October 8

Last night I finished A Discovery of Witches and I had a great night's sleep and woke up this morning feeling refreshed and ready to take on whatever the day wanted to throw at me!

Then I checked Facebook. Tongue Out I saw some of my CrossFitbuddies post that they had gotten really dirty at the 5:15am WOD (workout of the day.) My mind started spinning. What would we do that I would get dirty?? One picture just showed their hands, so I thought they were doing bear crawls. I quickly changed my mind about my shirt choice, got the kids ready for school, etc., and off we went.

I got to the box and was happily surprised to see that this was our WOD!

Rope climbing, tire flipping, and push-ups! There is just something about flipping tires that makes me all happy and giddy :)

We had a 20 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) to complete 3 rope climbs, 5 pushups, and 5 tire flips.

I was feeling so good, that I decided to use the 250lb tire, which was the 2nd biggest tire out on the course today!

I made it 11 complete rounds, plus did an extra set of push-ups before time was called. But I wasn't finished yet. Laughing I did my post-wod 2 mile walk and it was lovely! The weather is getting so nice!

This is what I looked like at the end of my workout! Wink

I guess you could say I got a little dirty! And I still had errands to run! I went to Publix looking like this! And I smelled too. You know it's bad when you can smell yourself. I'm making chicken fajitas for dinner tonight and I needed some bell peppers.

Then I went to the library. While I didn't love A Discovery of Witches, it left me hanging to know what happens next, so I went and checked out the sequel.

I also got some Goddess Girl books for Ella, and Haley had decided she likes them too, so I checked out the entire series since Haley can read a book in a day.

Then I was done with my morning errands.  I need to pick the kids up early because 6 months ago I had the bright idea to schedule the dentist for them all at the same time. Undecided Why did I do that??

How was your day? Have you ever flipped tires?? What are you currently reading??

  • Awesome!  I have never done circuit training, I might try something like this at home, I am happy with my 1/2 mile run and 1/2 mile walk each day.  Smile
  • Okay, I'm very impressed by your tire flipping workout but I'm even more "impressed" that you did all your errands after being so dirty!!  I love it!  Now that is dedication! Smile

    I've always said that it doesn't matter what kind of workout that you do as long as you have FUN and enjoy it!!  It sounds like you are definitely "enjoying" your Crossfit workouts and that's why you do it!!

  • Wow you were a dirty girl! LOL. No I've never flipped a tire. I have a pile of 20 books waiting for me, also waiting to find the time to start reading them unfortunately.
  • WOW, that is amazing. KUDOS! I have never flipped tires but, would love to try one day!
  • Wow!!! That's impressive. I have never lift a tire that big before. I bet you felt great!
  • My son does most of these but I admit that I doubt I could any longer. I'll stick to riding my bike and taking walks for now.
  • Too cool! Wear your well earned smudge with pride Smile I enjoyed DOW but liked the sequel more. Reading Mohsin Hamid's Getting Filthy Rich In Rising Asia, which I recommend. Hope you have a wonderful week & keep up the amazing work
  • Wow! You weren't kidding about getting dirty. I'm really impressed with how you got dirty. Amazing job!
  • You made that tire your bitch! Yeah! I'm reading Let's Explore Diabetes with Owls by David Sedaris and it is LOL hilarious! It's a collection of short stories/essays with a snarky spin.
  • I have definitely never flipped tires, lol. I have seen the people working out at Crossfit before though and it looks absolutely insane!
