We said goodbye to our first snowman as he melted this week. RIP Snowman.
It’s snowing right now but it’s not sticking. It is really cold though. Time to go back to the “cold” colors on my Temperature Blanket. Yay, more purple!
Anyway, I did pretty well with the workouts this week. Every day I did 30 mins of spin bike and then a CrossFit type workout. Usually a modified form of the CrossFit WOD.
Like today I did 20 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) 10 medicine ball cleans, 20 ring rows. I felt BAD by the end of the 20 minutes. I wanted to quit at about 15 minutes to be honest. But I keep thinking “Marathon” in a kind of horrified, why did I sign up for this, I’m terrified kind of way. So I kept going. Any weight loss/strength gain now will help when I start running. I hope.
I really am wondering what possessed me to sign up for this. At the moment it feels like a bad idea. I’ve lost the spark. It would be all to easy to say “Eh, it was $40. Who cares if you don’t do it?” Because literally no one would know or care really. Except for me.
But that’s dangerous thinking. I need to do it because I need to. I want to prove to myself I can do it or at least fail trying. Not just quit before I’ve started.
