Keeping fit for me
Means putting in the effort
Never giving up
Okay, yeah that was lame. One more try. Then I'm done.
Pushups, pullups, run
Strength training, crossfit, sweat, tears
To achieve my goal
Both are mediocre. The second a little less so than the first. I almost started one that looked like this, but it was extremely sub par.
The gym is my home
My home is just for sleeping
Workout, sleep, repeat.
Now you see why I'm not a poet. Because I'm just oh so profound. Not. Moving on!
Yesterday was quite the amazing day, if I do say so myself. Well, despite finding out that one job that I applied for is "On hold," because it's a government job. Great. But that didn't really put a damper on my mood. The morning started off with a breakfast, digestion while weeding through emails and reading blogs, then a run down at the Rivanna trail. I swear I saw an actor there. Who's that guy that looks like a more rugged version of Patrick Dempsey? Or like a mix between Patrick Dempsey and Hugh Jackman? Maybe I'm just thinking of one of those two
|Ignore the "5th mile." I stopped right at 4. But look at those negative splits--dang!|
Next up was a long day of opening shipment at work
The entire time though, I was looking forward to a special gym date. Six o'clock rolled around and I headed out the door to meet up with this familiar face at the gym for a leg workout:
|Toni! Aka my Stepmom!|
|Repping my old high school track team!|
|Toni likes to joke that I can "get low."|
(Un)fortunately, no squat pics were taken.
|Already pretty darn jacked and only going to get more so!|
|And the snatch! What a champ!|
|I'm just so fast, they couldn't capture my swing.|
|And the snatch!|
|Is this right? I'm so weak. Please no more pics.|
A valiant effort if I do say so myself! And to end the evening, of course Toni and I had some "mother-daughter" pics to take!
|Our respective competition poses.|
|I really just wanted to look gangster.|
Toni said she doesn't know how.
I swear, kipping pullups really are easier than traditional pullups in terms of upper body strength. Those suckers use your whole body, really!
Have you had any quality time with a good friend you have/have not seen in a while? And are you as terrible of a poet as I am?
