Surprises all around!

The day started off way too early and not on a good note:

Surprise #1: 0400 Béa is awake and won’t go back to sleep unless she gets a bottle. I go back to sleep shortly after she does…

Surprise #2: 0430 I hear a faint trickle of water… Weird. Nobody is up, why would the tap be on? Oh well, must be dreaming. 2 mins later, Rina comes to me and says: “Mama, I pee my pants!” Great! On the way to her room to get her new pyjamas, I step both feet in said pee on the carpet. There is no way I’m cleaning this up now. It’ll have to wait until I get back from Crossfit (unless Ben wakes up before I get back… Yeah right! Sometimes, I crack myself up!) Priorities people!

I read this last night before going to bed and I thought: “Well, tomorrow looks like a good day to die!”

Surprise #3: Here are my reps for the Double Unders: 0-4-0-4-7! I got 7 in the last 40secs! Just the fact that I got any was surprising, let alone 7! I don’t know what it was, but I was looking at Jordan (a fellow Crossfitter) and her wrists were so limber and loose and something clicked in me and that’s how I managed to get my double unders! Thanks Jordan! 🙂

Surprise #4: I was paired up with Shela and it was nice because we were both doing the TG! We both scaled down the wall walks by a lot. Those are tough! The pull-ups were strict so I needed the red and green band, but Shela rocked them with the green band only! Good job partner! I did 2 sets of push-ups straight on the floor and the other 2 sets I did on my knees. Progress! Both Shela and I were doing double crunches. I felt like I had this, and Shela was struggling, but she hung in there and managed all her sets! Way to go, we were almost done! I was dreading the overhead walking lunges, but we both managed very well with a 10# plate! 

Surprise #5: Funny how I was super dreading this WOD and although it was challenging, don’t get me wrong, I managed ok through it all. Could it be I’m getting stronger than I think I am?!?

I left the box with a big goofy smile on my face. I love it when I feel elated after a WOD. No better way to start the day!

Off to ballet class with my little balle-Rina! 😉

  1. ahhh that WOD looks like SO MUCH FUN!! Great job rocking girl, and great job on the double unders!!! Loose shoulders and wrists are always what I have to remember so they don’t run away from me…and also to RELAX! I start getting all excited and going super fast and i’m way more likely to break than when I’m just kind relaxed.

  2. I had a similar wake up today…daughter up at 4 to watch her drawing on news…youngest peed his bed 🙂
    BUT you got me on the double unders…I’m lucky to string together 7 singles 🙂 Nice work!

    • You might not be able to do DUs, but you rock the pull-up (I still can’t!) We each have our strength and Crossfit is a great journey to improve our weaknesses. All in due time! 🙂
