Upside Down And Pumpkin Farm

I was awake again at 0400, for the second night in a row. Nothing else to do but get ready to WOD!

Skill: Hand stand push-up (HSPU). That was a new thing for me. You go into a handstand, then lower your head and try to push back up, like a push-up upside-down. Yeah, that was tricky! I managed to lower my head onto 2 yoga blocks stacked up one on top of the other, doing a strict HSPU, but I couldn’t figure out the kipping HSPU to save my life! 🙂 Oh well, practice will make things better in time, I hope! 😉

WOD: DIANA I ended up doing the FG1 because of the following modifications:

5 rounds for time of:

  • 5×105# deadlifts
  • 2x strict HSPU onto yoga blocks
  • 9x kipping C2B with red and blue band

I finished in 10:34 and, for once, wasn’t the last to finish! I think I was the 3rd or so to finish today and I must have surprised Coach Caleb because he was cheering me on to keep going when I replied I was done! Haha!

I came back home and got ready for a fun outing with the girls. Rina’s preschool was going to Galey Farms and although it’s not a usual preschool day for Rina’s class, we were all invited to tag along. It was actually more fun than I expected and the girls had a blast riding the train, going on a hay ride and picking their pumpkins. I managed to get a few good pictures of the girls and it was fun to watch their faces while we were discovering everything!

Insomnia

I’ve been awake since 0400, listening to the girls tossing and turning in their beds and Ben’s soft, calming, rhythmic breathing.

I was lucky to squeeze in some sweet cuddles at 0500 with Béatrice when she woke up for her bottle.

Sleepy eyes

 

Coming back to bed after putting her back in her crib, here’s what I saw:

Sweet dreams Bunbun… You too Babe!

 

It’s now 0620, Rina is in bed with us, watching something on the iPad. I’ll try to sleep for an hour or so, hopefully.
