Weekend Recap: CrossFit Open

Immediately after work on Friday, Josh and I made a beeline to pick up Daisy (we were dog sitting), drop her off at home and then headed straight to the Box. The CrossFit Open is upon us and we were doing WOD 14.1 that night. I am going to go into more detail about each of the workouts on separate posts but the energy in the gym was dynamic. The Open might be one of my favorite times of year!

The second I finished 14.1...I was exhausted

After everyone completed the WOD, a group of us went to refuel with greasy Mexican and discuss the workout. Open WODs require strategy, so for people as crazed for crossfit as we are it provides a lot of conversation topics :)

The next morning, I woke up tight and sore, but Josh and I decided to go get in another WOD: 

1000 Meter Row
100 Air Squats
1000 Meter Run

I am not sure if it loosened me up or not, but by the time we got home I was ready to EAT!

Later I took sweet Daisy for a nice long walk! She was loving the weather...sunny but chilly!

The rest of the day was spent wedding planning/finalizing our registry. That night we celebrated our 5 Year Dativersary with some wine and homemade cajun food. Yum yum yum!

On Sunday, I seriously thought about going to the gym and giving 14.1 another shot. I was happy with my score but I knew I could do better. In the end I opted for another leisurely day at home: eating, napping and doing laundry. Late that afternoon, we dropped Daisy back off at her parents' house (much to my dismay) and then Josh and I went to Mass. There was talk that a huge snow storm was going to hit so Josh made sure we had tons of supplies.

Sure enough the next day work was canceled because it looked like this:

Although I was home, I spent most of the day working. I am really thankful for my new laptop on days like this. I ended the day with a cocktail. The ingredients were kept chilly with a natural refrigerator: 

How was your weekend?

Considering tomorrow is Friday, it is a bit late for this post but why live life by a set of rules :)

  1. Daisy told me she had such a great time with y'all and that she can't wait for another visit with Aunt O and Uncle J! :)
