A Week of WODs
Monday came dark and early when the alarm went off at 4:45 a.m. It was still dark and early when I finally got out from under the covers at 5:05 a.m. to stagger toward my pile of gym clothes awaiting me on the bathroom floor where I’d be sure to trip over them in my stupor.
- high wall balls x 20 (10lb)
- pullups x 15
- walking lunges with bicep curl x 20 (12lb)
- push up x 30

Ended Monday afternoon with a 40 minute elliptical to stretch out and get a little no impact cardio in.

- push press x 12 (55lb)
- situps x 20

Friday. For the 3rd time this week I would be the only one at the gym at 5:30 a.m. This is not good. My girlfriends might need a swift kick.
Our trainer (also a Joe like my hubby, that gets confusing sometimes when talking about workouts) led me in a nice long stretch session after today’s workout because a) I haven’t been doing that enough and b) I really needed it for the weekend ahead.
Now I have to get ready to run. I haven’t been running. Or jogging. But my spouse was going up to photograph a trail running event. I could stay home and bake, or do Christmas crafts or eat. Or I could tag along. But why just tag along when I could get a workout in? So I signed up to run (jog) 4.2 miles in the dirt (mud) tomorrow. It will deserve its own post I’m sure.
