First Post CFOT Workout and New Fruit!

So we fly out today and exercising always calms my anxiety. I would have loved some sledge hammer work or tossing around of heavy things, but settled for TABATA in the wet 30ish degree drizzle.

400m run warmup
TABATA Squats (20 seconds of work, 10 seconds rest x 8 rounds): Hit 14/15 each round
400m run
TABATA Pushups (same as squats, but lots few reps)

Despite having Chip as my partner in crime this was not very fun. But, a solid workout nonetheless. My asthma is killing me in this weather so the runs were more of a wheezing shuffle. I'm not quite sure how the running will go in Germany--I've been struggling for a few weeks now with this. Grrrr....wheeeeeze. cough.

Post WOD mediation. 5 minutes laying on the floor trying to think of absolutely nothing (try it--its one of the hardest thing in the world to do) 2 minutes downward dog to reverse the bloodflow.

Also, this week I was introduced to a new fruit. A pummelo. Kinda like an orange, but not so sweet. Kinda like a grapefruit but not so tart. They look like big green medicine balls. They are a bit of work to get to the fruit but are yummy and filling! You should try one.
Next post will be von Deutschland, und veilleicht auf Deutsch!
