“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” ― Dalai Lama XIV
I. 5 Rounds:
10 Barbell Lunges (Bar in Front Rack) (155/105)
*20 Minute Time Cap
Completed: in 10:43, @ 65lbs. This was hard. Who am I kidding. Anything with Burpees is hard. Sometimes I feel dreadfully slow at Burpees. Usually am last when there’s a Burpee, or 50, involved. Today was no different; as was last to finish. Albeit to the lovely cheers and encouragement of the class. That’s okay though. Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming.
II. Run Max Distance in 12 Minutes
III. Foam Rolling on Calves
During foam rolling and before the run, Dean asked the class if we had any new goals in mind. As the 90-DC for some is coming to an end. I rose my hand immediately. Oh. Oh. I know! Pick me! (Apparently CF also turns me into a total dork.) ‘I just signed up for a 1/2 marathon,’ I said. (Step 2, tell everyone you know your goal, that way you’re less likely to quit.)
Other goals from peeps in class included; eating clean, working on form. One goal in particular I really liked, ‘Keep coming to CF.’
To which Dean inquired, ‘What is it that you like about CF?’
ACF Peep responded, ‘It makes everything else in my life that much better.’
Couldn’t have said it any better.
The mile run at the end of class was, dare to say, pretty easy. Beautiful day, sun was out, was feeling well warmed up and in stride. Ran it in 10:30. The Endurance Team training for the 1/2 marathon in October starts this weekend. At 8am. On Saturday morning. Riiiight. I’ll be there.
