I went to my CrossFit class twice this week. It seems silly to drive to Huntsville early in the morning if I am not going to work afterwards but I love the class and I want to go as much as I can before my membership runs out. Both the classes I have been to this week have been heavy in the weights
Now with the bout of cold weather that has drenched the south this week I haven't been overly excited about going outside but I am officially in marathon training so its time to get back to the streets. It came at a pretty good time. My cuz was alone this week, her running buddy is out for the week, so I stepped in.
We left out this morning in the freezing cold and got in a good 3 miler. This was my first run since I hurt my knee a few weeks ago (like 6 weeks ago) so I was a little bit tentative about it but my knee held up just fine for the first run out. Yipee!!!!
I could have used a few more clothes in the cold weather, I also could have done without spilling water on my leg before we got started...that helped with the cold...but I did manage to break in my new running gloves!
After a heavy lifting CrossFit and a very cold run I was ready for a break. I had a little lunch with my sisters and headed home for some R&R. Then my idle time got the best of me and I thought it would be a great time to try to fix my garage door (or attempt to) and load up some old broken TVs that need to go the recycle center.
I worked for quite a while cleaning out my garage and trying to fix my garage door, to know avail, and then decided it was time to pack up the old box televisions. Little did I know that the TVs weight a combine weight of 1.932 pounds. I got the first two packed up and then moved on to the biggest one. I was not quite prepared for the big one. It weighs about 80lbs, no exaggeration, and it took all I had to get it off the ground.
I finally got it picked up and headed to the trunk of my car. It didn't fit so I tried to move it to the front seat, again, no luck so I tried it every way I could think. It was not going into my car in the state that it was in and I was exhausted. After 2 hard workouts my muscles were shot and I came up with the brilliant idea to just take it apart, how hard could that be?
After my break I took another run at the TV. I just pulled it across the driveway and put it in the garbage pickup pile and can only hope that the garbage men will pick it up tomorrow......here's hoping, otherwise it's staying right where it is. Oh, and my garage door still does not work!
I had evening plans so there was no time for another workout. Instead I mooched some spaghetti from my sisters and then went to choir practice. I figure picking that TV up 20 times or more had to count as some sort of weight lifting.
I haven't quite figured out my plan for tomorrow. It will include job hunting and running but who knows what else I will be able to get into with the rest of my time.
