Double-Dub Em

Warrior Dash
I'm officially doing CrossFit instead of the strength training program Warrior Dash provides. CF is MUCH easier to keep up with, and I'm still getting a great workout. (Plus, I get to sound all hardcore and stuff. "Yeah, I'm about to go do some CrossFit. *stretch, flex*")

For endurance training, I've been riding my bike to work and to the gym, both of which are about a 10 minute bike ride away from my house. Not much distance, but until I can actually make it up the little hills on those routes, I'm not going to bother biking further. It will be a joyous day when I can run again and actually train for the 5k distance.

Work
One of my female coworkers started teaching me Spanish on the fly while we work, so I decided to let her teach me instead of the cook who originally offered. He's a nice guy, but meeting outside of work so I can learn Spanish? That honestly makes me uncomfortable.

Still training for that shift leader position. Went through closing procedures with one of the managers the other night, and counted down a drawer by myself this afternoon (couple errors, but nothing I can't fix next time). Got some feedback from the main managers today, so I've got some general things to work on, which is good.

Martial Arts
The planning for that seminar is going well. I'm over the hard part, so now it's just advertising and making sure things run smoothly until it's all done. I'm really excited about it! :)

Going to another seminar this weekend. It's up in Indiana, which should be a fun trek. Thankfully, I don't have to ride a Greyhound the whole way - I'm meeting up with a friend and we're riding the rest of the way up together. I'm rooming with one of my good friends for the weekend, and we're gonna have so much fun. Swimming, CrossFit, and training. :) Awww yeeeaaaah.


And that's the news! Now for a random question. :D

What is your favorite aquatic animal, and why?
I love sea turtles. Dolphins and whales are awesome, but sea turtles are freakishly large and live an incredibly long time. Plus they ride the ocean currents, which is just cool. (Okay, maybe I also think of Crush and Squirt.)

"You so totally rock, Squirt! Gimme some fin. Noggin! Duuuuude."

  1. So...there's going to be some CrossFit at the Midwest Taikai? Let me know. I may be up for some of that.

    Turtles for me too. Hehehehe.

    1. Yep! Maybe not the posted WODs - the gym looks limited on supplies and space - but there will definitely be some CrossFit going on. :) I'll keep you posted.
