About Me

My photo
My excessive energy, extreme narcissism, and intense love of neon-colored spandex is both managed and fueled by my addiction to fitness. I push myself to extremes and I push other people's buttons. Obviously I needed my own blog.

Running Posts are Back!

I'm in Brookhaven this week house-sitting and caring for two of my favorite animals, Marley the golden retriever and Toby the ninja cat. Frank and Marley are pals so it's just a big slumber party.

I swear I did not ask them to pose for this photo.
Brookhaven is its own incorporated city north of Atlanta. I really like Brookhaven because it feels like we're in the suburbs, but we're only 9 miles from my apartment, which is in the middle of town.

I ran at a leisurely pace from the house out to Caldwell Road, and just followed it for about 2 miles. I knew I only had time for about a 4 mile run before I needed to take Miss Marley to the vet. It was also 80 degrees out and this princess needs to acclimate to running the heat again.

Workout 15.5
27-21-15-9 reps for time of:
Row (calories)

Men use 95 lb.
Women use 65 lb.

Open workout 15.5 was my opportunity to redeem myself after a very disappointing 15.4. A year before, I did thrusters at 65# for the very first time during 14.5. They were difficult and I could only do about three at a time, and I got no-repped like nobody's business.

My friend Laia Marti captured me mid-thrust. Awesome photo, but it also motivated me to start tracking what I eat. I still consume all sorts of fried deliciousness, but at least I'm tracking my macros?

14.5: 21-18-15-12-9-6-3 reps for time of 65# thrusters and bar facing burpees
I love Laia's photos and she has some great shots of 15.5 from CrossFit Hell's Kitchen and Reebok 5th Avenue that I'm excited to showcase in this post. She is seriously talented and you should hire her to photograph your next event.

Couples who work out together, stay together.
