I was going to go for a bike ride today (reward for finding the floor in my office). And then it got REALLY windy. And then the person I was supposed to ride with said-hey, maybe you should come by and we will do a WOD instead. And I said…..see you in a half hour!? What? Why did I say that?? Who are you!?
WOD = Workout of the Day = crossfit
I haven’t done anything like this since…since….well it predates MJ. But I got there and I said to myself:
(my bar looked JUST like this-without all that pesky added weight)
And so I did a “WOD”. And I lived. And it wasn’t so bad. And I think I may have actually missed it. Freak!
Darryl took this photo as I helped MJ in her “practice Easter egg hunt”. And I look so skinny I need to post it! lol
Yes we had a practice Easter egg hunt!!! We didn’t want to be embarrassed with a 16 month old in a field of chocolate and not know what to do. So we did a mini mock up at home and let her have a chocolate so she got the point, because like her mom, she WILL work for chocolate.
And now after a long weekend of eating I will concentrate on getting back to eating right and working out…..I did a hill run today. I was a little (read a whole lot) hesitant to get back out there and run after Friday’s experience. Thanks to many of you who took time to read and comment on my last post I knew I just had to pick myself up, dust myself off, and get back out there. Success!! Thank you all for your support.
I ran the Good Friday 10 miler…..bit of an eye opener. I came in, as the title suggests, second last. So now I struggle to keep that in perspective. My morning got off to a bad start. Without getting too graphic….I’m pretty sure I had food poisoning. 4 Imodium later I managed to keep in a piece of toast and a banana. Unfortunately I burn through sugar like nobody’s business so at about the 6 mile marker I hit the proverbial wall. I finished but it wasn’t pretty.
Now may be a good time to say I have a 1/2 marathon coming up in June and a 1/2 Ironman in September. Not holding out a lot of hope at this point for the 1/2 marathon but this was just the kick in the a$$ I needed for September. I have 5 months to train and no interest in feeling like I did yesterday. Wish me luck :)
That’s right! I MADE this!!! Are you jealous??
OK so its a total Pinterest hack. And a not very good one at that. But the kids liked them and they tasted alright so its alright by me. I also tried a new recipe I pinned for dinner. Living on the wild side! Serving untested dishes to company.
I think spring may finally be here but I don’t want to jinx it! I have also decided to start fresh. I have mostly wiped this site clean because so much has changed and I have no idea where this is going to take me. One thing remains, I am “Cassey Not Classy”. So if you are still out there, send me a quick hello so I know who is still reading and join me on another random journey.
(perhaps I should include a warning that this won’t be all “paleo” and “crossfit”……although crossfit may be making a reappearance in my life……)
