Just Know You're Not Alone

Happy happy Sunday! It's been a crazy week, but I made it through and through a great weekend full of CrossFit, a full day at my best friend's house with her and her amazing family and a check in with early Christmas presents from Mama Dukes! Before I update you on the weekend -- I got to see Dollface for sushi last Tuesday and Ro last Wednesday -- and let's back up and talk about #SweatPink deals for this past week...take note at NO runs...I really need to get refocused...marathon in 6 weeks...

MONDAY - Deadlift PR at 135 for set of 5! PR!!

TUESDAY - Off day!

WEDNESDAY - Front squat - not a happy day for me - sucked at FS - got 115 3 sets of 3 - tried to get 125 and couldn't :( Metcon kicked my butt too!!

THURSDAY - We did power snatch + Overhead squat -- 1 EMOTM for 12 minutes -- check the video...ignore the horrible sloppy OHS but that's 70#-- YEAH BUDDY!! PR time :)

FRIDAY we worked on back squat - which I PR'ed last Thursday at 3 sets of 6 at 135 - I got 145 up for 1 set of 6 and 1 set of 4.  Hope to get all sets of 6 next week. We had a 10-1 metcon of pull-ups & HSPUs. 

SATURDAY we had split jerks - 2 EMOTM for 7 - and I got 95#!! Another PR!The metcon was 5 split jerks (65#), 7 box jumps and 9 sit ups. Felt great to get it in before getting on the road to MD.

Now for the rest of Saturday - headed down to MD to spend the weekend with my best friend and her family.  I find it awesome that in the last year not only did my mom move to MD and is so much closer to me, but so did my best friend and her family.  They live about a mile apart from each other - talk about perfect! What I love most about going to see Boo is we can sit around and do NOTHING and we still have a great time. 
Which is pretty much what we did.  However, we did go to Fleet Feet Gaithersburg down there - it was a BEAUTIFUL store.  I love going to all the difference ones and checking them out. After that we went to Buca di Beppo.  SCRUMPTIOUS!! I had not been there in forever. Saturday night we watched Arthur is the trailor - it was SUPER cute! Check it out if you haven't seen it :)
Stopped by Mama Dukes on my way home - got two early Christmas presents -- new pots and pans and new luggage!!! YAY!!! Just in time for my trips - home for the holidays and Orlando for my attempt at a marathon haha :)

Now, I am working on food and workout plans for the week for my #Elf4Health challenge.  I have a lot to do - lesson plans, laundry, pick up the apartment and clean. BUSY week coming up - my girls have their second game tomorrow, Bengals vs Eagles game with my T on Thursday, school holiday party and CrossFit Aspire holiday party on Friday and group lil gathering here on Saturday! PLUS I should hear if I got into the Nike Women's Half in DC this upcoming April.  *fingers crossed please*

How'd you #SweatPink this week?
Any fun plans coming up?
