Until this morning (7/4): recreation of yesterday's outfit!
Now, if you've followed along for a while, you know that I have a weak lower back, so really nothing to be concerned about. And not being able to walk down the stairs like a normal human being isn't cause for concern either. I've been in worse shape. But generally when I get up and go, I'm able to at least get some sort of cardio done. Not today. Body wasn't having it. I only eeked out about 2.4 miles--a small neighborhood loop--and it was at a pace a whole minute and a half PER MILE slower than usual. This is one of those instances where I wish I had either run without Garmin or had tossed him down a stormdrain. Either works. Although, I would definitely regret the latter option.
You know what though? Not every workout can be my best ever. It can, however, be my best for that moment/for those circumstances. And while my duration and pace were nothing to go high-fiving (or ass-patting--whichever you prefer) about, it was my best given the circumstances. I'm still getting used to the constant functional movements of crossfit, especially all the leg-intensive stuff. The past two workouts (done on back-to-back days) were both heavy on the lower-body movements, so it's only natural that I'm tight and sore. You know what I found that works great on sore muscles though? Lint rollers! Who would have guessed?! By far the cheapest roller stick ever...which I discovered when I was trying to de-lint my pants at work today. I may have gotten sidetracked for a bit...
But yes, sore muscles at work, then I got together with Katie's mom to work on bridal shower invitations. Super fun! More on that later and more on the top-secret stealth fun we had, but that is a post for another day (after Katie's birthday, so I don't ruin any surprises)!
Have a happy and safe 4th of July!!
