3500 m row

Well, I hoped for an exciting WOD today and I think that worked out.  It's row 2000 meters, take a break, row 1000 meters, take a break, and row 500 meters.  I love to row!! :) I'll report on how it goes later.  I think I'm going to the 7 or 7:30 WOD.

Update:  Rowing 3500 m wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it would be. 
  • 2k m = 9:23
  • 1k m = 4:50
  • 500 m = 2:15
The only part of the the whole workout that was hard was the last 400 m of the 2k row.  I think I could have finished well sub 9 mins if I hadn't pooped out towards the end of that. 

To review my food for the day:
Breakfast = chicken sausage scramble with peppers and onions
AM = coffee with coconut milk for cream
Lunch = left over shepard's pie
Snack = almonds + coconut shreds, grapes
Dinner = TBA

I've been stressin' about my "trouble spots" lately - namely my lower abs and thighs.  My abs, however, over the past few days have looked pretty good so I'm excited about that.  (Maybe we'll actually do pictures one of these days?)  I'm still in a love/hate relationship with the lower half of my body.  Somedays I think it looks different and other days I think it looks grossly out of proportion to the rest of my body.  (Hello, body dysmorphia!) I didn't pass the "butt test" the other day at the gym, but I didn't really care.  My butt needed to shrink in size.  It's my upper inner thigh that is currently not budging and giving me fits. I swear its like the only thing keeping me from going down another pants size.

  1. That upper inner thigh is my hardest place too! Ugh, why does it have to be so stubborn!
