While I didn’t really do a ton of things in the garage I can’t really complain about it too much. I’m feeling tired and got to my lifting way later in the day than I’m used to because we were running around all morning. My legs are feeling like absolutely dead weight today after yesterday’s double WOD day which included weighted lunges and weighted step ups. I didn’t even know how I would get through my strength but I did.
I don’t know what the issue is with people when they’re driving but it seems like it’s a wicked combination of stupidity and selfishness. Any time we go to giant in the morning the lot is full of such drivers. It all begins with the selfishness of the people at Dunkin Donuts. I don’t know if the inside is open or if it’s only drive through nor do I care. I can assure you we will not be visiting that establishment due to them being a massive problem and doing nothing to solve it though.
Today the weather has been much more tolerable for me. It’s much cooler than it has been and the humidity is gone. I felt good when I woke up and got my lifting session out of the way fairly early since I knew I was hoping to double up oln WODs today. I started out as I normally do with the front squats at 20 pounds. They felt great today. I thought they might bother my hands a bit since they were sort of sore in the backs of my hands in those million little joints but it felt fine.
You know, Hell, everyone knows of putting things away in a safe place where it won’t get lost. That place that is so safe you can’t even find it later. I know I can never locate the thing that I need when I need it once it’s put in that safe spot. Today’s a prime example of that. Our lawnmower’s starter string is getting bitched up last fall. Actually it had broken part way down it but there was still enough you could start it the old school way.
It used to happen when we went to the Crossfit gym from time to time and it happens here at home once in a while too. If I wasn’t sure about the count in the gym I would just had them put work or some snarky comment about how I am unable to count at times. It usually happens when the WOD just doesn’t seem to flow to me. This morning’s WOD was one of those cases for me where I either lost track of rounds or remembered it wrong.
Today is certainly a bit warmer than I would prefer and more humid than I would like but it’s what should be expected as we’re transitioning from spring into summer. Just a few days ago we turned off the heater’s pilot light in the garage and now I feel like it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibilities to turn on the air conditioner if it were in the window.
This morning when I woke up it was pretty nice out. Nice and cool. There was even a bit of sunshine earlier but the clouds quickly thickened. It was one of Those spring mornings where it feels mild but not too cold or too warm. It felt just right. We had some light rain and drizzle but it looked like it was threatening to do more than that. As the day went on the humidity crept up, assisted by the rainfall.
I am not complaining and not really disappointed in how my lifting went today. Their will be days like this. Sadly they will likely become more common as I get older. Mid 40s isn’t exactly young! I feel its every day that I wish I would have started to lift seriously at a much younger age but I didn’t have the means then. It is what it is though and better late than never!
Today I will admit I am not really feeling it. I think it’s a combination of the past couple of days' heat and definitely the humidity yesterday has me feeling at least a little run down. I slept last night but not well at all. I just really couldn’t feel at all cooled off. I also had and still have a lot of shit in my throat. I really just never was able to cool off after yesterday’s second WOD, this week’s sun’s out guns out in the afternoon.
I have always preferred sleeping with the window open. The fresh air and outside sounds just make me feel more relaxed and sleep better for some reason. It will be even better once the night time insects are out but it’s too early for that. There’s just something about the cooler night time air that makes me feel good. Maybe spending so much time outside while growing up, especially up the mountains with the ever so slight cooler evening breeze coming down into the valley while we were outside at the fire.
