Puppy is in the most snuggle pot mood at the moment. I think it is the freezing ridiculous winter temperature. Man of the House and Puppy have been loving their couch naps.
Man of the House felt I needed some treats and bought me the coolest compression gear I have seen. I cannot wait to test it on Saturday.
He also bought me a super cool pink visor. Partly to benefit him so he can spot me in the crowd at races but also because he knows how much I love pink!
I have discovered how slow I truly am. Yesterday at CrossFit we had a 3km run as part of the WOD. I was one of the slowest but managed it in around 15 minutes or so. Meaning 5 minutes per km which is my fastest yet.
They followed it with an AMRAP (as many reps as possible) to take it to a 30 minute WOD. It was 5 dead lifts, 20 double unders, 5 handstand push ups and 20 full sit ups.
I managed 5 rounds of those. They work you hard! I also discovered I suck at dead lifts and aim to improve ASAP.
Today was a 12 minute WOD with 2 snatches and then alternating box jumps and toes to bar each minute. Which in my case is step ups and knees to chest. I’ll get there eventually.
So have we all heard of a Cronut yet? If not, check it out. I bet you are cursing me right now. Or at least let out a Homer style “d’oh”!
Yep. There is “crommotion” happening on the streets of New York. Why does Brisbane not invent such magical treats? Melbourne has been quick to get on board with Movida launching their version of the now trademarked Cronut.
Hipsters around Brisbane, I call on you to demand this heart attack pastry from your local patisserie so that we too may enjoy this sweet good. On a massive workout day. It has 15 grams of butter and like a gazillion grams of fat and sugar. I know. D’oh!
Lucky I also come with healthy ideas to make up for it! I cooked up a healthy chicken parmigiana last night with half a chicken breast, tomato paste and light ricotta. Served with a big old salad.
Tonight was Mediterranean pizza night with grilled eggplant, zucchini, cherry tomato, olives, yoghurt, mint and parsley on pita. Moderation people.
I bet you’re still thinking about Cronuts? Sorry…
