life is too short

By SOLO

Have you ever been stuck in traffic, and thought “ugh… life is too short for this”? I started writing this post in my head, during one of those lovely bumper-to-bumper afternoons…

life is too short...

  • to be stuck in traffic
  • to work through lunch
  • to drive automatic transmission
  • to watch sports
  • to take the elevator
  • to have bad sex
  • to wear tight underwear, ill-fitting bra and uncomfortable shoes
  • to eat cheap cheese, Wonder bread, store-bought cupcakes, stale cookies, canned vegetables and low fat ice cream
  • to drink instant coffee, and bottled beer
  • to use dull knives and dark towels, small mugs
  • to give half-assed hugs and weak handshakes

What am I forgetting? Add it in comments!

P.S. Last week during a quiz I told my students not to stir after they finished, but find their happy place instead… Here’s one student’s interpretation…

and a week worth of training…

WOD:

  • 5-7min jumping rope
  • easy 5k run on a treadmill
  • 45min, teaching hatha yoga
  • 150min, teaching hot yoga

WOD – SUNDAY:

  • 75min, restorative yoga

WOD – SATURDAY:

  • 150min, teaching hatha yoga
  • 2h 48min – long run [~20.4km –> first and last km through knee deep snow]

WOD – FRIDAY:

CrossFit:

front squat 5-5-5-5-5
warm-up: 10(35) / 8(65) / 5(85) / 5(105)
5(115) – 5(125) – 5(135) – 5(145) – 5(150)

8min AMRAP: 8 knee-to-elbow + 8 kettlebell swing + 16 air squat
6 rounds + 6 knee-to-elbow

WOD – THURSDAY:

I’m still pretty clueless about all these running workouts and paces. So until I figure that out, tempo run = pace that makes me want to stop. Like… right away… 🙂 Then stay there for the duration of the run. Brutal.

WOD – WEDNESDAY:

CrossFit:

6 x 250m Row
Immediately following each interval – Set of max effort hand release push-ups
Rest ~ 4 minutes after each interval
set 1: 58sec / 45 push-ups
set 2: 57sec / 46 push-ups
set 3: 55sec / 32 push-ups
set 4: 57sec / 35 push-ups
set 5: 57sec / 37 push-ups
set 6: 51sec / 40 push-ups
Was pretty happy with my rowing times. 🙂
  • 60min, hot yoga
