Howdy PAHT-ner…..

Yesterday was leg day at the gym! And let me just say …..oh my!! John Wayne and I are going to be twins today!!! You know that walk that he does…the slow cowboy walk? That’s us me! 😉

IMG_4449.JPGAnother one of those deceiving whiteboard CrossFit WODs!! You know ….the ones that look really easy (or at least not that bad) but as you start to work you realize that you wish you never started it!! Yeah….that one!!!! 😉

IMG_4450.JPGMy box posted this on Facebook before posting the workout. I never look at the work out because I don’t like being mentally psyched out! And I didn’t even see this picture until after the workout!! I’m kind of glad I didn’t see this before. If you read this blog before you know that I have a HUGE DIStaste for leg workouts! Funny fact- my legs are the part of my body that I HATE the most!! One would think that I would want to DO legs because I hate my legs but that’s just not the case! 😉 It’s nothing but pure and utter #LAZINESS on my part.

I’m glad that I will be saying “goodbye” to this week! It’s been a rough one…mentally and emotionally (see my last post…you’ll get it). Looking forward to a nice run on Saturday while Julian is at basketball practice.

What’s your weekend look like???

Wheelchair PLEASE!!!

Again with the old adage “Be careful what you wish for…“. I asked for legs…BABY, I got it!!

20140428-223842.jpgDid I mention it was 4 ROUNDS!!! Holy legs, Batman!! As you probably know, I won’t feel it in the morning, but as the day progresses…I’m gonna PAY for it. That’s whatcha call “DOMS” or Delated Onset Muscle Soreness. Usually doesn’t hit until anywhere between 2 -3 days after the exercise. So…no later than Wednesday…I will be in a wheelchair!

My shins held out on the box step ups. I lowered the height of the box from my norm. I usually use a 20″ and I downgraded to a 16″ for today, and maybe for a bit,while I heal. Ugh……

Since “Shin-gate”, I am strongly fighting the urge to feel (and to verbalize) like such a wimp! But quickly, I put myself in check because they’re many people would might love “just” using a 16″ box! I need to learn that my pity party has to stay inside of me (and/or on my blog 😉). That’s another self defeating attitude that I am working on! One of the MANY things that has to change, as all that negativity, just beings me down. br />

How was your day?

How was your workout today?

Have you experienced DOMS after a hard workout? Was it as bad as you thought it would be??
