic and after asking Jarrod some unnecessary questions, modified the following workout:

A. OTM 10 min
even – 10 Strict Dips (10 strict dumb bell press – 15#)
odd – 10 Strict Pullups (10 wide-grip ring rows)
+
15min AMRAP
10 Ring Rows
7 Burpees (7 box jumps/step-ups)
Run 200m

Jarrod told me to do wide-grip ring rows if I wanted to work on strength getting that initial pull for a pull-up.  So whenever I have the opportunity to do that, I will. Ran during the AMRAP – shin, ankle, and foot started hurting at the end.  I started with box jumps (first round) but the swinging of my arms to jump up started bugging my shoulder so I did step-ups.  The last run of the workout – I managed to get the 200m done in a little over a minute.  But it was nice to be able to have that final push at the end.  Definitely feel like I’m not quite ready to get to that dark place from a metcon perspective – but getting closer to pushing a bit harder.  Final score was 7 rounds even at 15:07.

Still trying to work out my workout schedule (how many days on, how many off).  Definitely need to fall back into a routine.

Went to PT after and hung out with Izzy the PT dog.  She jumped right up with me and then tried to follow me out when I left.  I had to walk her back to Craig (my PT) so she didn’t sit by the door staring at me out the window and potentially dash out whenever the next person came in.  Definitely think we’re seeing progress and I’m in the weird state where it has to get worse before it gets better.  Need to work on scapula stability and also getting the inflammation in my bicep down.  Him, combined with Nichole will do a body good 🙂

This was right before she came running down the hall to the door.  I wanted to take her home ;)
