Yesternight’s Workout:


With LauraJane, her husband James, and The (former) Roommate,
who came late, and consequently had to do more burpees, ha ha!



40 walking lunges
30 situps (10 knee to chest, 20 standard)
20 pushups
10 burpees

James and I also did a 1-minute plank,
and I made one run around the park (400 meters, roughly) with The Roommate,
and an extra set of the above (except for the burpees) with her as well.

This was a good one!

(We almost killed James after that first set of burpees–
they are real sonsuvbeeyotches.)

My arms and legs are feeeeeeling it today.
Lunges are hard for me,
and I have a bruise on my left knee where I let myself come down too fast.

Working out with friends is *so* much better than crying through it alone!
I love that we can push each other and curse together through the really ouchy bits.

I feel like I have Gym Buddies.
And that’s really nice.

    I slept like a log until 4:30am, then was up for two hours feeling sick, then passed out til Laura left for work, and it took me until noon before I felt awake. That shit messed me up!

    Dude! After my first lunge heavy workout (with a 25# plate overhead), I couldn’t move without excruciating pain. I had the hugest (is that a word?) knots in my quads! It took like 3 days and 2 more workouts to get to where I could stand up and sit down without having to pause half way through the motion.

      We are working our way up to weighted lunges/squats/everything–
      go badass you! 🙂

      “Hugest” is TOTALLY a word when it comes to describing the knots that Crossfit gives us!
