I could either buy an eleiko weightlifting set.
Or
Pay rent for the next 9 months.

Obvious choice….

Ha, yes. I just bought 1/8 of a dining set for my cousin’s wedding… And I told my parents for my wedding registry I was going to way beyond the pretty china plates. Mine’s going to have Eleiko plates, followed by a platform, barbells, sleds, rings, a coupe ropes, a C2 and a rig. Who needs a casserole dish anyway?

Ladies, I had NO ass in high school. CrossFit does a body good.

120# Overhead Squats. 

You go girl!

I read your full commentary. I don't think that anyone should be compelled to have sex, but really, is sex so bad that you have to be talked into it? I mean, I never feel like going to work, but I do it. Sex is way better than the best day at work, unless you're having sex at work, which isn't something I do. Damn, I just want everyone to always be happy banging all the time.

No sex isn’t that bad. Like I said I ENJOY sex.

But sometimes I’m really tired or sometimes I’m just not in the mood. What you just said is what EVERY guy says when talking a girl into sex, “is sex so bad that you have to be talked into it?” That’s what guilt trips us because it’s not bad and we’ll usually enjoy it once it gets going, but it’s still the fact that a male pushes and pushes AND PUSHES and doesn’t understand NO. Like omg just reading what you said makes me hot and mad (not at you necessarily) but b/c men just can not understand WHY sometimes we say no. Sometimes it’s not about you or sex it’s just about the girl having a right to say NO. 

Some things guys say to get us to have sex:

  • Don’t you love me?
  • Am I really that bad?
  • Do you not find me attractive anymore?
  • But babe I’m so horny! 

Notice that the male turns the situation around to be all about HIM. Sex is a two way act. Sometimes we just want to fucking sleep, want to read a book, want to just chill on our computer, or just straight up not in the mood. & it’s about the male sex respecting that decision.

I might regret this if it hails again, but THE WEATHER IS SO WONDERFUL. Cornell finally looks like a stereotypically beautiful college campus! Paralleling my slight enthusiasm for spring, I hit the gym this morning determined to work on a weakness- solo strength- and also try working in strength in a metcon that was mostly for conditioning.
12:00 EMOM:
2 Back Squats (155&#160;lb)
1 Deadlift (200&#160;lb)
5 rounds: (14:05) 
30 Sit-Ups
15 One-Arm Hang Power Snatches (35&#160;lb DB)
8 Front Squats (2x30&#160;lb DB)
My back is probably going to be sore tomorrow- at the 6 minute mark of the EMOM, I went to pull a deadlift without giving any time to recover from the squat, and sat there at the bottom position looking like an idiot. But that was the only &#8220;failed&#8221; try of the strength portion, so I&#8217;m happy with that. (Aside from one or two questionable squats, which I made up along the way. Main point was I got &#8216;em in.) Also throughout the WOD, the bars were bending, which hasn&#8217;t happened in awhile- made me feel a little like Hugh Jackman! In the second WOD, the front squats were such core burners, which I wouldn&#8217;t have expected with just 60&#160;lb racked. A really good scalable workout to finish off the morning. Also, does anyone happen to have any tricks for positioning the dumbbells so my wrists don&#8217;t get so bruised?

I’m not sure if that day will ever come, but I’ll definitely keep my eye out for it. (Super impressive if you can though!)

And thanks! Water breaks in a hot gym are absolutely fantastic, especially when the fountain is a foot away from the erg. No need to panic about the time going by.

Waiting for my chem academic support section while listening to Barbell Shrugged and staring at my English essay. Lots of progress… learning about Kelly Starrett, Becoming A Supple Leopard, and mobility, that is.

My legs are still not dead from the row, so that’s super awesome. Eventually I’d like to try a marathon, but maybe next time I’ll just try rowing for 45 minutes, and increase the time limit from there. And before dinner, as a result of dat endurance, I had the full-on keto breath when walking to the dining hall. My body is clearly digging that fat-laden American-ish breakfast.

Also I found out about a club at school that climbs Kilimanjaro to raise money for OF treatment, which is ironically exactly what I want to do. Getting in that application soon, and I’m just trying to get pumped for a loong night!

Trust me- the first time I tried, I wanted to curl up in a ball and cry halfway through. But just plug in the headphones, keep an even pace and counted breathing, and it’s over before you know it!
