I shadowed the 9:30 am CrossFit class. I've been putting in my time so I can hopefully start teaching some classes of my own soon. I stayed for the free yoga class my gym offers every Thursday. We did head stands, fun stuff :). Then it was time for me to actually work out & get the 3rd benchmark WOD done. 5 rounds of 20 burpees & 20 kettle bell swings (35lb.). I still wasn't feeling 100% but I managed to finish in 10:48 which was faster than all but one person on the board from Tuesday (same girl who was faster on the 1st benchmark WOD!). So now I have these times to compare when we do the workouts again at the end of the challenge...I'm really curious to see if I actually have a significant improvement! Hope so!!
Lunch was a "clean out the fridge" salad topped with a can of salmon. Baby spinach, red onions, kalamata olives, sliced almonds, leftover Balsalmic Brussels Sprouts & butternut squash fries. I used some brine from the olives for a dressing.
Now we are headed down to celebrate my nephew's 1st birthday in San Luis Obispo. On the way out of town JD & the kids grabbed some Taco Bell...
I wasn't very hungry so I had a can of green beans. A few hours down the road we stopped for a potty break so I made up a random salad with what I brought in the car. Romaine lettuce, a couple hard boiled eggs, broccoli, sunflower seeds, raisins, sliced almonds, coconut flakes and a few dabs of Paleo Mayo for dressing. I was going to throw on a can of sardines or tuna but I decided to spare my family from that lovely smell in the car :).
We are breaking up the trip by staying at a friend's house in Turlock tonight...but first we are making a pit stop at Trader Joe's in Modesto, good thing I brought an ice chest!
