Tough as Nails Workout
I had a KILLER work-out on Tuesday evening. I mean I was seriously a hot sweaty disgusting mess of a girl that evening but I felt pretty damn good afterward!
But before I tell you just how tough I am, I should probably share a funny story about how tough well I’m not.
So I was in the shower on Monday (don’t worry this story is not at all the type it sounds like to start) and Tim was messing with me. You know like messing with the certain while I was trying to shower to just be a pest.Well I quickly realized that I could catch him in this sneaky ways by looking at his reflection through the clock on the wall when he was coming. So after I catching him, oh I don’t know 1 million times, I said “you know I can see your reflection”.
Well he is wise beyond his years.
So he turned off the lights.
I have NO CLUE what happened in that moment but it was like every scary movie I have ever seen where the girl gets attacked in the shower when the lights go off came flashing through my mind. Insert clue here: I just saw that “Candyman” was on the TV guide when we were flipping through the night before which is the movie that freaks me out the most since my older cousins thought it would be OK that I watched it when I was 7.
Well that darkness combined with the fact that I was in the shower literally made me go into this severe frenzy where I proceeded to scream loudly which eventually led to me curling on the floor in the shower crying.
Yes. Curled up like a cat, crying in the shower.
Super tough right? Needless to say I DID NOT get a picture of this and Tim felt terrible assuming he just found some deep dark childhood secret. Turns out, I’m just not always very tough.
But sometimes I am! So this workout on Tuesday was AMAZING.
It looked like this (which I completed with Kari, Chris, and Michelle)…
- 1 mile run warm-up
- 30 toes to head
- 30 dips
- 90 jump-ropes
- 30 push-ups
- 30 burpees
- 30 box jumps
- 15 Thrusters
- 15 push press
- 15 dip-drives
- 5 Wall climbs
Total workout time (including run and cool down): 1 hour
This was just what I needed after a seriously busy weekend eating my way through life during Kara and I’s girls weekend in Chicago! This workout took me 36 minutes and 36 seconds. A tough but wonderful 36:36 I spent on a Tuesday evening. When I got home that evening I pretty much wanted to eat everything in the house which is always a sign of a good workout.
Speaking of good workout signs- did you know that you can tell if you had a really great workout from your belly? If your belly is cold is means you had a good workout. My friend Mary (blogs over at Fervent Foodie) told me that once. And I trust Mary and Livestrong and I did find an article about this on the Livestrong website.
Great job to the ladies in CrossFit class! We killed it!
