Whatcha waiting for, Murphy?
Ooooh, peanut butter.
A lick from Dad’s knife was worth the wait.
I woke up bright and early this morning to make OMG Pancakes for Mal and me for breakfast. (I love this recipe so much.) I topped mine with maple syrup and a scoop of Teddie peanut butter. I also drank a glass of Dandy Blend with coconut milk. Fab breakfast.
After breakfast, I finished up a freelance piece and then headed to CrossFit for a workout. On the agenda: Shuttle Runs aka “Suicides,” which, honestly, are the worst, right? They’re so frickin’ hard and they make you feel terrible all over… Jello legs, blood lungs… but, I do love a good challenge!
3 x 300 yard Shuttle Runs
*Full recovery between efforts; 3-4 minutes rest. Foam rolling while recovering.
300 yards = 12 gym lengths
Score = slowest sprint time
Did you happen to notice the “12 gym lengths” in the WOD above? These shuttle runs were long. And brutal.
My favorite competitor, Kerrie, was in class with me this morning, so my goal was to keep up with her. She’s speedy! We finished the first two 300 meter shuttle runs at the exact same time, but, on the final one, I just died. Totally died. My head was still in it, and I really tried to beat Kerrie, but my body wanted no part in it. Next time, KG!

Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway to win a free registration to Run for the Dream. Here are your winners:
I’d love to run this race! I don’t live far from Williamsburg, and I’d love to be involved in anything for Wounded Warrior.
The race would be an awesome idea for a mother daughter trip this summer and for both of us to do the 8K. My mother and i did our first 5K together last year.
Congrats, Caitlin and Sara! Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize.
Question of the Day
Is there anything worse than shuttle runs/suicides?
What food is worth waiting for?
My picks: Kimball’s ice cream, breakfast at the Wheelhouse Diner, and pretty much any freshly baked dessert or crockpot meal. NOT worth the wait: Sonic. Remember that ridiculous adventure? What were were thinking?! Haha!
