Change Of Pace

Yesterday, my lovely husband and I got to spend the entire day together… without the girls. My sister-in-law had offered to watch them for the day so we could just go hang out like we used to before we had the girls! 🙂 It was a lovely day. We went out for breakfast like we usually do on Sunday mornings when I’m not at work or sleeping post night shift and came back home for a bit before my SIL arrived. We then spent the morning walking downtown, browsing stores and doing some light shopping… for the girls! Haha! We grabbed a good lunch, walked some more and headed home so I could remove my contact lenses before heading for an afternoon showing of Gone Girl. That movie was spooky, but it made us realize that we were doing very well, almost 5 years into our marriage! Way better than the characters in the movie! 😉

Our plan was to go out for dinner after the movie, but we weren’t really hungry and I was starting to miss the girls (I know, pathetic, right?!?) so we headed back home just in time to bathe them and tuck them into bed.

This morning, I didn’t have to wake up at 0500 because I have registered for the Masters Functional Fitness League October competition. We have a small group of women from the Box registered and I had plans to meet with one of them today to knock out Workouts #4 and #5.

Here’s what I did: (Scaled Division)

Workout #5: Happy Birthday Tara Coulter and Sally Goldman

I used the 45# bar and managed to do 58 reps in 3 minutes!

 

I took about 10 minutes to rest before I dove right into:

Workout #4: Stackin Up

I did the Scaled Division which consisted of:

1000m row followed by

5 rounds of

  • 20 jumping pull-ups
  • 7 shoulder to overhead (45#) (I did push presses for mine)

I finished in 12:44. The jumping pull-ups were the toughest for me. I felt like it was all legs and after the back squats and the rowing, I didn’t have much left in the legs department! I’m glad Heather was there to coach / coax me through it! 😉

I’m feeling good about the workout today and am hoping to get at least another one under my belt tomorrow. Let’s hope I’m not too sore for it!
