CrossFit women have balls!!!

Caitlyn, Heather, me, and Michele this morning for the 9am torture that Annie dished out.....
Here is goes :

1,000 meter row
100 sit ups with medicine ball (I used 12 pounds)
Repeat 3 times for time

I finished in 32:48 EXHAUSTED!! Even before the workout every part of me was sore - this has been a hard workout week and every major muscle group has been worked and taxed! I even toyed with the idea of just watching and not doing the workout - but i was so damn COLD, that the standing around part might have frozen me solid! I didn't push myself today, so technically this could have been concidered an "active rest" day....:)
I also ran 2 miles this morning at a moderate pace on Lilly, my treadmill. My knee was acting up a bit, so I didn't want to push it. Brendan had to be at work at 5am this morning and even though I don't need to be awake early today because I don't have a client early - he still likes to wake me up so I can keep him company while he gets ready. I don't mind - but it makes me feel tired the rest of the day. I watched 2 movies in bed after he left and did some paperwork before I decided to get my ass in gear and start running! I love the early morning the best - it's my favorite time of day - when all is still, and quiet. I can think best then...even better when I can run early- my mind gets clear. I've had a lot of things on my mind lately, and am trying to figure them all out and think positive....all I can do is feel the "now".....

Gotta get a 2 block meal in now - hope you al have a great day!!! Posted by Picasa

Hi Shari-
Was ready about your injury. Make sure you get a few opions before they try to slice you open.
My friend Mike healed his without surgery.
It took a while but he did it without surgery.
I think maybe running the trails would be better then running the roads for you. Just a thought.
Take care of yourself girl.
