You know how some high school sports have 2 a days? What if I told you that yesterday I pulled a 5 a day? Would you believe me? Well, it may be a
huge minor stretch, but listen how I spent my last day before school o-fish-ally starts with kids:
7:15 am – CrossFit Intro class at CrossFit 26. (I highly recommend this box to all people in St. Louis!) I completed six out of the eight classes and because of numerous conflicts and a busy schedule, I will be unable to complete the last two anytime soon. But they are helping me out and having one of the coaches work with me tonight to finish it up. So excited! This means I get to take a real class soon!!!
See those sweat marks? Yeah, that’s #PROOF, baby!
12:45 pm – Leg workout with my friend at the gym. This friend so happens to be a trainer, so he decided to make some switches to my initial plan. Usually when I do squats I use the Smith machine. He explained that this can be damaging to your knees, so the power rack is the better option. Well, that power rack was WAY harder! My legs were shaking during the first set (but I still knocked out 3 full sets!).
5:00 pm – Take Zoey for a walk. Zoey likes to play a game where she pretends like she doesn’t want to walk with me. She makes me hold her for the first few houses, and then once we cross the street she’ll walk. Weirdo. And I look like the dummy who is holding my dog during our walk.
She gets going after a while, and happily enjoys all the smells for the remainder of our walk. Lil stinker.
6:20 pm - Softball game #1.
7:30 pm – Softball game #2. The softball games didn’t go quite as we envisioned (we lost pretty badly in both), but it was fun, and could be considered a workout by the mere fact I sprinted a few times when [trying] to hit the ball.
Pretty active day, eh? Ok so maybe calling it a 5 workout kind of day is a huge
lie stretch, but I sure enjoyed my last day off! And today will be almost as busy with the kiddos coming! Running a mile this morning, then straight from school I’m going to soccer practice where I coach, and straight from soccer I’m going to finish up my CrossFit intro classes. Wish me luck!
What did YOU do that was active today?
