Cookies and donuts

Seriously!!! It feels like that's all I've been eating lately. It's not true, but it feels that way. I have let the perfect storm knock me around and out for a bit. It started with Murph on Monday. Crossfit has what they call the hero workouts. Murph is a classis and one that it seems all Crossfits do for Memorial Day. It's a 1 mile run, 100 pull ups, 200 push ups, 300 squats, followed by a 1 mile run. I did that. Only I did an 800 meter run, not 1 mile. But for the next two days my legs were killing me. My quads and calves were so tight I could hardly walk. They were causing my knee to swell, it was brutal. Also, this is the last week of school and it's been a little crazy. I have projects to grade and final grades to enter and a room to clean and summer school to prep for..Plus I'm starting my new classes....It's a lot of pressure. I have not been to Crossfit since Monday. As a result, more cookies and donuts have snuck their way into my mouth then should be allowed. I feel like the Pillsbury dough boy, soft and squishy. But I'm not going to let it keep me down.

Tomorrow night it's back to Crossfit. On Sunday I start my running program. I will be a runner by the end of the summer. I'm going to do Crossfit 5 or 6 days a week and run 3 to 4 days a week. I'm looking forward to 8 weeks of brutal workouts, eating right, and lots of naps and rest. It sounds perfect to me.

I have other plans too. I'm redoing the room I'm sitting in right now. My computer room has become a disaster. I'm getting rid of my desk and building a new one. I have the wood outside that I have to stain and varnish. I really need to get a couple 3m n95 for the fumes. I hate breathing those fumes. I also want to redo the spare room. It has rapidly become a junk room, time to clean it out.

So those are my summer plans. Oh, I also plan on getting in some beach time too. I'm thinking of heading to the beach at least 2 or 3 times a week. I totally can not wait.....
