Friday I was back in the box and the WOD was so bad for me I can't even write about it. It was a DNF where I literally walked out, sat in the car and cried for a minute and went home. Damn pullups. I chalked it up to a week of being sick and not being ready to come back yet.
Saturday I ran an annual race, the Celtic Solstice 5-miler up in Baltimore, MD. It's a beautiful race through Druid Hills Park--hilly, around a lake, always the weekend before Chrismas, so nice and chilly. They do have the coolest race schwag and post race wood--hot wine and italian shortbread cookies! Yum. Ran a great race for having been sick--46:30. Not as fast as my turkey trot, and far from my PR of this course at around 40min...yes, I once ran an entire race posting sub 8 min miles...oh to be speedy again! It was an enjoyable run and it reminded me how much I actually LIKE running and how much I miss training for races. Post new year plans will include a weekly running group for sure. Just after we get moved into that house!
Monday morning WOD was Back squats x2. 155# for 2! Woot! We had a 20 minute time limit and I'm convinced I could have probably sank 165 if I had time. It felt great to fell strong again.
WOD 2: 30 pullups, 30 dips. Not for time, I just did 'em. Done. I did try a few unassisted dips on the rings and I've got about two in me. They are feeling strong as well!
