Yesterday was such a nice day! I relaxed a bit in the morning and then headed out to Kalmus Beach in Cape Cod. It’s just south of Hyannis and I love Hyannis! I hadn’t been out to the beaches near there yet and the road along the water was so cute! I loved it! Total beachy summertime feel! It was $15 to park at the beach (WHAT?!) but the beach was really nice. It was breezy and not too crowded and just totally perfect. I think I could have spent my entire afternoon there but I had errands calling my name!
After about an hour an a half, I went to Whole Foods, came home, cooked, went to Target, and came home again. Unfortunately, CrossFit never made it in my day because I had to cook and since the woman I live with goes to bed so early (she wakes up super early for work), I had to get my cooking done. Instead, I decided just to go for a 20 minute run with some air squats and push ups integrated in. I definitely got hot and sweaty so it worked for me! (And then it got super dark- totally forget how dark it is with no street lamps.)
I spent my evening finishing thank you notes from the wedding and then studied for the GRE. I have been trying to take a break from watching TV on my computer because I’ve had horrible headaches the last few days, so no sunglasses, headbands, or watching the computer. I finally don’t have a headache this morning!
Today I somehow got myself up for CrossFit. I really did not think I was going to manage to get up! It was a partner WOD.
“Fight Gone Bad”
Three rounds of: Wall-ball Shots, 20/14lb Sumo deadlift high-pull, 75 / 55 lbs Box Jump, 20″ box Push-press, 75 / 55 lbs Row (Calories)
My partner and I got 326 reps. Not too bad! She is much newer to CrossFit so we only used 35# on our bar which was super, suuuuper light but I was really not motivated at all this morning so was personally kind of glad that I had a reason to go so light and do half the work. I ended up drenched in sweat (probably cause of the humidity) so I felt good about it!
Today starts my insane 2 weeks of work! Bummer. I’m totally dreading it but I get to see Jon on Wednesday morning so it’s worth it! And my beach day yesterday was really nice and relaxing!
Let me all leave you with a photo of just how adorable my parents were 33 years ago on their wedding day! My dad and my two brothers could be twins! Totally crazy! Also pictured: my sister, age 7 months gestation, in my mom’s belly. Talk about an itty bitty pregnant woman. I love my mom and dad!
