I feel like such a bad blogger this week! Yes I am still alive and kicking, things have just been so manic and busy that real life has had to come first!
Mid week I was up to the north of Scotland to see my parents for a flying visit and to meet one of my fellow coursemates in Aberdeen. And the rest of the time I have been studying, of which I still have so much more to do so this will just be a quick update on what I like to call ‘Friday Feelings’ haha!
First off I must announce my competition winner! Congratulations Paige C! You have won a free entry for a US Spartan Race of your choice! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can send you the race code!
I just have to let you know about the lunch out that David and I had last weekend at Juice Garden in Glasgow, so good! They do a variety of juices, focusing on quality and nutrient density and follow through with a selection of lunch items.
I had the ‘Supreme Greens’ juice and the salmon salad – grilled salmon with greens, butternut squash, fennel, pomegranate seeds and almonds. Amazing! Such a find, will be back soon for sure!
This weekend, the plan is just to relax! We have both had such a hectic week that we are just crying out for a bit of chill out time. Will do a bit of shopping Saturday morning (aka Costco) and then come home to enjoy a leisurely lunch, followed by, you guessed it, binge watching the new season of House of Cards. Is there a better way to spend a chill out weekend? Good eats, wine, your BFF/ love and a Netflix marathon. I think not.
Another reason why we are both shattered? The CrossFit Open began today!
We were both down at the box, 6.30am to tackle 15.1 (& 15.1a!) and it wasn’t as bad as expected. Then again we didn’t know what to expect! More details on the WOD on Monday (or for those CrossFitters, I know for sure you already know the details!). But I was happy to do the WOD at the prescribed scaled weight – but still am happy I didn’t ‘officially’ sign up. 15.1a was a struggle!
I know I will do all the WOD’s, hopefully at scaled and not lower, every Friday and can track my progress from that.
Now that 15.1 is over for us (David did amazing by the way- those snatches were heavy!) we can’t help but ask, ‘what do you think 15.2 will be’?! Argh this Open really does get obsessive! Haha!
Anyhoo, I need to head off now and get back to studying. Hope you all have a great weekend and see you Monday!
What are your plans for the weekend?
Have you done or are doing 15.1 in the next few days?
