I woke up feeling crappy still this morning! I even slept sitting up so I wasn’t all clogged up when I woke up.  Work was a nightmare today because our computer systems were down! I have a gazilion sticky notes everywhere from all the information I have to update once they come back up! Also, mother nature decided to visit me today so I was feeling completely unmotivated and crabby!! My co-workers and I went out for a lunch time run and I was complaining like a baby before we started.  One of them actually said “wow, this is the first time I’ve ever heard you complain about working out!”  I pushed myself to do it and I actually felt better afterwards. As usual! But sometimes it’s just really hard to get that motivation to do it.  Today’s run we only ran 3 miles because we’re trying to get one of my coworkers motivated and help her pass her fitness test. Sometimes I feel like she has a mental block and she has a hard time pushing past it.  Physically I believe she is capable of doing so much more, but she has a really hard time believing in herself.  I’m wracking my brain trying to find a niche for her.  Mine is I’m highly competitive and I make goals that I want to achieve. I find that once I have a goal, like train for a 1/2 marathon, make a certain time on a WOD, or lift a certain amount I work much harder during my daily workouts.  So that was today’s lunch time workout.  I did a few sprint races to certain points in the run so we still got a good sweat on but still stayed with her, so I’m sorry there’s no accurate time for my run today.  I did workout after work today…again still feeling like crap so it was hard to motivate myself.  But here it is…

Monday’s workout:


15 minutes to find a 1RM Snatch (Mine was 115#)



21-15-9 of:

Deadlifts 155#
HSPU(again no wall space for handstand push ups so I did incline push ups)

Time was 4:58..I’m a bit of an idiot and accidentally loaded my bar with 175#…I was wondering why my first 21 were a bit heavier than expected!! I switched it out and did 155# for my 15-9.
