HOLY CRAP I’M BACK IN CIVILIZATION.
I really really loved being in the middle of nowhere at my little-piece-of-heaven cabin, but there is only so much lake-ing I can do without going a bit bananas. I missed my internet (don’t crucify me), blogging (I meeeeeessed you guys), and CrossFit. Thank goodness our next stop on the road, Portland, Maine, has two boxes.
The closest to me is CrossFit Casco Bay. CFCB it is!
I had a great time with them tonight. The athletes were all very welcoming (I like to think we’re a welcoming bunch), and I got some good restaurant recommendations out of them. I also got a good sweat sesh in.
WORKOUT: Warmup (samson stretches, good mornings, OHS, KB swings, pushups, pullups), 8-minute EMOM (8 push presses, total of 64), and then the partner WOD (45 lb. weight carried while other partner works: 400 m run, 100 air squats, 50 KB swings).
It was difficult, but after three days of chill time, I needed to get my butt whooped. I haven’t had caffeine in a few days, so I’m definitely going to have a cup or two of coffee before tomorrow’s WOD. I don’t like to rely on it, but I definitely feel the extra explosiveness I have when there’s some caffeine in my body.
Anyone want some Moo Cream? Casual. Restaurant // dinner recap in the morning!
Portland, Maine locals: Recommendations for places to eat // awesome things to see?
How do you get your sweat on when you’re on vacay?
What do you miss the most when you’re away from home?
^^ These are hefty questions. Don’t be stressed.
